Crown Crowd Control

Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Luke 3:7

With a message like Luke 3:7 [“kept saying” is a better translation than “said”] it is a wonder of divine design that no hardline disciple of Moses lifted a stone or raised an allegation against John. Noone could touch John until the appointed time. John was, however, not a one-tune singer. He had several targeted themes in his repertoire.

  1. The baptism related to sin remission
  2. All flesh shall see God’s salvation
  3. Descent from Abraham was irrelevant
  4. Sharing with the havenots
  5. Public officials must be honest
  6. Military discipline demands no violence, no false accusations, and contentment with one’s wages

Immigrant crowd dilemma

Every time, the people of Israel take a stand for decency the State rubs its hands in western dung and plays the whore for applause. Banning people who are different is an Israeli-American pastime. John would definitely recognize them and ask them to be quite since a felled tree without roots will not rise.
