صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: حنطة و زوان.

In the state of Illinois, an atheist farmer sent a letter to a local newspaper to this effect:

“I’ve a farm. I prepared it on a Sunday, planted it on a Sunday, harvested it on a Sunday and stored on a Sunday. I then found my crops much more that that of my neighbors who consecrate Sundays doing nothing on them. I’ve harvested the crops on October.”

Though the newspaper editor was not experienced in religion when he read the letter he published it commenting,

God does not always take revenge on October.”

→ English translation of the story here at تصفية الحساب. Divider

With David the psalmist, I cry,

“Why do you prosper the way of the wicked?”

You wait for, You want them all to be saved.

Otherwise, let their cups be filled with evil.

You reward everyone according to his/her deeds,

In the appointed time.
