What is in a name? The man lay on the wayside, stripped of everything and was helpless. He might have supplied answer to that question had not the robbers hit on his occiput hard. Groaning and retching he lay but a scholar came along, only to be followed by another who pointed out to the man in agony and said,”A fool and his money part company soon enough.” The first scholar said,”Tut, tut” He is made in the image of God. He has been robbed.” The second scholar said, “Yes his wealth has certainly made themselves wings”. The first chuckled to say, ‘You are quoting Solomon.” At this point the man in misery groaned,”Help, help..” The scholars ignoring his cry lengthened their strides to discuss their latest paper under blind peer review, “Doctor of Divinity is nothing to be sneezed at. Whoever goes through it shall bowl over the foot notes”. While the other took up the merit of end notes,- and they had enough ammunition to fire away.(For scholar a position to show his scholarship is all that matters. It makes time pass.)
The man on the road lay for some time before a pastor passed by and he looked up to say, “Thank God, you kept me safe,- unlike him,- probably belongs to ethnic minority. Ahem”
The man who came next helped the man in need and when he recovered he straightaway went home and told the wonderful stranger who helped him unasked, “Son, last time they crucified you like a common criminal. This time it is no better.” He called Archangel Gabriel to get ready. “I shall soon show what I think of it all.”
