Parable of the Good Samaritan

And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”  And He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?”  And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” And He said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.” But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

The Good Samaritan

Jesus replied and said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him and went away leaving him half dead. And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise, a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.  On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return, I will repay you.’ Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?”  And he said, “The one who showed mercy toward him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do the same.” (Luke 10: 25-37).

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” “And who is my neighbor?”

It is the theme of the parable. The robbers were not neighbors . . . robbers have existed throughout History . . . and nations have robbed other nations. Russia is a contemporary robber of Ukraine.

“Ukraine children are being killed and are being left orphans,” as cruel Putin is delivering his soul to Satan for territorial expansion, when the world we know is about to end. I feel sorry for you Putin, you are terminally ill, and your days are counted. Satan has controlled you as a puppet and is ready to torment you eternally as you are now tormenting innocent Ukranian children.

  • Note: Russia might have prevented this war if it had not taken Crimea.
