The comedy of life is in its sarcasms.
(Carey has denied ever having a romantic relationship with Eminem)
Mary is the girl whose innocent looks and name abate any suspicion of evil from her virgin soul. The first time you lay eyes on Mary, there is a breeze that wafts through your soul. She looks angelic- kikumi ku kikumi (100%).
(Eminem has insisted there was one.)
Barabbas needs no introduction. He is well acquainted with evil. His eyes have the fiery red of the flames of Hades. They burn with lust; for blood, for sex, for money. His scarred face would put a baby to sleep out of fright.
So then it is expected that the two souls can never have any fellowship, for what has light to do with darkness or God with Belial? Nothing!
But this is not the case between Mary and Barabbas. Apparently, the two had an encounter some time in the past. At that time no one knew about it but of late the two have been embroiled in an exchange.
See Mary has a husband now, Joseph. They are in love. However Barabbas just doesn’t dig it. See, it seems Barabbas had a thing going with Mary before Joseph came in. Joseph is modest, hasn’t succeeded as much as Barabbas but at least he’s decent and modest. Barabbas is bad ass, so he can’t believe Mary is “married” to Joseph.
So he tells everyone mbu they had a thing going. And he threatens to expose Mary. All the while he is also dissing Joseph.
Don’t you guys think Barabbas is running mad? Why does he kulemerako? Issues of a man’s ego? But Mary isn’t half plain, she is slap. She has braggin rights (if such a thing is sanctioned by God) and can deny any allegations she was with a guy like Barabbas.
I’m beat gene about these Bagpipes from Baghdad as well as being Obsessed over The warning. But why all the pettiness? Can’t we all just kiss and make up and be friends?
Well, all through that ruckus, I learnt one thing. Actually a quote Joseph twittered- “I will permit no man to narrow or degrade my soul by making me hate him.” Booker T Washington.
Let hate not be given an opportunity to squander chances of love. Love that will never pass away, love that will stand to the end.
Baseline: You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you, so that you may become sons of your Father in Heaven. For He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax-collectors do the same? And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax-collectors do so? Therefore be perfect, even as your Father in Heaven is perfect. Mat 5:43-48
