'Jesus ... do not take me yet,' Hugo Chavez weeps

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wept and asked God to spare his life during a pre-Easter Mass after returning from his latest session of cancer treatment in Cuba.

Very little is known about the 57-year-old socialist leader's condition, including even what type of cancer he has. Chavez has undergone three operations in less than a year, and received two sessions of radiation treatment.

He says the latest surgery was successful, that he is recovering well and will be fit to win a new six-year term at an election in October. Yet big questions remain about his future, and on Thursday the strain appeared to show.

In a televised speech to the Catholic service in his home state of Barinas Thursday, Chavez cried and his voice broke as he eulogized Jesus, revolutionary fighter Ernesto "Che" Guevara and South American independence hero Simon Bolivar.

No, Chavez just funds the murderers/butchers by the millions. If you think that is more noble than doing the actual wet-work than congratulations I guess.


What are the signs of a Pharisee?

1) They are interested in an outward appearing religion (Matthew 23:25-27).
2) They judge by their interpretations of outward appearance and draw false conclusions (Matthew 15:1-11).
3) They trust in themselves that they are righteous (Luke 18:9).
4) They do not necessarily actually keep the ten commandments (Matthew 15:3).
5) They rely on traditions more than the Bible for their religion (Matthew 7:1-13).

This is not about the Atrocities that Chavez has committed or will contiune to do, of course it is henious..

However GOD’s Mercy is bigger than Chavez’s crimes...

That is the CROSS, it is not what we have done for GOD, it is all about what Christ did for every one of us at Calvary...
