Jesus' attitude towards the out of season fig tree was very peculiar, to say the least.  Of course, you might argue that it was meant as a metaphorical lesson, something to do with the fruitfulness of Israel, but today I'm not in the mood for contortionist interpretations of Scripture.

It is interesting that Scripture is plain when it agrees with the reader's view, or, if not, needs interpretation in the context of something larger that will help the verses to be understood as desired.

If that makes no sense, apply some context, and all will be well.

Atheist Quote of the Day

"Religion is like having a classroom where the students have to show up every day, but there's no teacher. There are a bunch of books around and no one is even sure which on is the text book. Some students insist on one book; others argue just as hard for another. Then suddenly, on the last day, the teacher appears and says he's been watching everybody the whole time. He praises the ones who chose the right text book and sends them off to have cookies and milk.

And then he sets everyone else on fire."
