OK,sometimes a little meme so very nicely encapsulates my thinking that I just want to post it and leave it at that. Indeed, I have posted it elsewhere and it has already been shared kazillions of times in the past
few hours. So I think it is spot on in expressing what so many of us think and feel.
So this will be a rather short post, and I will let the picture speak for itself. And of course it should be obvious that my title can be teased out a bit more. Sin of course is what is wrong with the world, and rebellion against God, truth, reality and common sense.
But the picture nicely embodies so much of that. We live in an age where every idiotic anti-God, anti-family, and anti-sanity idea is held up as a paragon of wisdom and virtue, while everything sensible, godly,
rational and real is dumped on as intolerance, bigotry and hate speech.
Today people can choose to be whatever they want to be. They can pretend to be another sex, or another age, or another race, or another species. That is all just peachy, and anything goes. To even suggest that these choices might be rather problematic is seen as the epitome of
hate and narrowmindedness.
But make a choice for Jesus Christ and Scripture and morality and family and all hell breaks out. Then you have crossed the line and must be punished. You must be put in your place, handed over to the thought police, and re-educated. Such independent thinking is verboten in our
Brave New World.
Anyway, enough waffle from me. This picture is a real winner. It tells us so much about just what is wrong about the West today. And it hints at what we must do to turn things around before it is too late.
