The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Living in the midst of/among “good” people.

The “common grace” of God is evident in humanity (Psalm 145:9).

The stain of Adam’s transgression is extensive, i.e. to every aspect of our being; yet it is not manifest to the same degree in every creature.

In fact, only within a very few does it manifest itself in the totality of its horror! The impact of a Hitler and a Freud needs the evaluation of time. 6 million in the 1940s vs untold millions since the 1900s!

Most of humanity is “good”, since the Imagio Dei manifests “goodness’. Nature is not raw in tooth and claw…

This reality serves to confuse those who are not instructed in and committed to the supremacy of scripture (Isaiah 8:20 & 2 Tim. 2:15).

This confusion often leads to the endorsement and/or acceptance on the part of the believing community of individuals and/or ideologies masked behind the “goodness” of certain individuals.

Case in point: Teddy Kennedy.

His kids love him. In their eyes he was a good father. To listen to the testimonies of those in Massachusetts, everyone loved him.

But, why did they love him and at whose expense?

To the degree Sen. Kennedy “loved” his kids and friends at his own expense, his love is commendable.

To the degree his “love” was at my expense, i.e. any taxpayer, his “love” is to be abhorred.

Robin Hood is a thief, regardless of generation or garb.

When, oh when, will we wake up

Frogs: the kettle IS boiling!

Wa happened

Of a “sudden”, times have changed, or as Lincoln so aptly suggested, “…the war came…”. Came?

9/11, IMHO was “…the point of the wedge…”. Prior to 9/11, the tyranny of Govt. was a seeming distant threat.

Post 9/11, it is an accepted reality.

But, post 9/11 Govt. is not a “threat”, but rather a security blanket. (Be advised…all a security blanket provides is ‘fabric in the nose’..”)

We are no longer the “…land of the free and the home of the brave…”.

Serfdom has a new cosmetic/new advocates, and as the frog in the boiling kettle, we are comfortable.

Animal Farm has come to pass. Some Pigs are more equal than other pigs.
