Lying in bed, breathing through a tube, gives a person a chance to observe humanity from a unique angle. On the TV above me, I could follow the story of a self-interested president trying to hold onto power, despite the will of the people.
Watching this meglomaniac whip, gullibly uninformed, people into seething hordes of misdirected violence, one would tend to agree with Paul's letter to the Romans (3:10-18 ESV) ~ As it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” “Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive.” “The venom of asps is under their lips.” “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
Yes, the world seems to be mired in a darkness right now. The darkness in question is not a reflection the majority of humanity. The darkness in question is the result of sick selfish people obtaining more than their fair share of power. We fell asleep at the proverbial wheel & let it happen. Yet, last November we rallied back and corrected many of our mistakes.
- and love.
