The only thing making life bearable on this cockeyed planet is the assurance that "I know that my Reedemer liveth." Without that, life would be insufferable.
Maybe that's why the Bad People running the world's governments are so darn cranky. They have no hope. Without hope, life is about just one thing: go for the gusto.
We think the Deep State make our lives Hell on Earth??? Pffffftttt. Their lives are much worse...just gilded.
They may Cremate Care all day long, but they can never quite succeed in performing a complete conscience-ectomy. Everything they do, they do with the nagging knowledge of wrongdoing.
Yet very few come to repentance. That would require admitting they did wrong anda narcissist can never do that. So they double-down. Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!
Just imagine what it must be like for them to have no motivation to be good, no way to wash away their sins, no balm for their consciences, no hope of meeting their deceased loved ones again, no faith in a loving God, no one to cry out to in moments of distress. You have to admire their sticktoitiveness. Personally, I don't know how they keep on a-going.
And yet, it's a funny thing about atheists like Anthony Bourdain. The more they claim not to believe in God, the more they talk about Him. Have you ever noticed that about atheists? I always get the most tremendous bang out of it.
For me, one of the most compelling proofs of Jesus' Resurrection comes from the Gospels' rather embarrassing admission that women were the first to see Him after His Resurrection.
In that era, women were even allowed to give evidence in a court of law so it was egg-on-the-disciples'-faces for women to be the first witnesses to the Resurrection.
If they'd wanted to prove a fiction, they couldn't have done worse...unless they were just telling the truth.
And then we have this gem, possibly the most quoted quote from Mere Christianity by my favorite author, C. S. Lewis:
Light, Love and Laughter
Horrific and ridiculous. No wonder they hate us. Their power depends on us taking them seriously...and they're losing that power.
Their pomposity can't stand to be laughed at, like Rabadash in Lewis' The Horse and His Boy, nor pitied and we're sorely tempted to do both.
Happy Easter, Patriots!
I'm a big believer in "leave 'em laughing" and I can't think of a better way to tickle your funny bone than with this brilliant article from the Babylon Bee.
Happy Easter, Patriots!
