Everyday we are told that the planet is being destroyed. From our environment to to the ground beneath our feet. One group claims that we are entirely responsible. Mankind has polluted the planet. The other side claims that’s a bunch of nonsense.
The truth is, the planet began to decay when mankind allowed sin to enter the world. In the beginning, everything was perfect and undefiled. Now the earth groans for the end of days louder than ever before. Judgement is coming to mankind, and by the looks of things, it will be sooner rather than later.
A lot of Americans are very attached to their way of life, form of government, and the concept of “God and Country”. Here are my top 10 reasons why Christians in the United States will be disappointed when Jesus Christ returns.
10. Jesus shows up to rule, unelected by the people.
9. Jesus admits to never stepping foot into a voting booth.
8. Jesus makes laws without a system of checks and balances.
7. Jesus keeps saying he doesn’t know these televangelists.
6. Jesus refuses to endorse the Republican or Democrat party.
5. Jesus seems a little upset about the way we’ve been treating each other.
4. Jesus takes office, claims he’s not subject to term limits.
3. Jesus looks nothing like Kenny Loggins.
2. Jesus pays his taxes after finding some money in the mouth of a fish.
1. It turns out that Jesus has no Visa, is an illegal immigrant.
Without God, worth is a purely subjective value. One could place worth in persecuting another without any wrong doing. Without an authority of worth, there is no absolute worth. Everything would be worthless.
Tonight, I watched Divergent. Let me preface this review with this. I have not read the Divergent book, they’re not my style. So why did I watch the movie, you ask? Because I’m married, that’s why.
Divergent is a story of a young woman who expects to discover her purpose in life, only to discover that she doesn’t fit in anywhere. To me, this sounds a lot like high school. As it turns out, being different is bad. Really bad. Not as bad as the movie, but still. The people call this state “divergent”. People who are divergent are unable to be controlled by the smart people.
Ah, the smart people. The elitist left or right, who know how to better handle things than everyone else. They also know how to use mind control against law enforcement. So they use this mind control technology to attempt to take over the city. But I’m sure you can guess that our leading roles, who are a divergent, stop them.
I’m sure that to a teenager, these events would translate well into their own life events in High School. But to the rest of the world, it would translate well to recent events in Missouri, Turkey, or the Ukraine. But what it’s really like is the Middle East where being anything other than Muslim will end in the death of you and your family. Because, well, you are divergent. You are awake, and you won’t conform.
Are you awake? Are you paying attention to the signs? Jesus is coming back someday soon, and things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.
