Choosing Sides in the Age of Decision

Harper and Hamas-- Heaven and Hell-- Happiness under God and harried Humanists under government-- Haven of protection for life (border patrol and military measures) and Horror of terrorism and death-- Hebrew descendents and Holocaust denying Hitleresque hostility. Contrast. Black and white. Choice.

The sides are lining up; make no mistake. Do we want to get it right? Or do we just want to feel good? Should the pastor of Elm Creek First Christian Church open Nebraska’s senate with a prayer for the nation’s righteousness, honoring God or would politicians prefer the deception of eternal earthly bliss. You gotta read it to believe it! Ah yes, the therapeutic Christianity! An oxymoron to be sure. Christianity is only therapeutic in strict obedience to God’s commands. The feel good religious left—the religion of the soft persuasion—cannot truly be identified as Christian at all! The tolerance for sin and oppression is well on its way to creating the opposite of its stated intent (a Quinn Law) by taking people down the road to insanity, not the peaceful, loving utopia of a liberal’s dreams. Convictions have vaporized and the pro-choicers’ inability to choose between right and wrong, good and evil, is gushing into the sewer pits of the human mind.

Considering psychology as a major? The demand is rising but expect to be paid by the government, perhaps helping the infirm and unstable to die for the cause of social cleansing. Am I using scare tactics? Where is the country that still honors God? We are catching glimpses of what godless men, even men under a false god, are capable of. Let’s see. Hamas (and the new kid, Iran) says death to Jews (and, um, USA). Humanist law says death to the unwanted, the defenseless. (nothing new to world history but pretty darn new here!) Terrorists, death to America and to the West. So what’s the bottom line? Hell that says eternal torment for all who didn’t choose the Master. Some have actually chosen Satan. Many just don’t have the humility and chutzpah to choose anything at all.

In a world such as this, is there any room for muddled, aimless impotence or apathetic, head-in-the-ground mollification? I’ve been wanting to congratulate Canada! And God help the Palestinians now! Time will tell how “extreme” Stephen Harper is. He has his eye on defense spending increase and tax cuts, so the papers say. We may never see how extreme Hamas is (hat tip: our prickly MSM and our fine establishments for higher education) until it is too late.

Peggy Noonan, in an interview with Bill Steigerwald, Pittsburgh Trib today, concludes when confronted with the idea of Bush being a “waffling, weaselly kind of politician”…..”He sure is not.”
“Look, America stands for freedom,” she continues, “and an American president stands for freedom. That having been said, this world is a strange old place these days and sometimes I want him to cool it with the emotional rhetoric and get steely-eyed about where we are…what we need to do.” Oh yea. There dare be a massive gap between histrionics and heroics! No matter. The sides are lining up, whether you pick one or not.

“Israel’s watchmen are blind, they all lack knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they cannot bark; they lie around and dream, they love to sleep.

They are dogs with mighty appetites; they never have enough. They are shepherds who lack understanding; they all turn to their own way, each seeks his own gain.” ~ISAIAH 56:10-11
