A forced smile, a blank stare with dead eyes, a response to a question that honestly, doesn't make any sense at all. This is what I get sometimes when I have a conversation with empty people these days. If the subject isn't makeup or the Kardashians, I might as well be speaking Vulcan. (For those of you who are unfamiliar, this is the language that Spock spoke on Star Trek.)
I don't know if it is due to information overload that some people refuse to make an effort to consistently analyze the world around them or did our educational system fail? I know first hand that teachers do try but disengaged parents undo all the school's hard work on children as of late. It is such a shame that the wisdom of the people from past generation is on its way to extinction.
Perhaps it is the sign of the times, when biblical prophesies are now reality. Everywhere I look I see that the Book of Revelation is at hand. No one trust anyone anymore. Trust is a fictional ideal, integrity is a figment of the imagination and the dying breed of humanity is manifesting itself. Good people are the gerbils on a wheel exerting that much effort to keep from reacting in a way that is not acceptable from the provocation of politically correct demands of society.
Indeed, without sounding too much like gloom and doom, we have reached the age of gloom and doom, whether we look at life positively or not.
Among these chaotic times though, there is still that hope. The hope in Jesus Christ. The Christ who will wreak havoc on this planet in one blink of an eye, unannounced, to punish those who arrogantly blaspheme and mock His name and the sacrifice of His Life! Oh how I long for that day to come and look forward to my own salvation, not so much to see unrepentants suffer but to see that all of these toil and turmoil today is not for naught because Jesus Christ will save us.
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
