We live in a time when half the nation is living on subsidy of some sort. None is willing to let that go, so they perpetuate the fiction that some things are free and they deserve the subsidy they receive. Recently a teacher denied that the dictionary was an authority on the meaning of words! She said she was probably smarter than the dictionary! Over forty years ago I met a girl who didn’t believe in the dictionary and said so, quite vehemently! And I wondered how she could correctly understand anything! Or believe anything she had to say! We parted ways in short order. When I heard the story, I wondered if she had become this teacher.
Our nation is sick because the people in it are sick. It is sick to think you can decide the meaning of the words you use! It is sick to deny objective truth! We claim to love freedom and yet look around and see something we disagree with and say, “There ought to be a LAW!!” Politicians are more than happy to oblige us! We live under hundreds of thousands of laws and regulations. Many are contradictory in that obeying one puts us in violation of another.
The Israelites demanded a king. God told them what to expect but they wanted one anyway. Why? I submit that it was so they could point to him and say its his fault. We were just being obedient subjects. Well, why couldn’t they just be obedient subjects of God? Because they loved the lie! What lie? The lie that man can govern his own affairs and doesn’t NEED God! We don’t need objective truth. We can define truth for ourselves! That is the lie and has been since Eden.
That is the inconvenient truth!
