* Editor's Commentaries - #90 "Signs of the Times," or merely the latest times?

What's the Question?  Stay 'tuned,' for the editor's answer.

.  What do you make of the confluence of the following "natural" developments: 

  1. drought, prolonged, protracted drought encompassing a massive portion of the United States;
  2. flooding, extreme rainfall and floods devastating large areas of the United States, and areas historically not associated with heavy rainfall;
  3. fires, brush fires and forest fires ravaging large areas of the United States, and with a couple months of fire season yet remaining;
  4. regions ravaged by tornados, hurricanes, wind shear, hail storms....

These are only a few of the types of "natural" signs visited upon the USofA in recent years; these so-called natural events, aka "acts of God," have brought about the loss of multitudes of farms and ranches, due to massive crop failure and the loss of grazing and thus livestock over the past few years?

In addition to the so-called "natural" events which have ravaged this nation have been the "cultural" "societal" developments of rampant perversion of judgment and justice which has typified the United States and its Judicial system for decades; the sexual corruption which has become endemic to American society; the plaque of violence which the perverse judicial system, and all of its enablers have spawned for decades....

Question: could there be a connection between the so-called "natural" events, and the "cultural" "societal" developments?  You understand that absent the God of the Bible there would be no such connection, there would merely be coincidence.    

.  We no longer live in the so-called "dark ages."  We know better than to believe in "religious superstitions"...unless of course those superstitions are just that, in which case we display the greatest reverence for them.

But if we were so "backwards," "ignorant," and "uninformed," as to have a Biblical perspective with regard to developments in the United States over the past half-century in particular, we would recognize and understand that the "natural" and "unnatural" developments in this nation over that span of time are directly, inseparably linked, and we would recognize that the anti-godliness and anti-humaneness which have prevailed in this nation over the past half-century have bled this nation for decades; occasioned the torturous murder of multitudes of children (typically girls), of adolescent girls, of young women, and of younger women; and brought this terribly proud nation to the brink of overflowing destruction.

Of course here in the USofA Today, we are not so backwards as to think such things, so we will continue to ignore God, and rush blindly, ignorantly, optimistically, positively, prosperously, enthusiastically towards the precipice...until the nation is no more.  And then what; those who survive will ask "What happened," "Why did such a thing happen," "How could such a thing happen," "Why us," ????

  Occasionally I think while standing up, walking, or even chewing gum, though I can't say I necessarily do my best thinking while exerting myself in these ways - Editor/Ed.

Boys are so silly, I prefer to do my deep thinking, reflection, ruminating, and meditation, while I am reclining at length in the tub, preferably with several servants to attend to my every whim and need.  [One must be careful to only think in moderation while soaking, though, lest one should turn into a prune!]  Umm, I wonder if those silly hunky stone-age boys are thinking about me?  If they think they can use me like I'm some worthless disposable thing, they've got another thing coming! 

{No, bathing beauty.  If I had a lady like you to think about (but a little less "hard-bodied"), I wouldn't manage to think of anything else.  It is true, God does work in mysterious ways.}

Al's secret to his superior thinking - sitting down.

 Ah yes, now I see the resemblance between Albert Einstein and CBM's Editor, they are both hard-bodied hunks (almost as if chiseled out of stone) and undeniably dreamers.
