Dr. Wall ponders some of the lies propagated in society at large and finds them coming up lacking.
Ruin and misery mark their ways and the way of peace they do not know.
Romans 3: 16-17
I’ve been thinking lately about how many lies are promoted in society that people believe and accept and even take for granted and that these lies lead to devastation, heartache, ruin and despair. Even for me to call these sacred cows into question could be reason for others to castigate me. We live in a cruel world that promotes only those who believe the popular cultural party line.
Lord, protect me from society’s lies and guard my heart with your Truth.
Here’s a few of the lies that I’ve thought about in recent days:
No one created the world and the heavens. Everything evolved.
There was no world-wide flood. Don’t ask too many questions about those fish fossils on the top of the Rocky Mountains. If there was a world-wide flood that would make the Bible true. Praise be to Nobody that we don’t have a God to answer to.
There is no hand guiding the universe. There is no purpose. There is no one to pray to. No one cares about you, but you. Nobody. But prayer is very helpful psychologically. Better yet, just meditate. Since there’s no one to pray to, just meditate on whatever. Mind numbing nothingness. That’s the ticket.
Having sex with many people is the way to go. Marriage is boring. Sex with just one person is a prison. Spread your seed to the wind. Sex has no purpose except to make you feel good. You have a right to feel good as often and with however many people you want.
Abortion is not killing babies. Embryos are not babies. Babies are not people. People are not people. Nothing is what it seems.
If you are unhappy keep divorcing until you find the right one. Divorce doesn’t hurt kids. I just need to be happy. Screw the kids. Screw commitment. Screw faithfulness and perseverance. Selfishness is the new mantra. Pray to yourself. Better yet, meditate to yourself. Oh, unholy self, spread they seed to the wind. Better yet, just put it in the sewer. Nothing symbolic here at all.
Live for the moment. This is what we do. Sex with children can teach them about their bodies.
Sharing your spouse with others sexually can improve your marital sex life.
Affairs are fine as long as everything is consensual. Just don’t ask your kids if the horror they think at your consensual choice to sleep with someone other than mom or dad is consensual. Scold them for persecuting you and being judgmental. You have a right to be happy. Morality be damned, except the morality that there is no morality.
Homosexuality is determined. If you have same-sex thoughts you cannot change. To think so is to be homophobic and judgmental. Accept who you are. Embrace putting your life-giving member into the channel of death. You have no choice. Accept your fate. Act on your impulses. There is no temptation given to man. There is no God. There is no temptation because there is no morality. Whatever you feel, do. Who cares if your feelings destroy families or your relationships or cause your soul to burn with a desire that can never be fulfilled? There is only delight in fulfilling of your destiny to deny self-control and the bearing of children through your loins and the giving of life and the worship of the Life-Giver. The phallic is the new god. Mount in wherever you want. Better yet, meditate on it. See your soul shrivel up and die. Who cares!!? We’ll make god in our image.
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Choose you this day whom ye will serve; As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
