A Life Of Illusion

Reminded:

What Satan put into the heads of our remote ancestors was the idea that they could ‘be like gods’—could set up on their own as if they had created themselves—be their own masters—invent some sort of happiness for themselves outside God, apart from God. And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history—money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery—the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing. — C.S. Lewis from Mere Christianity

Thoughts On Life And Ferguson

Thinking: You “judge” men one at a time. Not in groups. But by what they do in this life. Not by what their parents did, where they came from, what color they are, or how rich, or how poor they might be. But if we judge men through the stained lens of history, then in a not so small way we perpetuate that history.. giving it life today, and for countless tomorrows.
