It’s a fact that there has never been a time in the history of the world when news gets out and gets spread faster than it does today, for all the obvious reasons you already know. Nowadays, we should add this consideration to the way we think about any national and international events.
More people know more about what’s going on around them than ever before (and, on the other side, there are probably more people knowing LESS about anything than every before, as well).
Unfortunately, thanks to the efforts of leftists who refuse to allow real values, morals, and politeness to be taught in public schools, we are faced with a nation of government-educated people who have no concept of Right or Wrong (as it applies to others), a simplistic belief in the leftist Holy Grail of “fairness,” of decency or degeneracy, or of truth and falsehood, who believe that they are entitled to the fruits of the labor of others because they have been taught that they are, regardless of the truth.
Without God in our daily life, it becomes just existence. With no morality, least of all, the kind called for in the Ten Commandments, we become a nation of undisciplined and selfish pleasure-seekers, people who can’t be bothered with kindness or charity, who believe that signing up for welfare or grant handouts of whatever kind can be a career choice. The apparent main focus of the daily life of a young person is “connecting,” a new word for finding a sexual partner for the night. Unborn babies are slaughtered because of their inconvenient existence, their body parts removed while their hearts still beat and sold off to the highest bidders, and these things are called part of “life.”
In such an environment, it is easy for ignorant people to be led astray by plausible liars. Unaware because they are taught so, that there is REAL TRUTH, the victims of these plausible liars fall for any lies, and find their lives losing meaning by the day, but thinking that being “cool” or “hip” will fix all that. Nothing is important but their individual comfort.
Unfortunately, this also means that when a smooth-talking liar comes along, he will be able to convince large numbers to follow him. The current trend of referring to President Barack Hussein Obama as “The One,” or “messiah,” are simply symptoms of the unknown hunger in the hearts of sheep without a shepherd, whose souls long for the REAL Messiah, but who know Him not. But most of them have already thrown out the REAL Messiah, and have chosen to follow the fake.
Empty promises are simply that: empty. It’s not difficult to promise anything. The difficulty lies in keeping those promises. Unfortunately, the people who have been lied to still retain enough understanding to believe that someone who promises us something is going to keep the promise, while the liars just add lie to lie without the slightest moral qualm.
A false messiah promises “hope” and “change,” and more of the same. For a lot of those who believe the change they hope for will be that they will be suddenly thrust into the ascendancy above others, placed into positions of power and privelege. They hope the change will mean no more debt or work for them. They believe they will become the elite, while those whom they blamed for their problems will suddenly become the “underclass,” to be treated with disdain and contempt. Will these changes materialize? Unfortunately, even a pale version will not only not be probable, but not possible this side of the grave.
Many times throughout history people have tried to pass themselves off as the hope of their nations, or the long-awaited One who would change the world for the better and bring the Utopian completion of all mundane life. But, unfortunately, these charlatans have presented themselves to people who have stopped believing in the REAL Messiah, whose Return the real world still awaits. If the people are tired enough of waiting, they will settle for a plausible substitute to acclaim; one who promises “hope,” and “change.”
