What was once God's wisdom is now man's inept logic. Where truth once prevailed, there is now only confusion and licentiousness as chaos becomes the new emperor. Where has the child gone, the innocence in each of us, who longs for love, truth, and righteousness? You relativist(if any of you are of that mind), present to me the child who does not initially retreat from violence, hatred and abuse. Show me the loving wives and children who are not devastated or estranged by extramarital affairs and divorce. Show me the stable adult --who was without parental love. Show me the rapist, the murderer and the vengeful who we truly adore. Will we really harbor the thief, the fraudulent, the liar--in good conscience? Is it truly acceptable to be spat on, cursed at, or physically beaten? Are we quite sure that moral absolutes no longer exist? Will we promote alcoholism and drug addiction over independence from the same? Do we honor the mass murderer, the executioner of life, over the humanitarian? Is it really death and disease that we pursue rather than life and health? Will we elevate the self-seeker over the philanthropist? In teaching our children, should we encourage evil behavior, pride, fighting, mockery, hypocrisy, lack of mercy/compassion, destruction of property, ingratitude, boasting, disobedience, cruelty to animals, fits of rage, discord, envy, selfish ambition, lying, stealing, cheating, murder, rape or incest? Of course not! And neither does God. After all is said and done, do we really enjoy compromising truth and justice--for any reason? Then why do we continue to do so? Shall we continue to bomb the innocent, rape the unsuspecting, deceive our children, be unfair to our neighbors or not protect the defenseless? Would you choose to do nothing in the event someone were raping your wife, your mother, or your sister? Would you nonchalantly pass by a lost, lonely, crying or starving child? Would you beat the elderly into submission? Would you help give rise to Nazi Germany (again) by idly watching the massacre of millions of our Jewish brothers and sisters? Then who and where are the self-seeking or insane that proclaim moral absolutes no longer exist? Who else is responsible for the carnage that has arrived? Again, only the immorally-educated, the hedonist, or the insane would make such a claim. Yes, there are "absolutes"--and they are God's. If this were not true, that a standard above man does exist, then our hearts would not cry out for justice in the midst of subjective, totally fallen "Man."
