2Pe 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 
2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 
2Pe 3:5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 
2Pe 3:6  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 
2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 

 In 1944 and '45 C.S. Lewis' "The Great Divorce" began to appear in an Anglican 

newspaper called The Guardian. It was an allegorical tale summarizing the impassible gulf that lay between heaven and hell, truth and falsehood. What can be done for those who cannot understand the difference between Islam or Christianity, boys 

and girls?

     It is not simply that Truth and The Lie are two parallel lines that never meet, but that one will ultimately disappear, that is was only a shadow of the true, what was left over when the Truth was gone. It is, paradoxically, the Rousseauian maxim that "civilization is all wrong" echoed and resolved eternally by the Supreme Power. Civilization is not the problem, but Man, who, like Sisyphus, eternally tries to reinvent human civilization without the rule of God. But Rousseau was wrong. It was not civilization that made Man wrong - but Man who made civilization wrong. It is Man who gives civilization the smell it cannot shed. The problem is not poverty, for wealth has only turned the marathon for human fulfillment into a fruitless sprint. With each succeeding pleasure, like the jazz singer Peggy Lee, we cry "Is that all there is?" Man without God will remain barren and bitter until he is no more.

     The Communists ought to have learned by now that money is not the answer to civilization's woes. A wealthy, technologically advanced sinner is infinitely more dangerous than a poor, primitive one. As "civilization" progresses (?) then, the world becomes more dangerous, with the tools that torture and annihilate 

men continuously refined by the mad creature who rages wildly across the deck of civilization's sinking ship.
