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.
My Blog Post
I am not a blogger, though I am known to read them occasionally. I often find the comment section more revealing than the story. But I could not help respond to a conversation about aliens coming to save us. This is my single blog post:
What unbelievable irony . . humans desperately seeking life outside of earth, longing for "extraterrestrial" beings of higher intelligence and good will to bring humans unfathomable technological advances, eternal life, and the ushering in of a golden age of love, peace and understanding on earth. The precursor of Man's next evolutionary step walked out of a grave by His own power 2000 years ago, and promised all who believed in Him would enter the golden age to come when He said:
"But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand (John 10:26-28)
How will our post-modern culture supply truth when it is the single object forbidden at the outset? As C.S. Lewis said, you can't go on seeing through everything, for to see through everything is" to see nothing". In 1984's "The Neverending Story", the greatest horror was "the Nothing", the nameless devourer of Fantasia, slowly and inexorably hurling all into the abyss of unbelief. Until Man finds that Truth exists he will continue, like Karl Marx, to descend, "howling gigantic curses" toward all that is true, seeking revenge like Johnny Ringo, for "being born". This glorious, terrifying Truth is destined to sweep away all that the godless hold dear, and place the foolish, the weak and the despised as monarchs over the ruins of Man's "New" World Order. . .
"Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have" (Luke 8:18).
Again . . does this sound like Socialism?
