A Short, Simple Question…

Question MarkSome Fox News programs tonight zoomed in on President Obama’a now failed promises that Obamacare patients would absolutely be able to keep their original plans and doctors. Fox replayed several film clips of the President saying those things. He left no room for doubt. But now, Fox points out, we know that those things are untrue. And most telling, Fox showed from documents that the President knew that they were untrue when he stated them on national television.

That illustrates the new, post-Christian morality; there is no rigid right and wrong; there is only what is good in the circumstances. That, of course, you decide for yourself, as the President obviously decided when he was selling Obamacare to the public. That version of morals seems to me, to boil down to: “Do whatever you think will get you what you want.”

My simple, little question: When our government operates on that basis, how do we ever trust anybody?

    Short answer: we can’t and don’t

    Somewhat longer answer: On this basis we’re basically doomed.

    The book of Judges that follows the Biblical narrative of complete victory in the Promised Land opens and closes with these close paraphrased words: “In those days there was no king and the people did that which was right in their own eyes.” This led to cycles of defeat and an occassional victory with a strong leader.

    Our media noted a sea change with the last election in which a majority want the government to solve their problems created by themselves and they don’t want to pay for it with their sweat equity or actual funds. The attitude is “There is no God, so do what you want now. If something inconvenient occurs get rid of it. ”

    Morality without a God is based on the false idea that people are “basically good” and will treat others as they would want others to treat them. Instead we redefine bad things to be what others are doing, never ourselves.

    Despite all of the evidence from USSR, China, Muslim countries, Buddhist countries, Greece, Spain, Britain, Canada and the US of no ability to sustain “free” benefits people still believe government leveled outcomes. The young and restless continue with the myth that all is well because the government said so. Back to the texting.
