    Daily Noodlings...

    I've never cared for intrusive questions on social media sites, but I hate leaving blanks...so I answered "Where do you live?" with Elysium and "Occupation" with field worker.

    Under "languages" I wrote conversational English.

On the one hand it seems fair, where the education is mostly aimed at that particular employment...on the other hand it saddens me that we've turned universities into the equivalent of intellectual trade schools when the point was much broader (and better for the country as per the citizens and leaders it produced) at inception.

    No, I'm not....If the possession of wealth itself was irreconcilable with God's grace or will then God would not award wealth to anyone. Yet he does and more than once. So the point cannot be about wealth, but about the heart that possesses it and what possesses that heart.

    Not how it went with me. As for the need in men for a savior, I'd say that any serious reflection on our nature in relation to God's should lead to the conclusion. Self perfection isn't in line with who and what we are.

    Which is why I see the literal take of the OT scripture as the foundation for such Dictatorships to gain rule over so many mentally.
    I don't see Christ as a dictator or his yoke as a burden.

    And they'd be justifiably outraged were they animal lovers and someone produced then killed a unicorn.

    The rampant, demanding, invasive, pervasive tentacles of political correctness has already redefined what is permitted in thought, word and deed by American citizens.
    You know how much I hate the term PC, which too often seems to me an excuse for uttering what a decent upbringing would otherwise silence while attempting to wrap it in the clothes of public virtue...that said, I suppose it's always been that way. If you lived in one day you'd be careful who you spoke to about economic inequity for fear of being labeled a communist or a radical. Same with racial equity and on and on. There's always a guy pushing new ideas and expanding freedoms and there's always another clutching a handbasket and yelling at him to get out of the yard as though it belongs to him.

    ...vices are widespread.
    ...People we differ with have the same right to their conscience that we do. I don't count that a weakness and I suspect any people who repress ideas aren't protecting ideas worth very much. As for the rest, again, freedom is a messy business and it's up to the individual to root out and contextualize.
