THE NEWS is enough to drive you into a deep blue funk: the signing of the hate crimes bill; the spread of H1N1; banksters betting on you to lose your house and then die quickly; Russia simulating a nuclear attack on Poland; and a UN nuclear expert doing a mysterious 17-floor death plunge in Vienna.
Meanwhile, our minds have been soaking in a pop culture soup of godless communitarianism since the days of H.G. Wells, who popularized the idea that mankind must unite under a global government or die.
And if that isn’t enough, cattle in Georgia are being mutilated with surgical precision.
Instead of fixating on these things, which Christ told us to expect, take a break and remember the words of Paul:
[W]hatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Don’t ignore the signs, just remember that they mean Christ’s return is a day closer.
