Sow the Wind; Reap the Whirlwind

"Can't we all just get along?" This is the catch-phrase of postmodern thought as summarized by the infamous Californian, Rodney King. It says that toleration is the god of this age; since, there are no ultimate truths, so all is relative; thus, there should be little debate on issues because everyone is right.

This is all very interesting, but so what? The what is found in the how of its implementation. Western Civilization extols toleration to such an extent, that all kinds of heresies, grotesque ideas and violent, treasonous thoughts permeate the airwaves. It is not a simple relative toleration, but a toleration based upon absolutists rhetoric that cries out: "All should be accepted; none should be quieted!"

And ideas, especially voiced, have consequences. One cannot speak without affecting someone or something. Christians have known that for centuries--that's why God gave us preachers.

So, it should come as no surprise that one of the leading countries in toleration are killing themselves. England has allowed militant, angry, vocal Muslims by the millions into their country. Their leaders voiced physical jihad on TV and the Brits are surprised that such "freedom of speech" lead to violence!

Now, they are killing the very country that pays their welfare checks.

That's gratitude for you....but, hey, if there is no truth, then gratitude is a meaningless feeling with no moral force. If society should be tolerant of all views, then violence is a valid alternative.

And if we reap the wind of full-blown toleration, then we will reap the whirlwind of hate and destruction.

May God bring a merciful revival and reformation.
