A free floating commentary on culture, politics, economics, and religion based on a passionate commitment to the truth and a desire graciously to refute that which is contrary to it….
"He must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it."
--Titus 1:9, Revised Standard Version

The cynic is also correct about human nature and human capacity. The extraordinary euphoria which has surrounded the new Federal Government will not last. The euphoria is a foolish utopianism. Even now, however, hard decisions are being taken which will offend people; mistakes are being made; inadequacies of administration and leadership will become apparent. We will have the unedifying spectacle of those who spoke up most hopefully being the greatest critics of a government which is merely human after all. The greatest foolishness of modern political philosophies of left or right is belief in the innate goodness of human beings and the possibility of the kingdom of God on earth.
And yet a cynical society is a diseased society. We cannot live like that. We must have our hopes. Cynicism corrupts all it touches and is particularly bad for young people.
That is why the gospel has such power to help us live well here and now. It assumes human sinfulness. It agrees that we cannot build the kingdom of God on earth by the political process or social engineering. It is clear-eyed about our weaknesses. But at the same time it shows us a Lord who is above all time and yet was born in time. It shows us a Lord whose promises may be absolutely relied upon. It shows us a Lord who will never forsake us, even to the point of death and then through it. It shows us a Lord who transcends our lives here and promises fulfilment in the age to come. It shows us a Lord who is our good and true hope.
Read it all.
