If I told you I have no idols, and never have had any, most people would no I was lying.
Throughout my life I have had many, my wife among the earliest, followed by children and a proud stubbonish intellectual independance.
Guess what I've discovered I'm ordinary, not just in IQ (105) but in hopes and desires..
Modern idols: possession, comfort, independance, materialism and science have all taken their toll.
The declaration of independance seems to back me up
' the pursuit of happiness'--- is that Christian I wonder?
In their fierce sweeping aside of all traces of Idolatory Isisd destroy historic monumentss.Allah alone must be praised and all else trashed with brutal ruthlessness.
Strangely they trash modern civilisation yet appeal for doctors and engineers, no doubt. they can give reasons.
In the past Christians have mortified the flesh, locked themselves away, indulged in flagelation.
Lets be ordinary and tolerant of our own foibles and those of others.
Time flies.
The moving Finger writes and having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy piety or wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
Nor all thy tears wash out a Word of it.
