"So," they say, "nobody's perfect!"
But the Vinedresser won't buy that.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

What are my odds of finding these three happy souls demonstrating for disarmament on the corner of Chicago’s South Federal and West 54th streets? After dark. On a Friday night.

Simple answer: ZERO, because I wouldn’t be there!

Or, what are the odds of these peacenicks removing all virus and malware protection from their Internet-connected computers? That too is most assuredly zero, because, as naive as they are, they know the Internet is a dangerous place to be stupid.

That begs the question: With the Internet simply reflecting humanity’s predatory nature, how can these good folks be cyber-smart while remaining socially stupid? Perhaps they’ve been spared the ordeal of actually meeting a two-legged predator. As Detective Monk would say, “It’s a jungle out there.”

I love peace more than most, but I also know that true peace in this world can be found only by trusting the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ. And that’s the peace that defies human understanding. If only those three—and millions more like them—would realize that simplistic, human answers can never solve the eternal, spiritual problem. It’s the “S” word that such humanists shudder to utter: Sin.
