"I am not perfect, I am human". How many times have we heard that statement? As if a confession is being made for not being perfect. But where does this concept of perfection come from? How do we know we are flawed? Our conscience reveals to us that which is right and that which is wrong, but where does this awareness come from? "Well, from God", one might say. But where does the concept of the existence of a supreme being come from? The atheist believes there is no God and still can distinguish right from wrong, as does the evolutionist. When you think about it if we evolved from lower forms of life why do we believe in a Supreme Being? Eliminate the idea of the existence of a Divine and we can eliminate many forms of guilt. No restraints, no one to answer to, I like that idea, we can create an "utopia", free to do anything we want, fulfill our lusts, with no sense of guilt. Everyone can now live for themselves, be their own "god", be the master of their own destiny, finally free to be human. Yeah, sounds great, we can still keep our church buildings but just keep God out of them. It's about time we repent, that is to turn from God and turn to ourselves. This does not mean we stop loving others, rather, we love ourselves first. Aren't we entitled to be human? We can be the "me first" generation where everyone is special resulting in no one being special. And for those who need religion to achieve their selfish goals, we can create a religion that serves self. The "good news" for some is this process is now in implemented. We are not heading towards a post -Christian America, we are living at present in a post-Christian America, where being human is the supreme goal. Happy July 4th.
