In response to an eloquent, heartfelt, and lengthy view of the current world condition by Dan Rather:
Mr. Rather quotes Martin Luther King, Jr. But he does not give us the man’s full vision nor it’s foundation as evidenced through his life. If we want to follow a leader, let us first always know all there is to know about that person, just as we should never fan the flames of one side of an argument without giving full weight to the other side.
Mr. Rather leaves out the most important and glaring loss which Martin Luther King, Jr. knew very well as his moral standard and whom he loved and served: God.
Dr. King’s God is my God.
God is the Creator who IS love and who IS order and balance. It is God who taught through actions respect and dignity for all people by sending his only Son among us. It is he who showed us what selflessness looked like.
For decades the Creator is being systematically removed from society’s eye. When mankind, the created, is only permitted to see mankind, can we expect anything other than self-led chaos to remain?
All society will implode without the recognition of God at its center. This is no surprise; history has proven so.
