Some human on the TV was claiming that “meatless meat” vegan hamburgers are a plot by “Lucifarians”, as he called them, to “change your DNA so that you are no longer human and Jesus cannot save you.”
Humans! We only have one rock. Even if a few of us make it to the stars, the vast masses of us will never escape this rock, nor each other. We sink or swim together. We face at least half a dozen existential threats these days. Is this really a good time to be messing with people’s heads about something as harmless as vegan hamburgers? Can’t that TV preacher make enough money some honest way?
I think it must be greed and only greed that drives him to make up scary stories to get donations. It is so sad to realize so many people will believe him, will send him money. It is so sad to know that his kind of behavior pays off, and pays off big.
“The Truth goes begging”, Luther said, “While sin has ample wages.”
I know now we are headed for extinction. It might take ten thousand years — but we will go extinct. And in evolutionary terms, we will go in the blink of an eye. This TV preacher — he has convinced me we are going extinct.
It is just before dawn. I have only just discovered the video of the preacher. I am shocked. In an hour, I hope to be myself again. I hope to be more optimistic than I am at the moment. In fact, I am sure I will bounce back — no one can stay as far down as that preacher has knocked me. I will bounce back.
I hope you have a beautiful and blessed day.
