In trying to ascertain what is wrong with the world two words quickly come to mind.
There it is, this strange yet direct connection with consumerism. We all love value days at our favorite store. There are two-for-one values and Saturday Night Special values, Going Out of Business values and Value Days. True Value Hardware was really onto something when they went to the moral high ground by modifying value with true. Pure genius! Let's face it, we are fatally attracted to Valpak in our mailbox.
Every time I see or hear the word value I cringe.
NEWS FLASH...this just in from the Drudge Report, no kidding.
King Evolution (as opposed to progress or development) wields much the same effect. He hides in the shadow because he fears the light of day. He sucks the life out of any argument when he is revealed as a trump card. He challenges all that is sacred to knock him of of the hill where he is enthroned by pseudo-science. He has conquered all domains from his humble biological birth. He challenges the core identity of every human being. He races ahead in uncharted directions without love or regard.
Queen Value and King Evolution reek with with the stench of utilitarianism.
And now there is a composite term making the rounds, valuevolution
The effects of valuevolution:
Mass confusion in society...
|Neutral Value Vortex|
Return to the Garden of Eden in the Book of Genesis....
the first sales pitch?
the value of just one bite.
Sincerely yours in Jesus and Mary,
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God
Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!
