I used to have a body. You used to have one, too. Sadly, they’re gone.
“But, wait!” you say, “I’m touching my leg, right now. My body’s right here!” Tsk, tsk, you poor, uneducated soul …. err, I mean, person. You obviously haven’t kept up with the times. You don’t have a body; you are that body.
You see, to say ‘you have a body’ separates you from it. If you’re not your body, that means you are a soul (or a spirit) and THAT means there’s a “world” besides this one … and that implies there is a God.
And we can’t have that in modern-day America!
In the old days, like pre-1970, we used to bury John Jones’ body in his grave. TODAY we put John Jones, himself, in that grave. And that’s the end of him. There’s no soul, no spirit, no afterlife, because today, our country (or society) is godless. The atheists have won.
The reporter used-to-say, “John Jones’ body was laid to rest here, a few hours ago….” Today, that reporter says, “John Jones was laid to rest here, a few hours ago….” (It’s just such a report, a few minutes ago, that inspired this posting.)
Listen to the news–with that thought in mind–and witness, for yourself, how we’ve become an atheist nation, while we Christians slept. It’s been so quietly slipped in, I wonder if you even noticed.
If you ever get the feeling that God has abandoned our country … maybe that’s why. We’ve certainly abandoned Him as a nation.
(Maybe a Billy Graham-type preacher will pick up this thought, and push it, and turn us around. I’ll not hold my breath….)
