A world misled

March 6, 2017

And the whole world ran off after the beast. Thumping their feet they demanded, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?” So predictable of a petty people who are drawn by cheap pomp. For the beast had all the trappings of this-worldly glamour: the brute strength and carelessness of a bear’s legs, the roar and animosity of a lion’s mouth, even the borrowed power of the dragon with his “throne and great authority” besides. Last of all, even a fatal wound it had survived. Enough to charm, even astonish a people prone to wander. But that’s all one needs to hypnotize a people that has never cared to be fascinated by the truth. No wonder, where fury should have been for the beast’s deceit, they themselves were at his feet. Quite the mark of today’s people, today’s world gone berserk.
