Changing Perspective

Guilty or Grateful?

I think all this comes back to the difference between guilt and gratitude. There is a segment of our society who are white and privileged and they feel guilty about it. This is one thing for a 12 year old girl, and another thing altogether for a mature adult. This segment of our society is extremely influential. The reason this is a problem is that these people don’t know God, and therefore they can’t be grateful for who they are and what they have. They blame themselves for the intractable social problems they see because they are unable to blame sin.

None of this would be such a big deal if they didn’t project their own guilt feelings onto the rest of us. They see us as a guilty society and then they set out to solve man’s problems without any help from God. And they want to drag the rest of us along with them.

They are the secular privileged class in America, the class that some people mistakenly call liberal. They aren’t really liberal. They are merely guilt ridden. They are guilt ridden because they are unable to feel grateful.
