Don't Walk to the Wrong Drumbeat

The Drumbeat

In truth, and in direct opposition to the drumbeat, each human being must be accorded his or her natural rights, individual sovereignty, and self responsibility to be in harmony with human nature. Each of us must have the freedom to succeed or to fail. Western culture, culminating in the great American experiment, has been perverted. Due to these perversions, many failures have already occurred, which have then, ironically, been used to justify further perversions of the same sort as those which caused the problems to begin with.

This is an excellent piece. I highly recommend it, and it's exactly what I see going on around us.

In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.--Jesus, in John 16:33

You are of God, little children, and you have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

They are of the world, therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them.

We are of God. He who knows God hears us. The one who is not of God does not hear us. From this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
--1 John 4:4-6
