I have been watching the decline of the world for the last 40 years or so and have come to the conclusion that my heavenly Father is the most patient, loving being ever known.
The loudest of His children have purposely cut all ties with Him, preferring to claim their paternity from pigs and monkeys. This effectively proclaims to the world that they are true bastards in the original sense of the word.
They cry and moan and whine about the peace Christians find in their faith, preferring to think of us as "radical" and dangerous. When bad things happen, they cry, "How could a loving God allow this to happen?"

They will not take the credit due to them for removing our loving God from the government, schools and their own lives. When you remove God from the world, things go bad. They wonder why they have everything, but are still miserable. It is because their souls are crying out to the creator of all things. They are still listening to the serpent, proclaiming themselves equal to God.
