Living in Bizarro World

    Bizarro World was created by DC Comics back in the 60s as an inverted parallel reality antithetical to the values of Superman, Lois Lane, truth, justice, and the American way.

    It has evolved.

    Looking at the globe, America, media, most churches, education, entertainment, and, uh, just about everywhere and everyone, it's the Freudian nightmare of inverted beliefs and behaviors being "reimagined" as normal and previously normal beliefs and behaviors being scorned.

    Example.

    Frightfully, eerily, sadly, and ominously, Europe is reincarnating Germany of the 30s.

    Bizarro World for real has incarnated itself in a political correctness that finds everything/everyone offensive that/who resists and rebels against beliefs and behaviors once discerned as, uh, bizarre.

    Example.

    A religion that, at minimum, degrades women and children and gays - It is a sick man's dream religion! - is not challenged by even liberated women in Europe and America because, uh, sigh, geez, gulp, uh,...uh,...uh,...I really don't know. 

    Example.

    People can get up in church meetings and totally diss Jesus by the book and the invitational, inclusive, welcoming, and agape ethics that He patterned and prescribed for harmony with God and each other and the remnanters who challenge 'em are considered offensive; meaning it's O.K. to offend Jesus by the book but not...

    We are living in Bizarro World, America, and...

@#$%

    I may be wrong; but I think there are three ways to respond to Bizarro World, America, and...

    Run away.

    Embrace.

    Confront.

@#$%

    I have chosen to confront Bizarro World.

    I may be wrong; but I think that's what Jesus would do.

    Uh, that's what Jesus did.

This world is changing so fast it`s hard to keep up with it.
Christians being Murdered every where. It`s so sad. And we live in such a Beautiful country. People just keep trying to destroy it. Some day we won`t have to worry about it. Jesus will come and take us home.

Walton,

I am totally with you, brother, in anticipating His glorious return to receive His unto Himself. Yes, unfortunately, people keep trying to destroy America; as they increasingly assault our spiritual fabric founded in Holy Scripture. I am stunned to increasing dependence upon the Lord in a Matthew 5:3 kinda way as I watch our government, media, education, entertainment, and too many churches cave under the pressures of the evil one through its accomplices. Nothing seems to shake America out of its spiritual slumber these days. 9/11 didn't do it. ISIS isn't doing it. Instead, we hear the lies of those following their father who lies, lies, and lies some more to keep us from the truth that liberates. This causes me to praise Him even more for the gift of Jesus!
