It used to be that government was established to protect our pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. Now we seem to expect government to be our source for life, liberty and happiness.
It used to be that religion was guidance for how we lived, but now, how we live shapes the contours of our religion. We place ourselves at the center and mold God around us so He will fit, instead of letting Him fill us from within and shape us into His image.
There you go. A few sparks just to see if I can start a fire.
