We need to realign ourselves with Godly authoritative figures and recognize the importance of not repeating the idiocies of... ourselves. I have yet to read of a Muslim culture being destroyed, yet then again, it seems that in general they are quite capable of self-judgement and self-discipline. A good number of 'cultures' that seems to have been over-taken and destroyed have been Christian-based. Perhaps 'we' as Christians lack the ability to go beyond our compassionate understanding toward one another's faults and flaws into actually delivering one another from such... Some of us don't ever seem to even acquire a basic understanding let alone the ability to decipher what another needs help in being delivered from, which is most usually none other than themselves. Perhaps the Powers that Be understand all to well that Divine Illusion is completely necessary, but for who and what purpose? It may not at all be because 'we' are our own worst enemies, it may be because 'we' are expected to excel in areas that are being resisted by the perfectionists among us. Just my current observation, does anyone else have one?
