Amen, amen, Miss Marge!
The trouble with our culture is that positive thinking has become a sort of leading principle to support the heresy of immantentistic thinking. 'Nice' becomes a virtue and a norm of social correctness to a perverse degree, where values are to be respected but OVER truth and virtue and God's rights. And what is to keep people from having values that are self-directed even in the guise of peace? Truth divides and true peace is that same truth, who is Jesus. Likewise, the highest good is not what man can do for another man, but God Himself. Truth does not alter because God does not alter.
Everyone discusses what they deserve but so few talk about God's rights. And if you do dare to do so, people will harangue you and say you are not nice or are too deep. Please.
