Nation of fools 

are we — wise in our own eyes, leaning on our own understanding, confident-we-know-what’s-best, imagining ourselves competent to judge others and ourselves, and therefore able to govern ourselves and others in the world, without dependency on the CreatorSustainer of the Universe.  There is no humility in our land, outside the Church, or inside, because we are all wise in our own eyes, lean on our own understanding, judge everyone and everything, and see nothing wrong with it.  We Americans — like all humans, have lived with this independent-mindset for so long that independency/pride/self-reliance/worldliness seems normal/natural to us, in the USA, and in other nations around the world.  We who claim to follow Jesus, but follow ourselves, don’t even see the problem, and therefore do not confess this sin, this control-addiction, so we live in unconfessed sin/idolatry.  The blind cannot lead the blind.  We are doomed to experience more of the same in our nation, and around the world, without a global outpouring of God’s Spirit in our day among Christians.  We Christians — not others, are the weakest links, the ones most needy of transformation by God’s Spirit.

I LOVE spectating,

because that's when I'm the happiest -- curious/expectant to see what Jesus does NEXT in me, others, circumstances. Peaceful. Content. Healthy-indifference to outcomes. I HATE being a gladiator on
