I still hope we do, of course. But has Saddam killed 40 million babies?
A world in which our present culture has *nothing* on earth to stop it, nothing to drive us to our knees as 9/11 did, is a world that will, I think, be very terrifying indeed. The Assyrians, like Radical Islam, were evil. But God still seemed to think that Israel and Judah were more evil still in their sins, according to Isaiah. To those whom much is given, much will be required. How much of the Christian legacy have we pissed away? How little revelation did the Islamic world have to work with? Whose judgement will be severer in the eyes of God?
Like Jefferson, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is indeed just.
