The Illusion of Change

The Illusion of Change

It's true, on the surface, things have changed a lot over the past 100 years: our ways of getting from point A to B, our methods of communicating, or keeping ourselves fed, clothed and entertained.

However, no substantial change has taken place in the deep motivations of mankind for our actions, no significant change of heart.

We're still ruled by the same fears and lusts as our ancestors of all times. We just think we are superior because we have changed on the surface.

You put a remote control into a man's hand instead of a plow or shovel, and he'll think he's "evolved."
- Or a machine gun instead of a sword, and he may think he's come a long way. But the end result is the same.
You put a black face on the President, and at first everyone is awed: We've certainly never seen THAT before, nor did we ever think we were going to live to see it, but when it's just the same stupid white men pressing the buttons on his remote control who controlled the last puppet, it's "Meet the new boss - same as the old boss..."

Probably one of the greatest deceptions taking place in our times is the illusion of change,and I’m not just talking about the Obama administration, although it’s definitely a perfectexample of it.In order to create the illusion of change, some actual change has to take place, but onlyon the surface.And it’s true, on the surface, things have changed a lot over the past 100 years: our waysof getting from point A to B, our methods of communicating, or keeping ourselves fed,clothed and entertained.However, no substantial change has taken place in the deep motivations of mankind for our actions, no significant change of heart.We’re still ruled by the same fears and lusts as our ancestors of all times. We just think we are superior because we have changed on the surface.You put a remote control into a man’s hand instead of a plow or shovel, and he’ll think he’s “evolved.”
 
- Or a machine gun instead of a sword, and he may think he’s come a long way. But theend result is the same.You put a black face on the President, and at first everyone is awed: We’ve certainlynever seen THAT before, nor did we ever think we were going to live to see it, but whenit’s just the same stupid white men pressing the buttons on his remote control whocontrolled the last puppet, it’s “Meet the new boss – same as the old boss…That’s what stinks about organized Christianity, also increasingly referred to asChurchianity:” It totally misses the drift of its supposed Founder. Christianity as it is has become a force for conservatism in this world, when its original Founder was and is thetotal and absolute opposite.What Jesus was and is and will always represent in this world of phony changes, is totalRevolution, and total break with the decaying, sinful ways and attitudes of man, whichhaven’t changed a bit since Adam and Eve, except that they’ve gotten worse, similar tothe condition of a carcass over time.If He is the Life, we are the dead. If He is the Way, we’ve been certainly going in theopposite direction. If He’s the Truth, then most of what you will hear from us, the prideand glory of civilization, is the opposite. Just turn on the TV and count the lies you willhear within 30 minutes. Providing you are still able to discern between truth and lies.You’ll get the drift.So, change has happened, alright: the lies have become more and bigger. The conditionof the carcass humanity has worsened. However we’re more delusional than ever in our  perception of ourselves as the greatest thing to ever have happened on God’s earth. Until perhaps we catch an accidental glimpse of the 40.000 people we allow to starve each andevery day right in front of our noses, just to make sure there’ll be enough left for ustomorrow…So, you may buy into all the hype and rah-rah of progress, advance and the glories of mankind, I don’t buy it. AsDylanonce put it:“So, sing your praise of progressand of the doom machinethe naked truth is still taboowhenever it can be seen.”What’s worst about the illusion of change is that it makes us think we don’t need any realchange.What’s worst about the illusion of health is that it makes us think we don’t need theDoctor.What’s worst about our oh so great perception of ourselves, is that we’ll never realize justhow badly we need Somebody to drag us out of our mess.
