Solomon said it best when he said all in this world is vanity. Little means much, and there’s little that you can truly control in life, besides your own ability to work to the best of your ability, and enjoy the fruits of your labor, such as they are. It’s God who builds up and tears down . . . and anything you do or don’t have in life, otherwise, is up to him. (Ecc 3).
That being said, I’ve not posted much here in quite some time because I set out on what was a relatively popular string of posts on the Financial Crisis, and the economy. I quit because it got a bit depressing. Here’s where we’re at: Despite Obama and McCain calling each other socialists…our country just took the first giant leap into socialism, when Bush allowed the Fed to buy up portions of the largest banks in our country. We will more than likely continue into a worsening economy, despite reports that you may be hearing to the contrary. (However, I bought gas for $2.42 yesterday! YAY CRISIS!) No amount of meddling by the Government will stop the laws of market from working, and oil (and the market in general) was overbought, so a price correction is needed.
Obama will probably win the election, and no amount of my moaning and groaning on this blog will stop that. God can stop it, as it is God who sets up the rulers of nations. I feel that, in addition to God’s will being worked out (and perhaps his judgment, hat tip to Lincoln Adams here), there are other nefarious forces at work . . . although I hesitate to use the word “conspiracy,” that are propelling Obama into power. Even Biden himself has referred to some group with the ability to manufacture a financial crisis, and has suggested that they will use this power during Obama’s first year in office:
“It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.” (emphasis mine)
If this is true, and if we’re already being warned by Joe that things will look bad, I can’t help but believe that this is a power play to take over America, and rip the remaining shreds of our free market away from us.
As you can see, my thoughts on these things aren’t exactly cheery. So, I’ve decided to go back to writing about things I like. I believe Jesus is going to return soon, and with the small audience my blog has, perhaps I can encourage Christians to go out and witness, and make a difference in this world. Also, I do this at my leisure, and because I find it enjoyable. So…if writing about something isn’t enjoyable, I’ll write about something that is.
What does this mean for TheLimitless.com? It means that you should expect from here on out, some thought provoking Biblical posts, and some geeky tech posts, with some online gaming stuff mixed in. I may continue to blog about politics occasionally…but I think I’ll steer away from it for now.
Now go out and enjoy the life you have…it’s not getting any better until you do!
