WE NEED MORE ADULTS

The adults are disappearing from our culture.  While people are still going through the aging process, as we always have, an increasing number of us seem not to make the transition from virtual childhood to being functioning adults
I have come to the belief that there are powerful forces, primarily in government and in the entertainment media, purposefully guiding this phenomena.
Prior to the 1960’s the nuclear family, a dad, a mom and some number of children, was the ideal.  Government did what it could to foster and protect this arrangement.  The entertainment industry of the time avoided content that was overly opposed to family values and any depiction of violence was rare and was usually punished.
Today we not only have far more freedom of expression, we seem to have gained far more freedom from responsibility.
We welcome gratuitous violence and sexual license into our homes and then vehemently deny that such content can have any effect on our conduct or on that of our children.  We also allow our government to further destroy the nuclear family through regulations that make it more profitable for persons in need to not be in an intact marriage.
Our government and the entertainment media at large have realized an advantage in keeping the greater part of our population nurtured (through handouts) and constantly entertained.
Their power, wealth and ability to control are directly proportional to the creation of low functioning adults and facilitated by the dissolution of the nuclear family.
What we are creating is a generation of “adults” who are not only easier to control but to a great degree not capable of recognizing that they are being manipulated.
This is not a new approach to controlling the Masses.  Remember, the Emperor Nero famously observed that the way to control a population was to give them “bread and circuses.”
The circle closes once again and the empire crumbles.

    hi rick, jesus said we have to be like little children to get into heaven, so why are you complaining?

      Seriously? Had he been exposed to two generations of electronic device addicted, childlike adults perhaps he would have rephrased that comment.

        hi rick, while i agree with your statement that ‘the empire is crumbling, child-like adults are just the tip of the iceberg where this country’s problems are concerned. i have been travelling around the western u.s. for two years finding out what peoples problems arer and praying for them and most of their problems are caused by this cruel christian government and church.

      Jesus was speaking to the how our faith, obedience, and trust in Him must be–not necessarily all of our behavior. Yes–we need to love like children love, but there are many childish behaviors that adults used to recognize as such. Parents would work to curtail these behaviors and adults battled them in their own lives. These behaviors would be: selfishness, temper tantrums, egocentricity, lying, helplessness, etc. The apostle Paul (whom Jesus spoke directly to on the road to Damascus) wrote, “When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.” There are many ways to be childLIKE, without being childISH.

    There are 4300 known religions on this planet. The United States armed forces recognizes and will provide service members counseling in 221 of them. There are 8 billion inhabitants on earth. 2 billion are Christian, 1.5 billion follow Islam while the vast majority, 4.5 billion, follows some other religion or none at all. It would seem that quite a large potential audience exists for your mission work. Don’t worry about my salvation, that is between me and my personal relationship with the Creator. I believe, as did Heinrich Heine, that “Dieu me pardonnera c ‘est son metier.”

    “God will forgive me, it’s his job.” And, to answer the question that you sent via my website, no, I am not Elijah. Please attempt to get some context in your life. I am simply an ordinary individual. We had a brief professional encounter 30 years ago when I hired and then weeks later fired you from a job as photographer. We do not have a personal relationship now, nor at any time in the past. I am not in need of a pen pal and I do not desire any sort of personal social media communication with you or, for that matter, any other person. I am at best a semi-recluse, by choice, and wish to remain such. Please pray to God, or Allah, or whatever Divine Presence you think might have an interest in governing your life and ask to be given enough clarity of thought to understand that what you are doing borders on harassment and the attention is, to say the least, unwelcome. I wish you well but hopefully in silence and from a distance.
