Somehow that “Great Reset” slogan rubbed people the wrong way, so the self-anointed elites don’t say it anymore. Their new buzzword is “Build back better!” Like King COVID has given them the chance to scrap all that messy freedom stuff and create a statist utopia… with no more germs in it.
And I got to wondering, “Where have I heard this before?”
In the Bible, Isaiah Chapter 9. God has just warned the tribe of Ephraim and the city of Samaria that He is highly displeased with them and is going to make them feel it. But do they listen?
Verse 10: Ephraim and Samaria, “who say with pride and arrogance of heart, The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.”
You gonna punish us, God? Huh? Well, go ahead–and we’ll just build back better!
This is generally the kind of thing that precedes total ruin. This is the pride that goeth before a fall.
Too many of our leaders have no fear of God.
That’s how we wind up being governed by fools.
