Dinosaurs indoors–not recommended!
Just for the halibut yesterday, a soothing brain-soak, we watched Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom. I mean, c’mon–these special effects are the berries.
Ah! But that’s not what I noticed yesterday. Something I hadn’t quite picked up on in earlier viewings:
The sheer and boiling lawlessness of the whole depraved enterprise.
Yes, lawlessness. An absence of law. A famine for hearing the law. An absence of obedience. We don’t actually get dinosaurs, but this is the kind of world you get when there’s no law. You get vikings, bikers, the Wild West. Concentration camps. Science labs where they study how to make diseases much worse than they naturally are. Mad Max.
And can it be we’re building such a world, as we speak? Is this what Portland, Oregon, is all about? And San Francisco. And the killing fields of Chicago and New York. And you turn on the TV nooze and they’re lying to you.
First you break God’s law, then man’s. Local laws, state and federal laws, international law. Seems to be where this age is headed.
We pray, O Lord! Thy Kingdom come. Soon, please!
