Did God Resign?

IF THIS MONTH WERE A speedometer, for me it would have been pegged to the redline all month. A real tail-chaser. So busy that I’ve had to swear off crime and mischief and most of my repertoire of sins.

Not righteousness by works, maybe, but at least righteousness by working.

In a couple of days, this wee blog will be a year old. About 10,000 of you have stopped by during that time—and thanks for visiting and, some of you, for commenting.

This isn’t going to be long post—your blogger here is still busier than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.

But…

Listening to the news a few minutes ago, one of the lofty talking heads, speaking of the presidential race, advanced his towering wisdom that the candidates are running for “the most important job in the universe.”

Uh….say what? Run that by me again?

Yes, I know that the media yakkers really do seem to think that the headquarters of the universe is in Washington, D.C., if not 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But last I heard, “the most important job in the universe” was already filled—and it’s not an elected position. And I haven’t heard that God has resigned.

In fact, if you agree with me that besides the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the jobs of about a gazillion angels are also more important than the president of one country on a tiny polluted planet in a remote outpost solar system far from heaven—well, if you agree with that, then the candidates are running for, at best, “the One-Gazillion-and-Fourth most important job in the universe.”

Human ego. Sometimes it’s so disconnected from reality that you don’t know whether to laugh or mourn.

    Oddly enough, even if you don’t believe in God, running for president of the U.S. isn’t the most important job in the universe. That requires you to believe (1) there’s no other life in the universe, and if there is, (2) Earth is still the center of the universe. Now where have we heard that before?

    If you do believe in God, that only makes the statement harder to explain.

    My guess is that the guy who made the statement doesn’t truly believe in God. Otherwise, he’d be nervous putting the president of a country on a little planet out on the edge of the galaxy (never mind the universe) above God.

    But who knows?
