Q: What holds the world up?

A: The inner desire of all things (1) to exist and (2) to interact with all other things according to law.

Writes Gary Watson:

Sexual activity must strike the non-erotic being as perfectly grotesque. (Perhaps that is why lust is sometimes said to be disgusting and sinful in the eyes of God.)

Nonsense. God is 100% erotic. He is in love with your soul which in relation to Him is feminine, wants to make sweet love to it, impregnate it with His grace, and have it bear sweet fruit.

The physical imitates, is a sign or sacrament of, the spiritual.

American globalism wants to invite the world; and American nationalism wants to invade the world.

I don’t like either.

My feeling is that this country is in very serious trouble.

Pray to God that He may have mercy on America and raise for us champions who, through their good mighty deeds, will save us from self-destruction.

Some philosophers have the following view of the real-world economy:

We have two classes of people, the better off and the worse off, squabbling over the distribution of booty, the worse off calling the better off greedy and selfish, and the better off calling the worse off useless eaters.

Nothing could be simpler.

Ronald Preston who claims to be a Christian produces the following gem regarding what he calls attempts to domesticate the “radical” teachings of Jesus:

One has been to say that Jesus expected the imminent end of the world and that the ethic was meant only for the short time left.

This is probably correct about Jesus’ expectation, but it does not follow that the ethic is irrelevant now that the world has not ended. (A Companion to Ethics, 99)

Try this for a syllogism:

1. Jesus is God.
2. God is omniscient.
3. Therefore, Jesus was and is omniscient.
4. Therefore, Jesus’ knowledge of the future when he was among us was perfect.
5. The world did not end shortly after Jesus’ death.
6. Therefore, Jesus could not have falsely believed that it would.

I mean, if Jesus was that deluded, then far from being God, he was a (merely human) idiot.

Preston’s claim is pure blasphemy.
