The trouble with defective thinking is that It Invariably Leads To Even Further Insanity!

One of the things that having lived a longer lifetime is supposed to impart to all truly matured men is The Unique Perspective Of Understanding Human History From Within A Much Broader And Indeed Spiritual Context.

In fact, the opportunity to obtain some form of Necessary Wisdom is the only true benefit to growing much older.

Or, as it says, in Proverbs Chapter 20:
" The Glory Of Young Men is found in their: Youth, Strength, and Limitless Vitality; while The Splendor Of Old Men is found Within Their Own Gray Head.- Proverbs 20:29.

" It's Always The Same " - since, Genesis.
Which, of course, Is Not To Say That All Old Men Have Been Equally Gifted In That One Specified Area... since, indeed, the vast majority of them will never achieve anything within the realms of: Actual Common SenseHonest Perception, and Objective Understanding!

After all, according to Proverbs Chapter 9:
The Fear Of The Lord is The Beginning Of Wisdom [ or, merely, the starting point in the overall process of actually obtaining it ], and A Knowledge Of The Holy One is Understanding [ and, the inevitable result of digging very deeply into everything ]. " - Proverbs 9:10.

It ( really ) is: " Ironic " - now, isn't it?
And thus, while Wisdom is: A Most Precious, Highly Sought After, and ( indeed ) Quite Valuable Commodity - to those who, so desperately, need it in order to survive - it most often goes largely unrecognized; amidst ' All Of Those Other Voices That Are Always Shouting To Get Heard '.

Consequently therefore, in the much grander scheme of things, we are most often ( merely ): " Chained To The Rhythm "... when, all most of us really want to be is quite honestly ( just ): " Safe And Sound "!

In fact, Proverbs Chapter 29 just puts it this way:
" Where There Is No Revelation [ or, true understanding of God ], The People Will Cast Off Restraint [ in now acting however they choose ]; but happy is He Who Keeps The Law [ since, God shall exalt such a man to inevitably rein them all in ].
A Servant will not be corrected by Mere Words [ since, words may be so readily ignored ]; for though he understands [ such important things deep within his own heart ], he will not respond [ because, his own judgment is no longer bounded by reason of restraint ]. " - Proverbs 29:18-19.

And, While Defective Thinking Is Expected From Most Children: Our Own Standards Must Be Higher For Those Of Experienced Adults....

You see, dear brothers and sisters, The Word Of God simply puts it this way:
" But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask all the more. " - Luke 12:48.
Or, to put it yet one other way:
" Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin. " - James 4:17.

What is the meaning of: " Bye Bye American Pie "?

Ahava and Shalom.

May Yahweh's Own: Love and Peace - be upon you!
