Medium Too Rare
Oh dear. The choice of metaphors in my last post are most unfortunate in light of recent events but all I can say is, I'm not the only one who has come off looking bad, and they are typical enough expressions for the fall itself, without needing a literal interpretation. And hey I'm not psychic.
I'm here with an interesting and controversial proposition. Christians often claim to being the arbiters for progress and civilisation and it becomes difficult to untangle what positive gains are a result of Christ's example of love and compassion and what is more correctly placed at the feet of brave rationalists. Well consider this:
The church militates against the use of magic and of all psychic exploration on the basis that there is a Biblical injunction against such practices. So in a theocratic state we would have no mediums or profilers to find missing children or solve crimes undetectable by scientific methods; we would have no means of divining or dowsing for minerals and water. A full embrace of the gospel would have left crimes unsolved, villains unpunished, and people perishing for want of basic sustenance. That's some legacy.
Give no thought for the morrow and have no means of predicting it.
