Hell is truth seen too late

Monday March 16th,  Numbers 21: 8 GOD said to Moses, "Make a snake and put it on a flagpole: Whoever is bitten and looks at it will live." 9 So Moses made a snake of fiery copper and put it on top of a flagpole. Anyone bitten by a snake who then looked at the copper snake lived. The first thing to do with a life threatening issue is to face it. Only then can you start to deal with the issue. Sometimes the issue is so great it is difficult not to face, like the economy.  Sometimes, the big issues of the day only serve to hide some smaller, but very important issues, like our continued new “isms” of gay rights, women’s rights, voter rights, abortion choice rights, family planning rights, etc.   There is even the continuing resistance to deal with climate change.  Perhaps Now is the time to face these and other critical issues.   Whether or not there is a natural cyclical pattern that is contributing to global warming, dumping millions of tons of garbage into the atmosphere, rivers and oceans is not helping. Going back to the 50’s on women’s reproductive, economic and family planning rights is not helping.  Turning voter rights back to the Jim Crow days is not helping.  Overturning the lessons learned in the last great depression is not helping.  Hell is truth seen too late and if we don’t stop the bozos on the far right, it will be hell.  The Kingdom is near, let us build a world that comes close to God’s vision of peace, rights and hope for all.
