A Caricature of Civilization December 18, 2015

Brilliant American Journalist Sydney J Harris, wrote in an article he called “A Caricature of Civilization, ” “It is man’s singular fate to know the he is an incomplete creature, a kind of monster and angel joined together, with the monster forever betraying the angel.” Harris wrote columns in 200 newspapers throughout the USA and Canada. In light of ongoing and recent acts of terrorism, his words are sadly appropriate for our times. Our Creator prepared this beautiful world for us, and planted Adam and Eve in the pristine Garden of Eden. They rebelled, and we follow in their footsteps. Describing this, Paul wrote, “Just as through one man sin entered the world and death through sin, thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.” But the story does not end there. Though we are incomplete, as Harris suggests, Christ’s love shown at Calvary, provides completeness. He promised, “I have come that they may have life, and … have it more abundantly.” That’s a minute of truth!
