The Progressive Wind We Sow

One hundred and fifty years ago Friedrich Nietzsche, the Godfather of "progressive" (and aggressive) postmodernism, proudly proclaimed:

“...truths are illusions about which one has forgotten that this is what they are; metaphors which are worn out and without sensuous power; coins which have lost their pictures and now matter only as metal, no longer as coins..”

And the fallout continues....Trickle down nihilism has come of age.
Ideas have consequences.
Today, we are paying the piper.




The Progressive Wind We Sow


When the Truth’s declared “illusion”,
Watch that growing crimson stain.
Watch as anger turns to hatred,
Watch emotion rule and reign.

Mr. Nietzsche saw it coming
Strapped in Bedlam long ago.
Now his Nihilistic vision
Is “progressive” wind we sow1.

We’re in finger-pointing free-fall,
There’s no Rock, no solid ground2.
Humanism’s own Creation…
Simply darkness all around.

It’s that same old Pilate Program3.
Here it is again, my friend…
If you’re able, hide the children
From the serpent’s ancient spin4.



If you’ve got a Bible handy,
Might be time to peek inside.
You may find the Living Word there5
Who exposes deadly pride.

You may find The Truth…Incarnate,
Yes, true Hope, and Joy…and more!
You may find Amazing Grace, sir…
And the Peace you’re longing for.
