Watch the Cart Before the Horse

"The most terrible thing about materialism, even more terrible than its proneness to violence, is its boredom, from which sex, alcohol, drugs, all devices for putting out the accusing light of reason and suppressing the unrealizable aspirations of love, offer a prospect of deliverance."
—Malcolm Muggeridge


“Better for them to deny the mind--and with it rationality, truth, and science itself--than to admit the soul. Once again, the secularist manifests the very dogmatism of which he accuses the religious believer, and in rationalizing it is willing to contemplate absurdities of which no religious believer has ever dreamed.”
Edward Feser, The Last Superstition: A Refutation of the New Atheism



Watch the Cart Before the Horse


Watch as wars continue raging,
Watch the treaties crash and burn…
Watch the special interests wailing,
Darkened hearts that never turn.

Watch the U.N. resolutions
Fail again to bring world peace…
Watch agreements violated,
Watch the killing then increase.

Watch more backs now being bitten
Watching out for Number One…
Watch the chaos escalating,
Watch as cultures come undone.

Watch the darkness fast descending…
Watch the cart before horse,
Watch the will of Man misguided,
Human Reason run its course.

Watch The Law of God confounding,
Watch The Word now being banned…
Watch the eggs put in the basket
Of the Intellect of Man.

Watch the modern mantra chanted:
“Hey, kids….All you need is love!”
Watch the face of disillusion,
With no vision from above.

Watch the never-ending conflict,
Watch the fear of God erased…
Watch confusion spread like cancer,
Watch The Lie now be embraced.

Watch the Scriptures be abandoned,
Watch the broad way being blessed.
Watch as Virtue falls from favor…
Watch while Sin goes unconfessed.

Watch the Devil smugly smirking,
Watch more blood now being spilled.
Watch as lunacy is lauded,
Then watch prophecy fulfilled.

Watch the flesh of man keep striving,
Watch the Word be “metaphored”,
Watch the pride of Humanism,
Watch the Grace of God ignored.

Watch the Pharisees still screaming,
Watch the Sadducees agree…
Watch that person in the mirror
Still pretend he doesn’t see.

Watch the message being broadcast,
Watch The Truth be crucified…
Watch mankind still disbelieving,
Watch the Grace of God denied.



“This society in which we live is radically changing. What previous generations saw as evil is now embraced as being good. It is a dangerous and slippery slope upon which we stand when we reject what Solomon called the beginning of wisdom - the fear of God.”
—Ray Comfort
