Humanism’s Bitter End

Self-proclaimed atheist, George R.R. Martin, the talented author and creator of the wildly popular, made-for-TV, pop-cultural phenomenon “Game of Thrones” was recently interviewed. He made this sadly telling comment:

“I think the books are realistic. I’ve always liked gray characters. And as for the gods, I’ve never been satisfied by any of the answers that are given. If there really is a benevolent loving god, why is the world full of rape and torture? Why do we even have pain? I was taught pain is to let us know when our body is breaking down. Well, why couldn’t we have a light? Like a dashboard light? If Chevrolet could come up with that, why couldn’t God? Why is agony a good way to handle things?”

Humanism’s Bitter End

 

Welcome to the game we’re playing

Where there’s no true Light to see.

Welcome to the devil’s throne room

Where The Dark’s our destiny.

 

Welcome to the “realism”

That sees characters of gray.

Welcome to the never-ending

World that’s ruled by “Let us prey!”

 

Welcome to the Anti-Gospel,

And the agonizing crowd.

Welcome to the story told by Fallen man…

The Mighty, Proud.

 

Welcome to the nihililistic,

Hopeless Entertainment , friend.

Come, enjoy the Bread ‘n’ Circus…

Humanism’s bitter end.

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” – John 3: 17-21
