As If It Even Matters. HA!

Click here to read Psalm 2

Donald Rumsfeld with Saddam Hussein in 1983.

"God in heaven does indeed laugh to scorn the furious raging of the people (Psalm 2:1). He laughs at our political passions and our military and revolutionary storms. All this, serious enterprises included, has precisely the dimension and value of a noise. In truth the dramas of the nations belong to this level, so that no one can finally glory in what results. We need to be convinced in all our political actions (and they are far from being futile) that we too have no reason to be triumphant."

-Jacques Ellul
The Politics of God and The Politics of Man

"Of every earthly plan that be known to man, He is unconcerned,
He's got plans of His own to set up His throne
When He returns."
-Bob Dylan
"When He Returns" 1979
