The paradox of our time

i've been told that bitterness and anger show in my postings... i feel it's more a cynical nature knowing people will fuck up, just a matter of when and to what degree... most humans are never happy, never satisfied... never willing to help their fellow creatures "just because" --- it seems everyone wants something... even those professing love and charity fail to really think about 'what would Jesus do?'  i don't know for sure, but i can hazard a guess that He wouldn't be fighting an increase to "render unto caesar" for infrastructure and betterment of society in general... and i would hazard another guess that He would expect us to help those less fortunate than self... and i'm pretty sure He wouldn't be traveling in a personal jet owned by his ministry to visit the missions in other countries, i view him more as a traveling coach instead of business.... but, that's just my view of "wwJd?"

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We added years to life not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We've done larger things, but not better things.
We cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
