The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

Modern Cybernetic traces it humble beginings in the time of Blackbeard. If a bullet wound led to gange green, a surgeon cut off your leg and replaced it with hunk of wood. Same goes for an eye, teeth or a hook for a hand. Man and machine together, but a purely innocous situation. The next step was eye glasses, hearing aids, then electro-convulsive Therapy, then Pagers, GPS, so called smart phones etc. Most of this creeping movement was so slow as to almost be unnoticable.

But not to Little Big Dave. He was like an observant sponge. Saw All and remembered All.

The first solid evedence for LBD was when he felt his phone vibrate when, in fact, no one was trying to reach him. Phantom ring is what the shrinks call it. Strike two, was when cell phone companies started to give away expensive phones when you signed two year service contract. Strike three, when they started selling hearing aids that were attached to your skull. Not to forget Free Wi-Fi and voice recognition software. The End is Near.

The End is Near. So to, the Beginnig is Here.

My day job, my vocation is disabled. My avocation is Prophet. “The End is Nigh!” I carry a sign. Usually no one notices me, let alone listens. But lately small crowds, have stopped and listened to my sermons, even my generalized ranting and raving. And you know why? You want to make an estimated guess? Pestilence, failed crops. AIDS, the Zombie virus, the war with China. Just one of these would suffice, but we have all five.

God has a way of giving humanity a nudge. Nothing subtle about God. ‘You worship other gods? Money, Power, Internet, Fear? Here’s a reminder of Who’s really in charge: Me, the Almighty, the Alpha and Omega, Mother Earth and Allah.’ Then later: ‘I am a forgiving Father, come back to Me. I will hold you in My bosom.

‘Sure thing, God, whatever You say. I am your Humble servant. I am your man.’

I’m your man. What was I thinking — I’m so stupid. I’m certainly no prophet! Even if I was, I ain’t anymore. I can just run away and let someone better take God’s message to Ninaveh. ‘Let us take our journey, and let us go.’ Genesis 33:12. If I go to a far away land, then God will someone else to carry salvation to the Ninavehites. Right?
