Mammon has been ruling this world, in the name of giant corporations, banks, and complicit governments. Yet people have begun to vote against this Spiritual beast. I am reminded of my picture of St George and the dragon in the Icons section. The mountain fell when George pierced the dragon.
Perhaps this was the mountain of corruption and lies built by human hand before the presence of God. Watch out for the tail lashing though, that dragon might put up a fight before he is cast back into the place God has prepared for him and all his cohorts.
There is still time to repent, for God is gracious and just. To turn away from self interested violence. To beat those weapons into ploughshares as the Prophets foretold.
Embrace each other as real friends, not just allies. Make real peace, not truces. Let God own the planet, and let's be good tennents and caretakers of his wonderful creation. Let Love conquer evil in our hearts. Embrace a future that is not fraught with past mistakes.
Look after the poor, the sick, the young the elderly and infirm, seek what is good honourable and just. This is our real quest, to shed all that is unworthy by clothing ourselves with all that is good in Gods eyes. To serve one another is to serve God.
