Sometimes I suspect that if Darwin was alive today he would amend his theory to state that human beings are actually de-evolving. I read an article a while ago about the pitcher on a high school baseball team who was hit in the head by a line drive. Which actually might explain the rest of the story, Daniel Hannant has filed a lawsuit against the makers of Louisville Sluggers, claiming that the company’s aluminium bats are “unreasonably dangerous” to pitchers because they are designed to hit baseballs very, very hard. Hello, earth to Daniel. Give your head a shake and see what that ball rattled loose. The point of baseball is to hit the baseball very, very hard. While baseball shouldn’t be as dangerous as, say bungee jumping, there are some dangers involved, like getting hit in the head with the ball.
We want to live a life that is consequence free, but that is impossible. Everything we do has consequences, a consequence of being human is that we sin, and a consequence of sin is hell. However the great news is that God was willing to take the consequences of our actions on Himself and forgive our sins; however it only works if you ask Him.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
