We are ALL Insane

Read history.

Any history. Any country. All of it is completely insane. Thousands upon thousands of years of complete and utter madness.

Read the Bible.

How is it possible for the Children of Israel – in the wilderness – to be so crazy as to rebel against God?

Read your newspaper.

On second thought… don’t. The WRITERS of newspaper articles are certifiably insane, already. But, current events are even MORE insane.

It’s as if we have all been overcome by a mass psychosis. And, it’s all so very stupid. Mind-boggling idiocy. The mindless, brainless, knee-jerk absurdity of it all is almost beyond my ability to understand.

MP3 Audio:



When Adam ate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, we all went insane. Yes, the Bible speaks of sin, and I completely agree. But, ‘sin’ is just a shorter way of saying insanity.

Who in their right mind would disobey the Creator of the Universe?



Sin is just insanity mixed with a recognition of God. But, I will understand if you need a little more convincing.

My First Job

My first job, out of college – and while I was getting my MBA – was sales. I worked for a company that provided networks for businesses. And, one of the most memorable principles that I learned was this:

I takes ten ‘atta-boy’s to make up for one ‘oh s–t’.

That is literally the exact wording. And, I will never forget it. In sales, it really does take ten positive events to make up for one equally negative event.


That point was reinforced when I was learning about what it took to have a good marriage. And, I learned something interesting:

There needs to be five positive inputs to a marriage, to make up for one negative input.

Oh, and here’s another one:

If both you and your spouse share your responsibilities equally, you will BOTH feel like the other person isn’t doing enough.

That’s right, if you have a ’50-50 relationship’, both of you will feel like it isn’t. It is only when you look at the numbers that you actually SEE that it’s ‘fifty fifty’.

The Negative Is 5X The Positive

I say all that to illustrate that we see a negative between five times and ten times more than we see a positive. And, all of that is completely and utterly insane.

I don’t care who you are.

I don’t care how old you are.

I don’t care how smart you are.

It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman.

You will still see the negative five times more strongly than you will see something equally positive. And, as I said before, that is utterly and completely insane. And yes, I even recognize this in myself.

My Own Negativity

Believe it or not, I’m a pretty positive guy, but I still wrestle with my negativity all the time. And, I have to keep reminding myself that we naturally weigh an insult five times more highly than we weigh a compliment.

An Insane Week

Well, this week was lots of insane. Lots. Lots and lots. Even parking lots.

We had the IG report that showed absolute corruption in the FBI, but no interest in doing anything about it.

Barack Obama was the one to separate children from illegal immigrants, but the insane Left is blaming Trump.

Oh, and did you know that the IQ of Americans has been declining since the 1970s?

Then I had dishonest Flat Earthers writing to me, claiming that this video from last week didn’t go far enough:

Flat Earth CRUSHED by Discovery Channel


And to add insult to injury, I wanted to write about a Christian principle that I could talk about without reservation – only to find Christian insanity there, too!

How is it possible for Christians to think that the prophecies specifically given to Israel are now held by the church?

Are they insane?

Well yes. They are. So, there’s CHRISTIAN insanity.

In fact, last week, as I was trying to do a positive piece about two videos, I found that I couldn’t – since the person in the two videos claimed to be a Bible literalist, while proving that he wasn’t. You cannot claim to be a literalist about the Bible, when you are claiming things to be true, that are nowhere in the Bible.

But, how can anyone dare to add or subtract from the Bible and still be sane?

There are Christians who believe that we are IN the Millennium!

There are Christians who believe that there is NO Millennium!

There are Christians who believe that a woman can be a pastor, when the Bible specifically says that this is forbidden!

There are an astounding number of Christians who believe that sex before marriage is okay.

There are Christians who believe that you can kill people for Christ. In fact, they believe that we must conquer the world for Christ, so that He can return. And yes, killing for Christ is what they believe.

Christian Insanity Is Truly Astounding

I am truly astounded by the amount of insanity within our churches. We are uncaring, unkind, unloving and tightfisted. We barely tithe, and when we do… we give it to shiny megachurch pastors and there private jets. We can barely sit through a Sunday morning service, and the thought of a Sunday night and Wednesday night service is just too much!

Have you noticed how churches are meeting less and less?

For shorter amounts of time?

We are full of insane notions about the Bible that are nowhere in the Bible. And, as I watch the Body of Christ in America tear itself apart, I see this American version of Christian insanity reaching Taiwanese churches.

The Madness Reaches Taiwan

Some of these Taiwanese pastors must have spent too much time in America, because they have certainly picked up some awful habits. And, I should not be surprised, since the worst of American culture has made inroads into this once-traditional society. And, it breaks my heart to see it.

When we first came to Taiwan, Taiwanese girls didn’t ‘sleep around’, and homosexuality was hard to see. Now… now it’s everywhere and in your face. And, I will be forced to watch it tonight on the way to the Bible class that Mrs. Little and I teach, every Friday.

The Worst Insanity Of All

But, the thing that depresses me the most is the willingness of Christians to disobey God. We continually add and subtract from the Bible. We insert our own notions of who God is, and how He should act. We chase after teacher, wanting our itching ears to be scratched.

In fact, Paul warned Timothy that this would come:

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 – 2 Timothy 4:3-4

Yup. That’s us. We have turned away from God, and turned towards fables. And, it hurts to see it.

How dare we do this!

Please. Stop the madness and turn back to God.
