The Show of the Beast
Warning: Severe Rambling Ahead
After tonight's show I have to admit, I had many questions running through my head. Most revolving around the issue of choice. Tonight we heard from various sides of the spectrum, however everything remained rooted in Christianity. I guess what I found perplexing was the argument over good and evil, as someone said tonight it is our choice (our moral decision) whether we have a world of evil or goodness. Then the age old question, who decides what is evil and what is good? Well, that all depends on what you choose to believe. Its a matter of your own interpretation right? For myself, coming from a Judea-Christian upbringing, I have a built in dichotomy because of each of my parents backgrounds - at times trying to form an opinion, I found everything became a little diluted. And I think that is what I grappled with tonight. There are so many ideas/feelings coming from all different sides, each trying to come under one umbrella, each promoting a variant of choice, ultimately who's holding up the umbrella? The same person deciding between good and evil? I don't know. Tonight The Hour did what they do best, brought up the questions and left them out for us to debate and discuss. Alright, rambling complete. Happy 6 Day ya'll.
