When we look at our actions and reactions as human beings, a lot can pass for stupidity. The things we value are the things that will kill us. Today things had grown so bad that the most stupid dressing is called modern dress, that will attract the press, and many will start to run after it.
Just have a look at the hairstyles of today; some are named madman’s style or crazy-man’s style. Yet you will see people carrying such styles on their heads.
The world is crazy and stupid.
The greatest problem we have is that the people that are to help us are equally stupid and even more. They are the CHRISTIANS.
