We live in truly surreal times. In an age when all human beings still do not have access to human rights—and when some of the world’s foremost bioethicists declare that the unborn and cognitively disabled are not persons—radical environmentalists and others are agitating to grant “rights” to objects in nature.
In the latest phase of this descent into metaphysical madness, two rivers have been declared to be legal “persons” endowed with human-style rights ...
As we are now witnessing, once a culture divorces itself from transcendent truth, madness is inevitable. Barring repentance, this is only the beginning as the culture spirals deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole. The mad people deluded by a fictitious reality will readily accuse of insanity those who stubbornly cling to the anchor of transcendent truth and are firmly embedded in true reality. In Acts 26:24, the Roman governor of Judea accuses Paul of being insane. It's especially noteworthy that Jesus, the One who created and defines all of reality, was Himself accused of insanity several times during His ministry.
Many of them said, “He has a demon, and is insane; why listen to him? (John 10:20)
We can expect no less.
