Masterpiece

Still applicable today; the disregard for the ecology of the earth, wonton violence against man and animal, self-loathin g and self-hatred clothed in the mantel of celebrity and cults of personality. We are truly loved to be allowed this much destruction. God's patience is infinite and his understandin g and willingness to let us take the path we may is the height of unconditiona l love.
