There was a time when to say ‘word’ and ‘wicked’ was a popular slang. Another popular phrase was ‘ beam me up Scotty’ from the Star Trek weekly show. I loved to watch that movie Star-Trick.
For the discerning mind it was a sigh of the times because the ambition of wealth was to be rich and slothful. Slothfulness and the wickedness are one of the same according to My Sunday School teacher as she paraphrased in a Jamaican dialect.
You wicked and slothful servant, you knew that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strewed, she said, filled with sanctified emotion. To the envying of any standup comedian.
The most successful servant are the ones who’s own God given talent is multiplied unto themselves. Inadvertently accusing the creator of heaven and Earth of being self centered according to Mattnew 25. ‘24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew you that you are an hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not strewed: 25And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the earth:
Now the servants of tomorrow have no discernment of the sanctified ones until the bride and the bridegroom are no longer in the earth. Two men toiling, one is beamed up and the other is left.
The wicked now cries like Schindler in the movie Schindler’s List, comparing the cost of ten souls to the price of a writing pen. The commanding officer with the rifle in the window executing his own justice and forgiveness until he himself has served his purpose. They don’t make movies like they did before because our sense of discernment are buried in the earth. Here is a good title for a Horror movie. ‘ Gnashing Of Teeth’
It begins with a Sunday School teacher locked in the memory of the naked and afraid huddled in the cold winter and ends up in a place that was only prepared for the Devil and his Angles, weeping and wailing and Gnashing their teeth.
I saw that in Sunday School.
