Shaky Ground

In asking the question, “What binds Canadians together emotionally ?”, an elderly Midway woman answered thus: “The fact that we don’t have any problems.”

Canada on the surface can say that because, compared to other countries, problems are not very pressing.

Many Canadians feel the same way about the Gospel. “We don’t really need it. There is nothing really wrong with us. We are good people.”

That is very shaky ground to stand on, much like dry quicksand.

One day it might rain hard and long. Unsolid foundations will move and collapse. Self-righteous clothing will be of no value.
