The Blind leading the Blind...Blind leading the blind,
lead by those of impure mind,
story of mankind!
Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached unto them. And blessed is he, whoseover shall not be offended in me.Matthew 11: 4-6
And He spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they both not fall into a ditch?Luke 6:39
And in the same hour He cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.Luke 7:21
Quote..."When the foundation is gone, the house must fall. Perhaps ingeniously prop it up for some months, some years even; perhaps walk airily under its doomed roof loudly insisting that it is as secure as ever it was. Sooner or later it must fall. The foundation of any human society which lasts, which provides the individuals who compose it with whetever security is attainable for them, must be reality. On falsity nothing can be built but pretence; in falsity there is no strength, whatever arms or wealth are at it's disposal.Time and Tide 1935
To reality, men must sooner or later return; but they will only return to it through suffering, and with humble and contrite hearts. Blood must be shed and humiliation endured before they again understand that sacrifice, not satisfied desire, is the way to fulfilment; that work, not money, is the measure of achievement; that fruitfulness, not pleasure, is the end of passion; that strength, not stratagems, is the basis of authority; that faith, not knowledge, is the way to understanding; that duty, not indulgence, is the path they must tread, and their common humanity, not their unique ego, what will hearten them to tread it.

Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.Psalms 127:1
