The Pen is mightier than the sword, but the Pen must sometimes move the sword against corruption if the corrupt are not moved by the pen.. An idea without an implementer is useless. "The Rulers do not carry the sword in vain"Rom 13:4

Plastic people...is it worth the outcome?

If you are born ugly, how do you fix this? Answer...obviously, you use your trust fund to buy a new you!  Plastic surgery to change your look and shape.  Ok.. now you are beautiful, you meet "Mr or Miss Right" and voila.. heaven on a stick!

UNTIL ....you have your first child and she  is as 'ugly as sin' as the saying goes.  The man thinks.. "hey...I'm good looking, my wife is good looking...how come we have an ugly child????"   Then the truth will come out... all that plastic surgery was fine for you as a single girl, but woops.... the original DNA comes out in the offspring.

So it went apparently for a couple in China. The man married his dream girl, but she produced an ugly infant, when the truth about her Plastic fantastic came out...he divorced her and sued her for having 'ugly children'.

Before....and After the knife.
There are some other much deeper lessons in this.  One day we will meet our Maker and perhaps the 'plastic surgery' of our own self righteousness, might be removed to expose the real 'us' below?  The truth is...Christ died for our sin, and salvation is a free gift from God... a gift that, if rejected will result in an eternity in damnation....scary thought, even scarier reality. Extortion you say ?  Not at all!

‘Then why does God still blame us? For who is able to resist his will?’ 20 But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? ‘Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, “Why did you make me like this?”’ 21 Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?

In that few verses is the answer to the most vexing question of life. It's not a particularly satisfying answer for the narcissist, or the self lover or the Atheist...nope, but it's the best we will ever get this side of eternity.  I think it would be recklessly irresponsible to sugar coat this eternal reality.  If you are reading this, please consider your future in this life and the next... and come to Christ the author and finisher of our faith.
