This week's lesson: hope

Once upon a time, people thought they could make this world a better place.

Foolish earthlings!

And so they tried to end slavery, eradicate smallpox, eliminate discrimination against women, stop children from working in coal mines . . . and maybe even get rid of Sunday Blue Laws!

Foolish, foolish earthlings!

Today, of course, we know that all such attempts are doomed to failure. That this world will only get worse and worse. And that anyone who truly believes that Jesus will come again in glory must abandon any hope that He can make a difference here on earth.

Nothing else could be more obvious.

Foolish, foolish, foolish earthlings!
