“Almost all absurdity of conduct arises from the imitation of those whom we cannot resemble.”
― Samuel Johnson

The other afternoon as I was on my way home from Dad’s, finding myself traveling happily lickity split on the highway, as I thankfully worked my way out and away from the madness of the city…I was winging my way home in the fast moving far left lane…
People with lead feet usually prefer the far left lane…
All of a sudden, the car in front on me slams on its brakes, as if a goose had wandered in front of it on this tangled conglomeration of highway and cars…
My reflexes kick in and I feel myself bracing for impact….
The real issue here however was not an errant wandering goose, but rather that this driver had decided that she needed to exit…as in immediately. As in crossing 5 lanes of rapidly moving traffic, over to the exit at the far right, that was soon to be just a mere blur of a memory by everyone driving lickity split…was perfectly alright.
Makes perfect sense right???????
And by what can only be credited to the Grace of God… no one was killed or rear ended…the
idiot car made it to the exit.
You’ve got to love those who are in the far left lanes and decide instantaneously that the exit in the far right lane is where they want to be…as in now.
Stupid, unnerving, maddening, dangerous, idiotic, potentially deadly and mostly absurd!!
So as I regained my composure, continuing lickity spilt in my now nervous left lane, I began to ponder the often infuriating wealth of life’s absurdities.
With one truly glaring facet…
That of the Truth.
You know that little thing we were all taught early on to always tell.
As in your nose will grow long if you don’t,
As it’s always stranger than fiction…
and that it will truly set you free…
Yet it dawned on me that the Truth, in this bizarre and surreal world of the overt PC police, the Truth is not politically correct.
Of course it’s not!
To be politically correct one has to bend both Heaven and Earth to fit square pegs into round holes..and of course we don’t like to use the word Heaven as it may be too offensive for some and then square pegs and round holes may be considered too demeaning to others…
perhaps you can see how this is all coming into play…
The Truth–as in the word and law of God, just doesn’t fit into today’s round holes.
And praise the Lord it doesn’t.
Thank God that God is not politically correct.
And yet this grossly politically correct world of ours has decided to just cut Him, His Law, His Word totally out of the picture because they just can’t seem to get any of part of Him to fit in their round holes.
Oh they’ve tried…
They’ve tried to bend what He said, what was written…
God isn’t God…
Jesus isn’t Jesus
Praying to God offends…oh, but Mohammed is ok…
The Ten Commandants aren’t really real laws
and for heavens’ sake, don’t display them because they are offensive…
Forget what He said about same sex unions
Forget what He said about what happens when you opt for the sinful side of life….
And forget about anything being said about too much of a good thing really being a bad thing—
because to heck with that kind of thinking, cause we’re going to party likes it’s….
I think I’ve written about that one before….
So as I continued to lickity split down this one particular highway of my life….
I came to the happy conclusion that the Truth is indeed NOT politically correct…
and the truth of the matter is that I think I very much like that little realization…
So here’s to a being a rebel with all things politically correct…
And remember…it is never wise to exit right when you are in the far left lane…
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.
1 John 14:6

You’re very welcome! 🙂
Yes, Jesus shows us the way to the Father and the way to live. These are puzzling times indeed.
I love your posts, Yoda and I read them every day. Also with you on the PC stuff. It’s offensive!!
Oh to be sure Jarjar—and I do appreciate you reading and coming in for a visit—does a body good 🙂
Amen and amen!!! Politically correct just means that the “theys” have whitewashed things enough that the “mush” that’s left goes down easily so that they consciences don’t choke on it and that trying to walk the straight and narrow really isn’t necessary after all. Great post missy. I’m so glad you weren’t hurt in the mishap with the “idiot!” 🙂 ❤
Well said, Lickity Split! It reminds me of what unbelievers will try to do on the Final Day when they see Jesus coming on the clouds and they realize they should have made that turn a long time ago. The beauty of grace is that on this side of Heaven everyone has a chance to get into the right lane–repent and believe and you shall be saved! Hallelujuah! ~ Blessings!
ahh Laura–you brought a great smile to my face :)—very clever my friend and very apt indeed—on that final day—drivers beware! 😉
