Unless someone is obnoxious, everyone will remain hypnotized.

I just wanted to let you know that this saying is going on my quote list. It's so true! Anyways, here is where the obligitory, "I love your sight" would go... but this time, Ill let you imagen your own complement. :) I do enjoy what you have to say, even if I don't agree all the time. Blessings!

By "obnoxious," I meant curmudgeonly in the sense defined in the description of the web log. Given the context, the semantic range is wider than the dictionary definition given.

I have been rather obnoxious lately, but hopefully within the context of Curmudgeonhood as defined in the description of this web log. I sure love this blog-site and am checking in daily. There is a lot of hypnosis going on in today's culture. It is one thing to be clueless, but another to be clueless that you are clueless...hypnosis does this to people! May God's Spirit pierce our hypnotic defenses and set us free into the reality of truth. Hypnosis is to be artificially induced to be sleeplike...but Christians are drawn and empowered by God's Spirit to be sheeplike!
