Ed Hurst: The School of Holy Cynicism

Sometimes the message you want to convey is much better said by someone else in such a way that adding something further looks like an offense. Such is the case with the great post by my namesake Ed Hurst, In the School of Holy Cynicism.

After this beginning:

Our school motto: Mankind is fallen. Sinners will sin. The implication is we should hardly be surprised when people do stupid, mean, evil deeds.

… the post goes on describing the hollowness of contemporary entertainment and singles out specifically that unnatural hybrid known as “Christian music.” And it is so much like it was in the times of old:

What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun. (…)

There is no remembrance of former things,
nor will there be any remembrance
of later things yet to be
among those who come after.
(Ecclesiastes 1:9,11 — ESV)

Well said, Ed.
