When people are too smart or think they are too smart

Singapore is blessed with so many smart people, they called them talents or super talents. And often these people become too smart for their own good and for the good of the masses. Oops, maybe I shall not call this a blessing. When people think they are too smart and can get away with anything they want, thinking that the masses are plain daft, you will have a very serious problem. The smarter they think they are the more serious will be the problem.

Now what am I getting at? Wrong. I am referring to the City Harvest case in court. I have not been following and I must confess that I only have a very skimpy idea of the truth and what the case is all about. The truth shall set you free. From the headlines in the media I could gather that some people are very smart and believing that they are very smart, and could get away with anything they desired, with the help of God. They said, when God is willing, everything goes. Who is there to challenge the Almighty?

For the believers of God, God is supreme and infallible. The moral of the story is that if it is fallible, then one is praying to the wrong God. Human beans, no matter how smart are fallible. A false God is also fallible. Putting the two together, it only double confirms the theory that what is fallible will fall doubly fast and doubly hard. Amen.

Verily verily I said unto you. Whoever believes in me shalt have everlasting life.

Mr RB, verily, verify, I said unto you.

Do not think that just because you have Believe in Him, you are already SAVED and can do what you like, want snd desired.

There's still a word called KARMA in the eyes and mind of GOD.

In today's paper, many oldies suddenly realised that they have not enough money to pay for medical insurance that can go up to $8000.

Some thought using Medisave to pay never mind, not cash so not money. When Medisave not enuf now must come out with cash, got no choice but to terminate policy.

Politics is as entertaining as religion because both these ideas presuppose ideology, structure and an "elite class" who are 100% correct in their judgements and actions everytime -- no exception.

Many people think that FAITH -- i.e. believing in things without supporting and falsifiable EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE -- is a virtue. This is where all the trouble begins. Faith, upheld as something so morally superior, means that you elevate the NONSENSE that faith requires to believe as the objective standard by which everthing else is measured or considered.

Haha... it was the oldies that supported the regime to this day.
They got to be responsible for their deeds even if they regret now. Karma has its way, it us said. Their young ones unfortunately suffer great collateral damages. Pitiful people suffering because of their forebears.
No blaming Redbean and Agongkia.

God is great but blind faith is always dangerous. Worshiping blind faith is not what God wanted. God wanted the people to seek for wisdom, the real truth and get the real understanding and not just the easy way out by blind faith. if blind faith is all that is needed, God will not create the people with the ability to reason and to seek truth.

Proverbs 3:13 - Blessed is the one who FINDS wisdom, and the one who GETS understanding,
