TRMITM = The Reason Man's In This Mess

TRMITM begins with turning from God and then imitating God.

Whenever your mouse passes over or pauses on the sarcastic-editorial abbreviation TRMITM18 , anywhere in the Catholic American Thinker website, the words The Reason Man's In This Mess should appear in a little pop-up text box, so you don't need to actually click on it every time just to see what it means. Just put your mouse on it without clicking, and look at the text box. (Use your browser's Back button to return.)

When you strip it all away and try to get to the heart of it, "The Reason" is the result of an ancient, very simple and very fundamental error.  It involved, first, a turning from God, and ended with an imitation of God. 

[1]Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, `You shall not eat of any tree of the garden'?"
[2] And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden;
[3] but God said, `You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
[4] But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die.
[5] For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
[6] So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, and he ate.
[7] Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.
(Gen. 3:1-7)

To "Be Like God" is the ultimate temptation. 

Truth is Truth regardless of what anyone believes about it or how anyone "reasons" themselves around it.  People who pick and choose religious tenets they happen to agree with while rejecting other tenets they happen to disagree with are really saying something about themselves.  They shape God to suit themselves rather than shape themselves to suit God.  This of course is "The Reason". 

You don't have to look to far around yourself today to see glaring examples of men trying hard to be like the God they have abandoned, as they seek to control the weather, climate, etc., through legislation, taxes, "Carbon Credits", growing government or other government action.  Now, some of these are devious men who really seek to gain more control over other men; however, most of them really believe that man can eventually take control of the universe. 

To be like God.

Vic,

I feel that I must mention that this is probably the finest and most succinct article that you have penned yet!

The words should look familiar, since they are taken almost verbatim from your comment after the Social Justice page.  Thank you so much!

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input. 
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi

Atheist Genesis:

In the beginning there was nothing, and nothing happened to nothing.
And then nothing accidentally exploded and created everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally encountered other bits of everything and formed some new kinds of everything.
And then some bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into self-replicating bits of everything.
And then some self-replicating bits of everything accidentally arranged themselves into dinosaurs.
