day no. 12,764 continued... they shoot horses, don't they?
I was watching a video by R.C. Sproul called Nietzsche “The Consequence of Ideas” when he mentioned a movie called, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?"
I checked it out from the library and Paige and I watched it.
It was one of the most miserable, depressing, dark things I have seen in a while. The sheer despair of life under the sun without a hope beyond it was devastating and difficult to watch.
It is the same sentiment captured well by the new Dustin Kensrue song "It's Not Enough."
Life under the sun is full of heavy regret and unmet expectation.
If there was no Life outside and beyond the sun, it would be more merciful to put us down and out of our misery like they do a horse with a broken leg.
In a world without God's grace, even when you win, you lose.
