What happens in Vegas, stays.

The truth is, a moral compass can only point you in the right direction, it can't make you go there. Our culture preaches that you shouldn't be ashamed of anything you do anymore. And unfortunately this city is built on the principle that there's no such thing as guilt. "Do whatever you want, we won't tell." So without a conscience, there's nothing to stop you from killing someone. And evidently you don't even have to feel bad about it.

CSI, episode #145


When people or when a generation live merely for finite ends, life becomes a whirlpool, meaninglessness, and either a despairing arrogance or a despairing anguish. There must be weight-- just as the clock or the clock’s works need a heavy weight in order to run properly, and the ship needs ballast.Christ furnishes this weight, this regulating weight, by making it every individual’s life-meaning.

Christ puts eternity at stake.

Into the middle of all these finite goals Christ introduces weight, and this weight is intended to regulate life on earth, both its good days and its bad days. And because the weight has vanished-- the clock cannot run, the ship steers wildly --
human life is a whirlpool.


Kierkegaard
