So we saunter through the carnival, on our way to nowhere. Like tourists, we are not really seeking the truth as much as we are spectators of new experiences, identities, images and styles that have been marketed to us in the giant mall of Western consumerism. Indeed, we have become “futile in [our] thinking, and [our] foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, [we] became fools” (Romans 1:21-22).
