I see within the statement of Benjamin Rush an intelligence that is often not displayed today by those that consider themselves the “elite.” Here is a man that in eloquent terms has captured the essence of life and living and with great ability has reduced it to a short paragraph and encapsulated the true means of life. Benjamin Rush understands that life does not exist in sipping wine to inebriation and critically commenting on art but knows that life consist in living, knowing there is a God that standards and Morals that are the basis of a life well led. Let us cling to the mission of Christ and never succumb to the wine bibbers of today. Amen.
