The Helper Convicts the DeSinsetized

Physical desensitizing is something that biologists have long been aware of. Basic training in the armed forces tries to desensitize new recruits to pain. We can desensitize ourselves to the summer heat by turning off the air conditioning, or become desensitized to the cold by walking barefoot in the snow. But desensitize is more often used when talking about negative emotions. Parents worry that their children will be desensitized to violence by playing video games. Soldiers may become desensitized to death on the battlefield. Desensitizing may be natural and desirable under some circumstances, but maybe not so good in others.


Many children were desensitized to violence through ceaseless indoctrination, paramilitary training and participation in various other crimes.

“In a world of light & love, of song & feast & dance, Lucifer could find nothing to think of more interesting than his own prestige.” CSLewis.    In a world saturated with beauty and goodness, Adam and Eve could only think about becoming as great as God.  And in a world full of Jesus, the light and life of all mankind, James and John worried about their seating assignment in a heavenly game of musical chairs.
Mark 10:35-37 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to Jesus. “Teacher,” they said, “we want you to do for us whatever we ask.   “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. They replied, “Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory. When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. Jesus called them together and said . . . “Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
