A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Angels – 27 March 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

What’s wrong with this scene? An “angel,” supposedly sent by God on a mission to earth, pretends to be a waitress offering hors d’oeuvres at a gathering. She approaches a group of people and asks if they’d like “pate de foie gras?”

This is a scene from a TV show that is shown daily! Can you imagine God’s emissaries offering a paste of diseased, fattened liver from force-fed ducks and geese who suffer horribly? Would God condone the lacerated esophagus and the “hell” that these captive creatures are forced to endure? And for what? The warped, demonic delusion that this “food” represents “luxury”!

It’s bad enough when the “angels” in this TV series wear leather garments! But this “foie gras” scene really takes the proverbial “cake”!

Can you imagine that no one associated with the production of this show called attention to such anomalies? One more reminder of how corrupted the world really is – that those who claim to speak for God, two thousand years after Christ’s final sacrifice, still refuse to make the connection! Rightly does Jesus say in Matthew 7:20 –

20 "So then, you will know them by their fruits.

21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven.

22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?'

23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.' ~ New American Standard Bible

And in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) in The Book of Job are found these words of wisdom: “…to depart from evil is understanding.” (Job 28:28)

The Book of Isaiah, also in the Hebrew Bible, offers this food for thought (Isaiah 5:20):

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! ~ New American Standard Bible
