Has it ever occurred to anyone that...

Has it every occurred to anyone that maybe God didn't botch creation? That maybe the sad state of this world hangs completely on man's head and that the fact that God didn't completely wipe out all of humanity is the ultimate testament of his patience and long-suffering amid the throngs of corrupted blasphemers and assorted rubbish under the guise of people?

Is it possible that maybe all of us, including the so-called best of us, deserve this world? Is it possible that maybe there aren't any good people, just lesser degrees of evil?

I think one thing holds true regardless. Man, even at his best and most pious, is simply an unprofitable servant, and he does well when he remembers that.
