Ayn Rand

Last week Glen and I watched a documentary on Ayn Rand. 
I remember reading her in college, but missed the point entirely. 
Her philosophy centers around self.

“We are not our brother’s keeper.” 

It is a philosophy of selfishness, a philosophy built on a universe 
where there is no God.

Our Savior “Made himself nothing and humbled himself by becoming 
obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross,” for us.

Ayn Rand’s philosophy of selfishness is in the ascendancy. 
Our culture has no compass, no sure foundation, no boundaries. 
As Christians, how then should we live? 
Where does our strength come from?
