A Brick in the Valley

Hefner and the Flatus of a Wasted Life

Crunchy Con (click here) interacts with a GQ article on Hugh Hefner.  He notes that the symbolic, and apparently literal sound, Hefner is making as he passes off the scene is that of flatus.

If the passing of gas acoustically symbolizes Hefner, then 1 John 2:15-17 gives a theological explanation.  Hefner, and what he represents, is “passing away along with its desires.”

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world— the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever (1 John 2:15-17).

So sad.

Alternatively, follow Christ and, “abide forever.”
