In our modern society human beings have apparently been turned into voracious monsters. They are tormented by an unquenchable thirst for life. They are possessed by an insatiable hunger for power. The more they have, the more they want, so their appetite is endless and can never be appeased. Why have people in our modern world become so distorted? Because both consciously and unconsciously they are dominated by the fear of death. For a person’s greed for life is really his fear of death; and their fear of death finds expression in an unbridled hunger for power. ‘You only live once!’ we are told. ‘You might miss out on something!’ The hunger for pleasure, for possessions, for power; the thirst for recognition through success and admiration – this is the sin of modern men and women.
