Are you Futilitarian? I’m Not!

Futilitarian, the Word of the Day for Thursday, July 7, 2011, means “Believing that human hopes are vain and unjustified.” (Futilitarian is a satirical coinage from the 1820s combining "futility" and "utilitarian.”)
Now while some human hopes and dreams are indeed vain and unjustified, I believe that all human hope based on and sustained by God, are not vain, nor unjustified. But conversely, all human hope not based on and sustained by God, is indeed futilitarian!
So whether one is futilitarian or not, depends on where your hope is truly based. If you would like to talk more on this subject, just let me know. Otherwise bye for now.
