Savior and Lord

Henry Louis Mencken once said, “The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.”

In context, he was talking about those who rhetoric insisted they could “rescue” society or improve the human condition solely through civic and political action. It’s an interesting insight, particularly when considering that the only Man who was truly able to save humanity is also the only One with the authority to reign omnipotently and the ability to rule perfectly.
