Yet, in a way Ray was a hero (at least by our culture’s standards). He was selfish. He was self-centered. He was egotistical. He was self-absorbed and was focused too much on power, privileges, and the pleasures that excessive wealth could bring. I say he was a hero because basically Rehoboam was not any different than us. He really wasn’t any different than the average human. The heroes of today are those who live excessive lifestyles like sports figures and those in the entertainment industry. He was the Hugh Heffner of his day except we have to wonder if Rehoboam’s empire was built more around Playgirl, if you know what I mean.
