Suffering… suffering what?

To suffer a stuffed shirted bore…

a boring lecture less than impassioned…

an experience where lives are affected

and effecting the viewpoint or outlook

of orphans and widows…

to rise above the condition people may

find themselves in where we do relate to them…

feel for them… even to know what they need

before they’d ask you, this is what it feels like…

to suffer for people suffering, and to place your

own feet on the ground they understand…

this is where the heart of any of humanities

religions is either true to character or just

lip service… christians stood up for these

people groups, historically and presently,

and gave us: orphanages, hospitalers,

charitable groups and human compassion…

to see what is needed is the human in humanity,

and that anything short of mercy is inhuman.

We has reached the apex of the apogee of peacefulness and its vision for humanity. We have more people referring to: the crusades, slavery and peace… but are unwilling to take off ‘the rose colored glasses of their own bias’. Their intentions are made evident from this error… akin to Balaam’s error… by omission or indifference to facts either known or disregarded. This is nothing more than politicizing personal opinion or beliefs held… akin to a personal theocracy– the self worth of worthlessness… where selfish are the motives displayed and not altruistic in nature. See them for what they are… they will never be what you’ll expect them to be.
