YESS! “Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge …”
ah fantastic quote, thankyou
at first I just had to laugh because in reality this is the sight of every Christian when faced with not just and atheist but worse, the ones who have been duped into believing the lies of the Devil. But then, all complexities aside of the number one cause for the lack of understanding of God due to that one big word no human ego can stand, suffering, God has so much patience with us and there He is viewing this scene every moment and He is the one who is wounded the most that you can’t help but be determined to show the same patience and long-suffering due to His great example.
Brilliant, I love the thoughts that this sent me into and I love the way you express so much in your work. You’re awesome and you always will be
how very profound the thoughts you share on this – suffering is such a crucial aspect of the whole thing, and ego, well you hit it right on the head. i’m awesomely lucky to be gifted a simple image that tells a story, you are awseome too my friend
