General Discussion / Checking in...

This forum is not a busy place, but I just want any casual reader to know that I'm checking it from time to time. One day Facebook may not be an option for Veridicans, and this place will be all we have.  [umm2]

If the right ever becomes unhinged, it's all over. The right is ruthless. The left is disruptive, but the right is actually quite unstoppable. And don't forget that most police and military are hard right. People talk about a civil war in the U.S., but if there ever were, it would last about three days--and then there would be a hard right, Christian-like, ruthless government in charge. Wait and see how intolerant that is!

The Antichrist will not rise to power from the left, it will come from the right. The Antichrist will seem like the ideal right-wing conservative Christian. That is what will make him so deceptive to so many. And so welcomed.

That's why it is imperative that you know that the Church Age is over and has been for a long time. That doesn't mean Jesus Christ is over. It means that the Church no longer has any influence in civilization, and it never will again. So, when you see it rise again, then you are seeing the abomination of desolation. Keep that in mind.

Good point.
Everyone has, does, or will suffer.
It's a part of life.

With that said, how could one help alleviate another's suffering?
What does it require?
Thinking of others first?

Empathy: the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another.

Does one have to have empathy?

I think that would all depend on what one is suffering from, what kind of suffering it is.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

It's a truly terrible thing. Thank you, Michelle, for bringing this up. I can't imagine the mindset of people who could eat food knowing that an animal wasn't just killed for it but was tortured for it. That's why God made hell, if you ask me. Some people deserve hell.  [carryon]
General Discussion / The Price of a Bowl of Soup

Sharks are man eaters.
The Great White that eats Quint in the movie "Jaws" proves that.
And there are too many stories about the surfer who got bit or could not swim away.
But if we enter the ocean waters, then we the ones who are intruding in their domain.
That is the risk one takes.
So, we should allow them to live according to their kind.

As a Veridican, I would never deliberately harm a shark, though there are people who do.

I was watching a television program about hunting sharks.
Gordon Ramsey was in Taiwan looking for those who hunt sharks, and he stated they hunt them for their fins.
I guess "shark fin soup" is a delicacy there and in other Asian countries.
The program turned out to be quite gruesome and horrific.
Gordon Ramsey was horrified by the animal cruelty he witnessed.
Every shark caught had all its fins chopped off, while alive, and their carcass tossed back into the ocean.
There I assume they bled to death, but the hunters got their fins who will then sell them.
So, the person who orders a bowl of "shark fin soup" must be grateful there are hunters willing to abuse sharks for their eating pleasure.

Now, imagine, you are walking down the street and a person grabs you and chops off your arms and legs and leaves you for dead—is that any different?
Man is a shark eater (at the cost of cruelty).

God entrusted man, this is the result.
Man has betrayed God's trust.
Man must reverse the actions he has done to God's creations.
You are correct, the answer is, "Overcome This".
