@pe7erpark3r Specific to Christianity, I think my biggest misgiving can be summed up in the parable of the Prodigal Son. The younger son gets his inheritance early and spaffs it away on hedonism. The older son has to continue toiling the fields. Now, I get the overall message. Forgive the younger son for being a d1ck and forgive the older son for his bitterness because they both get swallowed up in the greater meaning of God.
But at the same time ...it seems like very, very basic common sense to treat people's human sensibilities with respect. Imagine if the older son represented, say, the entirety of the working class of England (what's left of it). Imagine them flinging their hands in the air and saying, "Right, Dad, you're getting no more work from us".
Society would collapse in a malaise of hedonism and conceit (and if we carry on at this rate, it will really happen)
I mean, under those circumstances, Christianity would still be an incredibly important thing, perhaps still the most important thing in the world, but at the same time, I personally have got nothing to relate to. Which is not a criticism of Chritianity at all, it's just my personal thinking.
Topic -- was it just poor man's 'Picnic'? And was 'Picnic' just poor man's 'Boost'? And was 'Boost' just poor man's 'Double-Decker'? And were any of these choco bars even REAL or just MANDELA EFFECT PHANTOMS ALL CLOGGING UP MY FRIKKIN BRAINS?
I live with black people in a predominantly black area and have to be reminded at times that my skin color it is not as dark as those around me. Lol. I will be in the neighborhood and various hours of the night and people will ask me "aren't you afraid"? of what I ask. And they'll tell me if being so deep in the hood. I have to laugh. No I'm not afraid thankfully almost everybody knows who the hell I am.
I think if ppl would know their future and destiny there would be alot more suicides tbh 😅 I mean, if you didn't like what you saw what would you do? Keep hoping it would get better? Well no... It wouldn't... So yeah, it would lead to that eventually. It would either be ppl super happy or supper sad! So i think it would be boring.
Yeah, you might be right 😂. If it was all determined that might be the case indeed 😥... But say it isn't (you could also run from your destiny) and say you love that person and say the purpose scares you, but it isn't so bad 🤷
Isn't that the same as how we live now? 😂
Or you know what's gonna happen and you can either avoid it or live it? Is it something like that? Cuz if that's the case it's really boring as well 😛
@Alte Well Sir (or Madame) ... I already know the answer to this since I have been a Fool all of my life.....
So for me , I would have to go fool ... it's what I am , it's what I know , it's how I make situations become bearable for me and others.
