I thought I’d better do what I can to get this important warning out to everyone I can. I don’t have a big readership. Most of you know me personally…but still, every little bit helps.
Agape Press informs me that only Evangelical Fundamentalist (real) Christians can bring true comfort to the afflicted.
Anyone else, especially His Holiness The Dali Llama, who tries to bring comfort to the afflicted actually brings them more danger than their afflictions, and adds to their burden through “false” comfort. Shame on them.
So, if you are trying to be good and do the right thing, and help people, but you don’t believe that they will burn in hell unless they feel repressed, guilty and weak – and can bend their brain around a Gordian knot of contradiction and illogic – stop trying to help. You’ll only make things worse.
So, as April 17th approaches, Christians across the country will be praying for the afflicted in the Mayo Clinic. They will be praying, not for healing of the afflicted…or for God to guide the hands of the doctors, or for inspiration as to what they can do for those poor people. Nope, they will be praying that these people don’t fall into the trap of being comforted and inspired by this non-believer who is usurping…usurping I say…the power of the people of God who are the only ones truly able to bring relief to those poor people.
I mean, it’s not as if the Bible says WE’RE supposed to visit the afflicted or anything. We’re busy being pious, home schooling our children and passing laws to make public libraries protect our children from pornography (put that copy of The Great Gatsby in the opaque plastic bags that pornography like that belongs in, mister, or I’ll report you to Homeland Security and shred your library card.)
But just because we aren’t doing it, doesn’t mean that the Dali Llama should. Without any alternatives to choose from, the poor people might just grasp at straws and get converted to Buddhism. So, if you don’t believe what you should…stay out of it. If you DO believe what you should, pray that God will take away all other alternatives that might offer “false” comfort. Because getting out there and offering the “true” alternative is just too darn much work.
The only way to tell the truth is to first take away all the lies. Whether we do that through the power of prayer or the power of the “law”…it doesn’t matter. First, we have to eliminate all the lies…and THEN the truth will be known. Until then, why bother?
