|Rancorous, truculent non-believers feel besieged by the truth, I suspect and have developed a hate-filled siege mentality, and don’t bitterly resent the intrusion of ‘inconvenient’ truths ; and particularly not the one that underpins all the others, and would turn their lives around through 180 degrees. And very akin to that is a failure to appreciate spiritual, moral beauty as sovereign, and ultimately to reject it.|
They have my sympathy. Well, to a certain rather limited extent, admittedly. The other day, I mentally yelled at God at the top of my voice and shook both my fists at him, since, as I was saying one set of prayer, I felt him urging me to interrupt them for a more urgent one, and that on top of something else that was troubling me at the back of my mind – which I can’t remember. Fortunately, God does seem to cut me a lot of slack on occasions.
Sometimes I think Job might not have had it so bad – then I remember that he lost all his children, all so dear to him ; and above all, Job is held to be a figure of Christ himself, whose sufferings we can scarcely begin to imagine.
I do enjoy being told what I think. Especially by someone who knows me as well as Axel does.
