I am getting so tired of people spewing random conjecture as if it were fact. But, that’s usually more a symptom of complicated thought processes encoded into a few short phrases in order to quickly convey a point. My biggest beef is the people that intentionally market their own brand of blanket-blaming. Calling out entire sub cultures or sub categories of people groups and blaming them all for specific atrocities. Racism, sexual insults, religious bashing, sexism, blah blah blah. I would love to see more random comments from complete strangers that lead to new thoughts, or anything nice. Anything whatsoever that is complimentary or self aware or non-toxic. Please, people. It’s difficult, but it can be done.

Amen. 12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial that has come upon you, as though something strange were happening to you.…Berean Study Bible · Download
