Long suffering is the sting of truth understood and wisdom applied. It is the product of sober eyes and honest assessment.
Afraid to live yet compelled to survive...
Terrified of love yet desperate to embrace it...
Petrified of pain yet dwelling in affliction...
Long suffering produces endurance to persevere and sustains in us a right spirit before our Holy God. It is endured only by the grace of God and His mercy towards mankind. It is a product of balance. A balance where man is submitted to God, even in weakness, and God’s power is demonstrated thru man as overcoming strength. So often we deceive ourselves and others when we take the credit for our accomplishments or praise others for theirs. It is how we glorify man and deny the power of God.
Remember that apart from God we can do nothing.
Understanding Humanity & Christianity
There is logic behind all human behavior. Christianity was never intended to be above rational thought; and what is good & evil, right or wrong, is best understood by what we have individually seen, heard and experienced. So how can we discern the difference? What is the logic behind some of the most atrocious acts of violence or crimes against humanity? What logic or "good" could there be to evils like murder and war? How real is spirituality and what role does it play in human behavior? Follow us here as our Visionary attempts to explain and expand awareness to the powerful and painful complex realities of the human experience and biblical controversies.
