Sorry couldn’t help using that phrase from the movie “A Few good Men.” Many in today’s society have developed a type of thin skin. They get locked into their little world and if anything disrupts it or challenges it is something to be hated and derided.
Many claim they are “tolerant” yet when it comes time to be that way they show themselves to be hypocrites. They wish to live in this perfect world of their own creation. Not caring if they are wrong or hurt others for they are not a part of their little sphere. This goes back to some of my earlier post which I state that the ultimate sin is selfishness. For from being selfish all other sins germinate. I still hold to that believe and it is one of those thing no human can truly loss, for at one time or another you will do something selfish.
It is amazing that when you fully read the Bible you learn in time that over and over God and even Jesus Christ try to show the reader that being unselfish is the purist and best way to look at and live life. This is the truth and most cannot handle it, and that is truly and deeply sad.
Mark 12: 30 – 31 – And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Philippians 2: 3- Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Romans 12: 10 – Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
James 4: 10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
Matthew 23: 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
