POEM: Good News, Bad News

I have good news and bad news
The bad news:
called and he said he wants his back
The good news:
He didn’t call collect

The gap between the actual practice of and the principles held dear by every major in the world requires to be reconciled.  The relatively popular and all-too-common view that is punishing is perhaps the most fundamental misconception in is does not seek to punish.  If you want to punish people, please recognize that that impulse is not in alignment with ’s will.  The desire to punish others is a misguided human impulse.  Attributing your own desire to hurt others — or, conveniently, have another punish them for you — only adds insult to injury.  The belief in is the perfection of projecting human shortcomings onto .  There is plenty of to go around, created by humans on earth.  Wanting to see further misery added to this is simply sadistic.  The gospel, literally “good news,” is that when God calls it won’t be as a collector, but rather as a lover seeking to woo you into a deeper relationship.  Now that’s a call I can answer!
