Human beings have built up an incredible endurance to loss and unfairness over the millenniums. It has become second nature to submit and accept without reservation the crap that comes our way. We hope for the best but a general feeling of pessimism floats around the atmosphere like unseen dirt particles making their way deeper and deeper past our nostril hairs only eventually to clog our breath of life. Pathetically, the loss and unfairness are looked at as though they must be God’s will and it is our duty to endure—until we reverse the picture and take a stand to endure the fight for success and fairness.
As a Bible reader, I am familiar with the verses that applaud suffering and how suffering produces endurance and hope, but because we all read the parts we want to read in the Bible, I’m going to quote from Romans, “What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means.” (Romans 6:1-2, ESV)
What is sin? Big question that has yet to really be defined clearly, however I’m tempted to believe that suffering is a sin. I already know that sin produces suffering. Envy, hate, and stupidity are always traceable to some kind of suffering. But what about those times when the innocent suffer?
I’ve healed innocent animals and pets quickly through prayer on the metaphysical basis that suffering is sin. Suffering is not God’s will. Moreover suffering doesn’t glorify God. The elimination of suffering or sin, does glorify God.
The same prayer is used for human beings. We weren’t meant to endure suffering. It is not God’s will or way of teaching us a spiritual lesson. In fact, we are pretty worthless as servants of God when we are suffering so the natural conclusion would be that God wants to heal suffering. We were however meant to endure glorifying God in our everyday life and thereby overcome suffering.
From 21st Century Science and Health, “Suffering, self-destructive, dying beliefs are unreal. When divine Science is universally understood, a negative consciousness will have no power over us, for we are spiritual and live by divine authority.”
