Endure Glorifying God, Not Suffering

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.”


Invest in the Spirituality of Sufferers

Inspired by the words of spiritual leaders, I become sensitive to the plight of sufferers who are prevented from developing their spiritual power to heal or be healed less intrusively. Their undeveloped talent is a regrettable loss to society. The task to liberate sufferers requires better organization and knowledge of a more scientific healing.

Spiritual Science, like physical sciences, is nothing more or less than a tool for breaking down complex problems into simpler parts that can be analyzed a step at a time. For instance, the general belief that we suffer for our sins is being broken down and a spiritual education is providing people with the power to stop serving pain.

During the scientific research, some sufferers have been found not to be sinners at all. And, once the sinner stops sinning, then the suffering should stop. These realizations can bring relief.

Another complicated, yet backward ideology connected to suffering is that suffering is pious, or good for the soul. However, sufferers are so busy suffering that they are not much benefit to society. Discovering their spiritual strength, sufferers can catapult out of that unscientific ideology.

We can invest in the spirituality of others, even sufferers. We can get mental and moral capital to grow each day and find there is no limit to the advancement made in painless progress. Human beings can’t get out of suffering, but when it does come, we can see it for what it is, an ever-changing unit, that we can exercise control over, instead of letting it control us.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “Religious and medical systems treat physical pains and pleasures as if they are normal, but Jesus rebuked the suffering from any such cause or effect. The epoch approaches when true religion will be built on the truth of being understood. However, people are slow to understand truth because they are obsessed with fashion, pride, and opinion. The fixation of materiality makes us tired because it goes against our higher nature. At some point, we will pierce through the fleeting and false and learn how Spirit, the great architect, has created men and women in Science.”
