So many different Bibles explaining GOD'S WILL for us; and even more "interpretations and explanations" of what each means. The children of GOD are being taught contrary doctrines from the same "texts". We are warned, threatened and intimidated until we "pull back" from any Biblical teaching. Do we really think that "bad things" happen to "good people" to "punish" us? Suffering and loneliness does NOT make us more dear to GOD. The agony of the SOUL takes away our worldly interests and our FULL FOCUS is on GOD. Our prayers become GODLY Prayers where we surrender earthly idols and desire only the HOLINESS OF GOD. 2 Corinthians 7:9, "...I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because you were grieved into repenting". IS OUR PAIN, GODLY SORROW OR WORLDLY SORROW? No interpretation needed, IT IS WHAT IT IS.
