Both are monsters guilty of (tear)gassing innocent people.
I just got out from the bible discussion and I am CONVICTED about boredom.
In short it speaks about John 10:10
The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
A full life is not a happy life, it is not a sad life, it is not a bored life, it is not an exciting life. It is all of those, all the emotions that you can feel and express.
and being bored all the time means that I am losing all the opportunity to do good. Boredom causes us to not do good and leads to us being weary
Let us not become weary in doing good,for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers
Not doing good and being bored is a symptom of being a hired hand because the heart is not invested in its purpose. He just dont care
John 10:11 13
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. 13 The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep
I wonder if I have really took the time out to care for people’s spiritual health during this pandemic. I do not wish to be like the hired hand that lost the sheep to wolves because I did not care.
This is a lovely lesson from Luke which I have condensed.
DM to show that you care for the lost and you don’t wish to be bored anymore!
13And they sent to him some of the Pharisees and some of the Hero'di-ans, to entrap him in his talk. 14And they came and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are true, and care for no man; for you do not regard the position of men, but truly teach the way of God. Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not? 15Should we pay them, or should we not?” But knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, “Why put me to the test? Bring me a coin, and let me look at it.” 16And they brought one. And he said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” They said to him, “Caesar’s.” 17Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they were amazed at him.
“All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling must be removed from you, along with all malice. And be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.” - Ephesians 4:31-32
When I observe how certain Christians react to Black Lives Matter, I can only conclude that the Church contains corrupted tables which need to be flipped and people who deserve to be whipped.
“so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.” [NIV]

The Fifth Day
On the fifth day, the Lord brings forth all of the creatures of the skies and seas. For the first time, birds take wing in the open firmament of the heavens, the waters teem with fish, and great whales roam the oceans. “Increase and multiply,” the Lord commands, “fill the waters of the sea, and let the birds be multiplied upon the earth.” (Genesis 1:20–23)
The Sixth Day
On the sixth day, the Lord forms man in his own image. As a sign of their special relationship, He grasps Adam’s arm and, before the assembled creatures of the earth, charges him with dominion over the world and all of its inhabitants. (Genesis 1:24–31)
The Creation of Woman; The Tree of Knowledge
Soon after, the Lord puts Adam in Paradise and draws forth Eve from Adam’s side. The pair are enjoined never to eat of the Tree of Knowledge. (Genesis 2:15–18, 21–23)
The Fall from Grace
A subtle, winged serpent with a woman’s head convinces Eve to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. Adam accepts the forbidden fruit from his companion. (Genesis 3:1–6)
Isaiah 25:4 KJV:
“For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.”
