We Are Not Object Lessons

“I think this is part of how God shows us to be grateful, you know? For what we have. For our health. To teach us.”

This was the response that someone gave me after I was lamenting about the unfairness of disease and catastrophe.

The idea that people are sick in order to be object lessons for people who are not is one of the many problems that we have with narcissistic religion and a form of Christianity that is totally devoid of deep spirituality.

It becomes cruel.

People are not sick in order to teach you a lesson.
