My  gift to you for the new year. And unless you do some work to unwrap it including downloading the book and reading this chapter It will do you no good. Chapter four I believe. Though you will hopefully want to read the entire book. And I believe something else. When first I read this book many years ago of course I was deeply impressed. But it seemed too incredible to me that I or anyone could consistently make this Choice which seemed so risky, for a better world? And that is still my feeling. But prior to rereading this chapter several weeks ago a different perspective came to me. What if loving is always the superior Human Experience even in the face of suffering, torture, death? And I have since come to the conclusion that in all likelihood this was what Jesus knew and tried to teach us and the people in these stories here although we are not told that.https://www.startloving.org/2020/01/these-stories-of-heroic-redemptive-love.html
Urgent note from James. He, James, find zeze stories deeply moving but without the
following thought really really somewhat interesting, cliche, unimportant. But if one
can entertain the theory of as James is nearly certain now, and preparing himself in every situation to execute, if one can entertain the notion that the Supreme Human Experience is always loving no matter what, then these take on a far more important perspective. And although sadly not in these stories are the actors ask nor in any similar situation has the research been done, the question, would you have done this even if you knew it would materially fail and cost your life? I think it is quite clear that in nearly all cases the answer would be yes. Enter James it is also clear but if they had been asked, well, what if acting this way in no way was a function of your religious Faith would you still do it? It seems to me those in these stories the answer again would be, yes. I like feeling that way. Regardless of the cost.
