Lots of complaining going on because of the result of the recent election. Despair from many people, all the way that some expressed their wish to die now, before the US becomes an "even more horrible place" to live in. (I actually heard that phrase).
I was wondering, why the "despair"? Isn't there a saying about the one who laughs last? After all this "miserable" world is just an insignificant interlude before the infinite bliss. :) And if Tertullian is right, one of the important part of that bliss is to "look down" onto the damned in hell, and snicker at their misery - as the good old Schadenfreude "dictates"! Who knows, maybe you will be able to "tease" the damned, thereby increasing their misery and increase your own happiness. Who knows, Tertullian might be right. ;) What a pleasant thought it would be for you. Forget the insignificant problems and look forward the big picture!
I'm sure we'll want to "tease" the damned all right. NOT! I hope you're kidding because otherwise what an awful thing to suggest--well, it's not even funny, so why make it at all? :shrug: No Christian feels superior to those who choose hell instead of heaven. We feel profound sorrow which only the joy of being in God's presence will be able to erase, for after all, why should the damned, who wish to live in hatred for all eternity rob the saved of their joy?
I feel badly about the election because I know that BHO is the worst choice Americans could have made, but unfortunately, we won't realize that until it's too late. We now live in a country in which people are more interested in getting on the dole than on making something of themselves. Our founding fathers and all who worked so hard to make America great who have gone before us are no doubt spinning in their graves. :(
