That position might not be too easy to defeat or to even controvert, Sir Kay. The next thing will be the question as to where we go from here if humanity is to be eventually saved. The issue of where we go from here, Beejay, if humanity is to be saved eventually is not a matter we could thrash out or easily discuss and conclude so easily on the run like that. I definitely do not have an answer and am sure you have none either. It is a problem for the entire world to solve. I know you cannot bring the entire world together in a round table trying to find an answer, but it will definitely involve the entire world one way or the other. How exactly it will happen I wont know. But lets take a look at this scenario. Just as man, the devil, made his way through the Almighty God, some extremely good ones cant but make their way through the devil called man. Some of these few ones might not survive the ordeal of the devil. The devil might run these some down eventually. Some, still extremely few some, and of course with His Grace, would survive it all to the end. But these survivors will not escape from all forms of tortures and sufferings from the matter called humanity because of the devil in him. The greatest tormentors will be the closest allies of various individuals. It is the spread of the tortures and sufferings from these few that will continue to develop into all sorts of problems that will continue to multiply and spread all over the world or several given worlds of the world. The whole world is infected through this spreading process. Human beings are the carriers that disperse these problems all over the world. The problems travel like the air or wind, consummate in consuming all matters along its course. Nobody enjoys any form of immunity. One is infected both directly and indirectly, following the injection of the problems. The problems are like poison. The indirect problems are most unavoidable but less poisonous. To some reasonable extent, the direct ones are avoidable but they are the most poisonous. The more careless one is, the more prone to the direct attacks one is. The whole mathematics of avoidance of global problems could be worked out by individuals and families to a large extent. But when it gets to communities and beyond, the mathematics becomes more complex. Sir Kay, dont you think were getting a little too technical? You might have to make a few clarifications before our moving forward could have any meaning. Otherwise, we would be far from communicating. Beejay, I know you will always want to be funny. In any case, if your interest is to make me to repeat myself in a way, I wont mind it. I can remember I talked about injection and infection of problems both directly and indirectly. Well, human beings are the ultimate carriers of all earthly problems. They too got infected one way or the other, directly or indirectly. As they move around, they continue to inject these problems into the earthly system either advertently or inadvertently. The direct infection is the situation under which a clean or uninfected individual gets into direct contact with the infected or affected one. The problem gets transferred from the affected to the unaffected. We are talking mostly of social or socioeconomic problems here rather of medical problems or diseases. Examples are those of drunkards, fraudsters, all sorts of criminal activities, and so on. To be friends or be in any form of direct association with any of those people in the act, the tendency is to get influenced directly. This is the direct infection that we are talking about. Those that are in these acts are injecting their acts into the public. Some youths that see some other youths making it start to be directly imitating these youths directly or start devising similar ways of making it too. In this case, the emerging fraudsters or criminals of various categories do not have to learn from any individual criminals but from the public scenes or the system. This is what we describe as injection resulting into indirect infection of problems. This is a major channel of spreading various problems in the socio-economic system. I remember mentioning the categories of people that are more or less prone to getting infected. It is generally said that evil communication corrupts good manner. Naturally, one has to be exposed to a disease directly or indirectly before one could be infected. The same thing applies under our present situation. Some categories of people are reserved. They could have a few friends and socialize occasionally, but they are very selective. Such categories of people are not likely to get easily infected. They constitute themselves into public assets. But there is another category of people that have no taste with respect to socializing. They might not be bad originally but due to the categories of people that they choose to associate with, they get infected and constitute themselves into public nuisance or liability. They even carry such infections to their family members and other associates as the community continues to suffer from the spread. Beejay, should you want me to still continue, I wont mind. I know I also spoke of working out the calculus or the mathematics of avoidance. Having explained the calculus of infection, I believe I do not need to say much on that of avoidance. If we know the categories of people we could mingle or associate with to get into trouble, the most elementary logic will show us that every effort to avoid having anything to do with such people would mean efforts to avoid problems or getting into trouble. Lets take that as good as settled. Maybe, finally, Beejay, is the issue of religion. The question is whether or not prayers or christian religious living standards will help. Some points need to be first clarified. Prayers and christian religion living standards are not one and the same thing. They are different. As to whether such would help also needs to be clarified. Help what or help who? If these seemingly minor points are not clarified, then, we dont know what we are saying or doing. Frankly speaking, prayer wont help anything in this matter. Praying, maybe plus fasting, are meant for and to help believers. When discussing the universe, individual salvation is what matters. If the whole world could gather together and start praying for a single unbeliever, such praying will come to nothing but nullity. If this is the case, how much worthless will be the case of an individual or too few a group of people praying for the entire world? A single community constitutes a universe for instance. The story changes not. The issue of christian living standard is relevant. True christian members are not part of the general world. They constitute another world entirely. Simply put, for them to be easily infected or contaminated is not possible. They dont even look at the world; they therefore know not what is going on in the world. It will be easier for them to inject their norms into the world. The converse is most unlikely to be correct. That the christians refuse to mix with and relate or interact freely with the public is a minus for christianity. It is a fact there is supposed to be evangelism. But how many acts of evangelism are visibly operating on the streets? christians are unnecessarily over-reserved. It is the programming of christian leadership that makes that happen. They do not trust the faith of their followership. They are afraid that if they allow their followers to mix freely with the world, that the world or opposing denominations might snatch their members away from them for one thing. For another, they are afraid that too much freedom for their members might lead them to corruption or backsliding. All what these amount to is that they see their members as people of little faith. What the church leadership needs for their members is not physical withdrawal or restraint. What they need in the alternative therefore is spiritual fire rekindling. As far as the fire in their members is rekindled, fueled, and continually refueled and left burning indiscriminately, Good God, nothing will touch any of them. Unl
