I love the Word

I love the word and message of God to us humans.

From Luke 16

19 There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen; and feasted sumptuously every day.

20 And there was a certain beggar, named Lazarus, who lay at his gate, full of sores,

21 Desiring to be filled with the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table, and no one did give him; moreover the dogs came, and licked his sores.

Starvation

22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom. And the rich man also died: and he was buried in hell.

23 And lifting up his eyes when he was in torments, he saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom:

24 And he cried, and said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, to cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame.

25 And Abraham said to him: Son, remember that thou didst receive good things in thy lifetime, and likewise Lazareth evil things, but now he is comforted; and thou art tormented.

26 And besides all this, between us and you, there is fixed a great chaos: so that they who would pass from hence to you, cannot, nor from thence come hither.

27 And he said: Then, father, I beseech thee, that thou wouldst send him to my father’s house, for I have five brethren,

28 That he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torments.

29 And Abraham said to him: They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

30 But he said: No, father Abraham: but if one went to them from the dead, they will do penance.

31 And he said to him: If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead.

It would be good if we could engineer a fix for this.

God Bless America and the Human Race, please.

Human Agriculture and family

I have visited and spent time on farms in various countries including the United States of AmericaBundesrepublik Deutschland, and République Française.

As we now know, large scale industrialized farming isn’t good for the land, species, and people. While it does provide for a large quantity of foodstuffs, most of those foodstuffs are not good for the human body and mind.

In République Française, I’ve visited farming near Chalon-sur-Saone and local markets that provided foodstuffs. Human families ran the farms, market stalls, and support services. All the foodstuffs are of high quality and organic.

In Bundesrepublik Deutschland, I visited and stayed on a farm in Ettingshausen Reiskirchen that raises cows and corn for the cows.

In Nederlands I saw many farms, of which many were dedicated to the growing of Tulips, as well as cows, pigs, and vegetables.

In Barnard, Vermont, United States I stayed with families that farmed pigs, cows and corn and vegetables.

Of course, farming is hard work. Most humans are allergic to hard work. Just read Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. This is unfortunate. However, organic farming should be strongly supported by educated society for it’s contribution to the quality of life.  The better the community and national support for agriculture, the more technological support for the farm is possible, reducing the amount of work required in many cases.

Life is Good.

God Bless America, please.
