Reflections of a Sojourner: A Journey Into Modern Christianity
We’re sorry but you missed this offer. It is no longer free or a deal.
In a world filled with an abundance of medical knowledge, comfort-based technology, and global communication-resources wherefore comes this image of perpetual suffering and pain? Why have we not resolved the ache, the needs, and the cries of a broken society?
This book offers a pondering on pain and suffering. It reflects the mind of a sojourner, a visitor to this world, a stranger in a strange land, a Christian. It ponders what a man might see if he had vision into the world of spirits and devils, if he had a better understanding of God’s eternal plan for absolute goodness among all mankind.
How great is the profit associated with the promotion of immorality and the punishment thereof? Men savor power and wealth, and we will not easily surrender our position among other men. So long as lucrative plunder remains the product of immorality, evil men will continue to embrace corruption. So long as advantage perceived lingers near, the same people who promote filthy lucre in “acceptable” measures also reap gain when immorality is punished. It is the nature of a depraved mind.
As a people and as a nation, Americans need change. Yet the change we seek is mired beneath the nature of human desires. Active, healthy and Godly correction requires honest and sincere labor from dedicated and involved Christians. Yet we let those who promote depravity retain the judgment over justice. Can you not see? Will you not comprehend? So long as immorality contains even a measure of financial profit, no flesh will seek to fully eliminate the cause and effect of wickedness.
What you read here is a work that I began while residing at Butner Federal Medical Center in Butner, North Carolina. FMC is a US federal hospital dedicated to the treatment and housing of the adult male prison populace. As such, the medical as well as incarceration needs and requirements of those who do battle with the various short-term and long-term diseases, illnesses, and mental disorders that plague the human race are managed by prison guards and professional prison staff members. This service, by nature, places together inmates from all around the USA. FMC houses men of variable security classification. The inmates range from low-level minor offenders to camp-eligible short timers to maximum confinement prison lifers.
For me, the opportunity to minister against the effects of such a broad range of crime is an ever-present calling and blessing. Men come and go, many of which end up listed in the prison records under the heading, “escape by death.” Such is the matter of our social sickness. Such is the modern method for addressing this segment of suffering and death.
I weep for the half-crazed wives who endure the unexpected wrongs of a husband who has brought down the shattering of a peaceful household. I weep for the fatherless child who is being cheated by the ugliness of this world system. I weep for the victims and their families.
And I weep over the torn homes, endless loss of grace, and overwhelming sorrows.
