A Great Sorrow: More Clearly Defined

“You say, ‘I am innocent; he is not angry with me.’ But I will pass judgment on you because you say, ‘I have not sinned.’” {Jeremiah 2:35 NIV}

It was brought unto my attention that there is something to add unto “The Source Of My Great Sorrow”. For it is not about just being almost completely ignored: even though that is more than enough to be greatly sorrowful about. For who from amongst us can afford to assume that they have no need of what I have been given to say{1}???

No, this is not to discount the fact that it may very well be that what I have to say is really nothing more than the ranting and raving of just another self-anointed apostle of Christ{2}; but am I not worth saving{3}??? For if I am not: who is{4}???

In other words: no one can make a claim that what they have been given to say is of the Lord and not be in grave danger of eternal damnation if it is not{5}; and it is because of being made so painfully aware of just how much far too many do not care about others that is also at the root of my great sorrow. For there are many who would seek to put me in my place if I am allowed and enabled to actually get in their way; but who wants to come unto my rescue{6}???

No, this is not meant to encourage any wrong-doing. For the absolute truth of the matter truly is that none of us are expected to actually save anyone from anything—nor even to lead them unto the One who can deliver them from their troubles; but we are called to help{7}.
