Hand them a Bible (if they could read) and all perhaps all would be swell; as its worked for centuries (something direly wrong with this
objective of WHAT; nomenclature DISINGENUOUS).
How does the Bible feed them or purify their water, exactly? How does it make life physical better for them at all? They will still die, but they will
think something is waiting for them on the other side. That's all that's different. It changes death for them. End of story. I don't see that as being
a huge blessing in a tormented life.
BIBLE does not. For some; the understanding (or at least for the missionaries there to help) is supposed to give a fuzzy 'unreality/reality of Hope';
that being the return of the KING and his potencial Kingdom ON? NO NOT ON EARTH as I see it. Perhaps its a blessing said over gravesites and those
potencials. The observers (if listening closely to the admonition: "If you believeth in me yee shall have everlasting life", and IF they understood
this ONE significant part of Christs teaching THE HAIL MARY BOMB might arrive at that locale (an invisible heavenly construct). If it changes the
brutality of their life struggle and know that the misery of starvation, totalitarianism, and helplessless is comforted by words from strangers (they
willingly accept them) its a good thing but on the face of it all is ridiculous. God IF existing could/should end all suffering NOW if it desired to;
why is IT dragging its feet regarding the simplist fix EVER. JUST End Torment by PROVIDING FOR. Most third world nations know no different, its just
an everyday activity finding a clean water source. God gets away with this as the people know no difference one way or another. The beauty is in the
ignorance of its audience. What is the Point of it all? Why does Jesus of Nazareth have to be Gods mouthpiece, as HE was IS not God, and has not saved
the world but added to the conflict or division; defining FACTIONS of belief systems that clearly butt heads.
