In Reference to: 16 August 1992 - BEING A CHRISTIAN CAN MAKE A PERSON FEEL LONELY IN THIS WORLD
We need to change our perception of "lonely." Once we can come to terms with the fact that God loves everyone, including sinners, we can begin to grow -- and begin to shine a light that is so bright it cannot be ignored. We can then draw others to us!
We, as vegetarians, tend to isolate ourselves because of our own discomfort with those around us. This only serves to create "division." Jesus did not isolate Himself. Jesus went out among the masses, regardless of their lifestyle and beliefs. He hugged them all. He welcomed them all. He forgave them all.
The nature of human beings is to resist change. Change means stepping into the "unknown." Change "implies" that there is something wrong with us. People don't like that feeling.
It's a walk -- longer for some than others. Scripture tells us that we must drink milk before we can eat meat (metaphorically speaking). Gently help others with their walk. Walk with them at a pace that they can comfortably handle. You may be the vegetarian, but even the vegetarian isn't perfect. Perhaps others that we share our walk with can share something very enlightening themselves!
