to take another look.
How many people realize the truth about the way thousands of horses
are routinely caused to suffer and, when they are no longer of use,
disposed of in the most horrible ways imaginable? Where horses are
concerned, the betrayal of trust and the deliberate lies fed to the
public about these gentle animals, both wild and domesticated, are
enormous and can only be described as sociopathic.
What is wrong with people who not only glorify evil activities such
as rodeos, but actually encourage their children to participate in them?
Have you noticed how these abominations are spreading? Crude machismo is
increasingly promoted, instead of kindness and compassion. This is
regression that is bound to have serious negative effects on individuals
as well as on society.
In Matthew 18:5 and following, Jesus warns about such behavior:
“…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble,
it is better for him [or her] that a millstone be hung around his [or
her] neck, and that he [or she] be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe
to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that
stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man [or woman] through whom the
stumbling block comes!”
According to The Amplified Bible, “stumbling blocks” are “temptations
to sin and influences to do wrong” or something that hinders in “right
conduct or thought” or causes to sin.
