It is sensitive issue yet puzzle me sometimes. We pray our god still we behave differently than OUR god. I will take some examples.
Forgiveness is key to Christianity. Jesus died preaching it. "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." . Most of America pray him. Yet they elect Donald Trump, attack Iraq, Afghanistan etc.
Sulking is common. People avoid conflict and honest discussion. People avoid it sometimes as they are not confident about values and stand they take. Sometime they don’t have debate tricks. Lawyers have capabilities to probe wrong as right. That is biggest threat to truth. By efficient communication, you can show the world that you are right.
In Bhagwat Gita, there is a story of Krishna and Sudama, their friendship and their life long commitments for each other. People still treat their friendship as reference point in history. In modern day , it is rare now. It may be because of change in social dynamics.
IIT result is out. Boys are celebrating its result. It is one of the toughest exam in the world. I saw its physics paper. It is of time of Newtonian mechanics. Physics has change a lot , from Newton to Einstein. Now, post Einstein model of gravity is being discussed. Ampere / Faraday laws of magnetism have changed to Maxwell equations. Forces and their dynamics have changed.
It is getting clearer that subject marks are not a guarantee of success. It is mostly centred around to fulfil jobs. Survival has become a priority for many. There is rising inquality in society and there is almost no growth of lower 50% of society. Jobs are shrinking and their nature is changing.
