As Jesus was dying on the cross he prayed “Father forgive them, they don’t know what they’re doing.”
The Christian world consider’s him God.
The non-Christian world consider’s him a “high level wise man.”
I put these assumptions together and imagine it makes sense.
Jesus was not given “milk of the poppy before his crucifixion.”
I imagine there was a profound lesson in this situation.
If Jesus was God or extremely wise, what does “forgive them, they don’t know what they’re doing mean?”
People do the best that they can with the resources that they have.
If people are clumsy with their words, would it be difficult to imagine that they didn’t have the training you did to be diplomatic with your speech.
If a person was rough, don’t you think they have encountered hardships?
I hated my dad because of how I was treated when I was younger.
If I became really specific, I would come to the conclusion that I didn’t hate him.
He isn’t as evil as I thought to myself.
I was only unable to handle how my dad communicates.
It occurs to me that my dad didn’t practice diplomacy or persuasion with me.
Then again who the hell consciously practices diplomacy or persuasion with family members?
Not everybody does it.
Its a software limitation that is not part of a person’s default program.
It can be copied but it is not built in.
People are not at fault with their conclusions because their choice is not fully their own.
There are other factors involved.
It’s often too complicated to blame others for an event that’s we are not happy with.
Thank you for reading.
