What I meant actually was more along the lines of actual human suffering. If you really think about it our poor in America are really not so poor if you include some people in Africa or India who live on pennies per day literally starving to death. Even me writing this comment on my laptop which cost over $1,000 is incredibly self indulging and completely unnecessary in the grand scheme of things. I guess what I'm saying is, nobody really believes or takes seriously the message of Jesus Christ. We go on with our day literally living in luxury (even if it doesn't appear so compared to our equally wealthy neighbors) as children in other countries are dying of treatable diseases and starving to death.
I feel that not a single one of us is the kind of person Jesus wants us to be, we are selfish and either don't realize it, or just don't care. And I'm not sure which is worse.
I might go as far as to say that American Christians are plain hypocrites.
