    I'm not saying I haven't gotten upset and done wrong
    I've had family and friends who seem to get away with a bunch of bullying and if you have associations with the community everyone takes their friend's side
    Everyone gets upset and tries to not take responsibility or act mature

    The police and social justice warriors have bias to take sides, such as in my case people would take sides of people who would act mean in private so even if I'd complain I'd be told to not complain. No way to win...and the mean things continues

    If you can be born again and away from sinners who try to treat you like garbage as if they own you but don't take care of what they own...well I'll say sinners don't really know any better but never learn as they hate what's good and love the thrill of sin and power of being called right including imitating weeping as if repentant.
    The world is so tricky because you might think on the outside and all the words people say they really believe. Even in my case, since I'm like the neighbor and I could be hiding that I'm aggressive to my own family (I'm only 23 so I don't have one yet if at all but for example).

    You can't just snap your fingers and do good. And even if you do good, and spread a doctrine/gospel, it's very important to spread the right one. Most people say as long as they read the Bible...people might repent...I'm saying there's actually much more than people realize.
    Adults think they've seen it all and start talking in situations as if they hold authority.
    And most kids talk like their parents and defend them.
    I'm just saying there's drugs and sex for example you can't just explain to someone...it's just words. And not that feelings and emotions of a man is where faith is. I'm saying how little people know...yet preach long sermons finally to say "love your neighbor, love God, get money, be holy". And at face value that's nice

    such a lot of woes...
    12 “What sorrow awaits you who build cities
    with money gained through murder and corruption!
    13 Has not the Lord of Heaven’s Armies promised
    that the wealth of nations will turn to ashes?
    They work so hard,
    but all in vain!
    but then in verse 14...

    3:18,19
    18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
    I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!

    19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
    He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
    able to tread upon the heights.

    yet I will rejoice...the end of Habakkuk's prayer, evil does not triumph, God is in control.

    3 This prayer was sung by the prophet Habakkuk

    2 I have heard all about you, Lord.
    I am filled with awe by your amazing works.
    In this time of our deep need,
    help us again as you did in years gone by.
    And in your anger,
    remember your mercy.

    A lovely prayer accompanied by string instruments

    and the last 2 verses

    18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
    I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
    19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
    He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
    able to tread upon the heights.
