hm, so we should be content with the fact that life entails suffering, and that suffering is a necessary component to our existence? should we not work to improve upon our conditions opposed to allowing them to persist, with faith in God as a consolatory to these pervasive problems? i thought Jesus preached the uplifting of the downtrodden and impoverished not the acceptance of their position. this explanation seems counter-intutive to Christian doctrine. the Buddhist interpretation of suffering seems superior to this supposition.

+Christopher Stefanick I could tell from the video you were speaking more towards the relationship of the suffering and the individual, I wasn't sure if you were extending the argument to encompass the totality of suffering, hence my previous comment. Also, your definition of the Buddhist interpretation is inaccurate and misleading, although I admire that the comment was made out of deference for those who may believe in its principles. Buddhists believe that all life is suffering, (as you elaborated on in both in your comment and the video) but that this suffering can be transcended by the vigilant individual. A solution is superior to a coping strategy for suffering from my perspective. And for an individual to rely solely on an outside force to absolve them of their suffering opposed to addressing the problem itself directly seems counter productive and fatalistic, should we not work to improve upon our conditions through practical means opposed to praying that they will be resolved?
