Sometimes I honestly believe that people have no clue what grief is - it is a journey and not something we can wash off our hearts with soap and water. Maybe, some have never experienced the death of a person close to them. When it happens in their life stark reality will hit.
However, you would think, that those claiming to represent God, would be like the tender, compassionate shepherd that the Bible says religious leaders should be like.
(Acts 20:28-30) "Pay attention to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the holy spirit has appointed YOU overseers, to shepherd the congregation of God, which he purchased with the blood of his own [Son]. I know that after my going away oppressive wolves will enter in among YOU and will not treat the flock with tenderness, and from among YOU yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves."
They should be “gentle” and treat the flock with tenderness, as 1 Thessalonians 2:7, 8 says, "To the contrary, we became gentle in the midst of YOU, as when a nursing mother cherishes her own children. So, having a tender affection for YOU, we were well pleased to impart to YOU, not only the good news of God, but also our own souls, because YOU became beloved to us."
Your question is valid - WHY?
