How big is my world? What countries, what peoples, what languages does it include? Only those that are on our side? Dangerous politics, you say, to believe otherwise?
How big is my world? Where are its boundaries, its roots, its demarcations? Are they limited, confined, circumscribed? How big is my world? Who is its Maker, its Planner, its Architect?
If I say it's Gods world, then I must admit that we, I, have tried to take God's place! I have tried to make a world that is limited to certain peoples, countries, languages; a world confined to certain social and racial boundaries, and lines of separation!
