condition exists, whether there are theological implications, I once believed this way but recently have my doubts, I would think if anyone stuck their hand in a pot of boiling oil for the atonation of whatever for another person, he would be considered insane, even by the most religous person, but similar acts were common in the dark ages.
If you or I touch a hot pan, we would instinctively jerk back for our own protection. There is really no great physical damage caused by a cluster, afterwards, a person can look and function perfectly normal, but the pain is way out of proportion, I feel this is one of natures dirty tricks and we are the victims of it. I have found no way to jerk back from a cluster, just have to wait patiently (in severe pain) and let it pass, I no of no one that gained from my pain, but many have gained from my charity, I have been struggling with this concept for years, clusters have caused more pain to my kids simply because I could not do things with them and would leave them if I could (would never leave a baby of course or a two year old, kids were old enough and smart enough to know their dad had to be left alone) because my clusters have been an embarrasment to me, I can see no good whatsoever with clusters.
