The Civility of Indifference

The dissolution of Yugoslavia inspired F. G. Bailey to consider the relations among ethnic groups that had seemed reconciled to living together and then broke into murderous conflicts. For his exploration of the ancient, recurring problem of ethnic strife, Bailey considers the village of Bisipara in the state of Orissa, in eastern India. Bisipara was a community in which different ethnic groups were seen as distinct breeds of people, arranged in a hierarchy of worthiness. In The Civility of Indifference, Bailey documents a case of ethnic strife that threatened the village forty years ago but did not consume it in bloodshed. The restraint, he suggests, reflected not compassion but a sense of inevitability. The people of Bisipara perceived the world in such a way that violence enacted as ethnic cleansing would have seemed to them a disastrous indulgence and a sure path to self-destruction. Their story serves as a parable of pragmatic indifference, in contrast to the fanaticism that justifies civil war. A seasoned ethnographer, the author considers the social structure of the community, examining the multiple castes with sensitivity and respect. His detailed description reveals the competing moral visions held by various groups and his conclusions open a new perspective on ethnic violence.

A preface is best written last, after a book is done and its author may look back to survey what he hopes he has accomplished and what he must admit he has not. In hindsight virginity by itself has seemed a very large field to till, but with that reflection also comes a sense of the awareness that a really comprehensive treatment of misgiving, that subject would somehow have to encompass an enormous ter rain, the whole length and breadth of Christianity's attitude toward sexuality from the earliest times down to the high Middle Ages. It could be argued that no small book could cover so much ground, and I would be the first to agree. As its subtitle is meant to suggest, the present work is, in at least two senses of the word, an essay: both an initial and tentative effort to get at the meaning of an extremely important but as yet unprobed medieval belief in the perfective value of the virginal life; and an interpretive study of a complex subject from a limited point of view, specifically, that in which the virgin appears in devotional literature as the bride of Christ.

Without born-again, no eye shall see the kingdom of God. Born-again brings you into the program of God; without born-again you are outside the program of God and your prayer is an abomination to God. Your identity as a born-again gives you the passage/way to the journey to the kingdom of God. It is the fundamental/basic stage of Christiandom. Without you having Christ in you, you have no business with God, no program with God and Holy Ghost have no business with you, for it is the word of God that Holy Ghost sees in man to visit Him. The Word is the light that illuminates the man as house thereby attracts the attention of the Holy Ghost. Without the Word the man is full of darkness an evidence of emptiness or enemy occupant. Christ in you is your hope of glory. Bear in mind therefore that the status of born-again is more precious than all the treasures of the world put together. Protect and cherish it, strive to grow and develop it. This is a treasure in earthen vessel. Man is the earthen vessel containing the treasure (Jesus, the Word of God)
