Sound like a pipe dream?
(“Pipe dream” is a slang term generally referring to a plan or hope that is generally regarded as impossible. The term originated in the 19th Century in reference to the hallucinations caused by the opium people smoked in pipes. But I digress. Worse than usual, you might suggest.)
While we’re doing the definition of terms thing, let’s define these terms too.
ERADICATE: to remove or destroy utterly
BIBLE: the inspired Word of God
POVERTY: deficiency of necessary or desirable ingredients, qualities, etc.
And no, I don’t think it’s a pipe dream. Honestly.
I also think…in fact, I KNOW, that you can be a part of making this happen.
