The Bearer of the Cross. The Journey of Simon, the Sojourner

In my analysis, it is very easy to punish Simon the Sojourner by simply withholding his monthly retirement income benefit payment and force him to live the rest of his life through painful toil. I remind my readers to give their attention to God’s pronouncement. The ground is “Cursed” to produce thorns and thistles for the Simon as well as to all others who depend on the ground for their living.
