You can find the words "sympathy" and "compassion" in the Bible but not "empathy". Why? Because you can have feelings FOR another person but you can't have the feelings OF another person. Empathy is a made up concept pushed by the American Psychological Assoc. (A political activist group) that you lack empathy if you aren't for a centralized socialist government take over. You are lower on the evolution scale if you reject global warming, gay marriage, no religion, gun confiscation, Marxism, etc.
