Punishing The Innocent

John 8:32: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Many are prisoners and victims of falsehood and evil. They are their own worst enemies as well as harmful to others.

Isaiah 5:20a: Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; . . .

The Bible explains the eventual and inevitable unhappy result of what many people do in our time. Woe unto them . . . Often they punish the innocent and reward the guilty.

Guilty criminals, including murderers, are sometimes freed because a police officer, a judge or a clerk made a mistake. How about appropriately giving the police officer, judge or clerk a slap on the wrist for their mistakes without rejecting the truth they provided about a murderer? Truth is the issue, not the perfection of the ones who provide it. At least 50 percent of attorneys involved in trials are always seeking injustice. That fifty percent are worse morally than the police officers, judges and clerks that they take advantage of. If the fifty percent of attorneys seeking injustice could be punished along with their clients this would be a better world. Some good news! When they stand before the Lord they will be.

2 Thessalonians 3:10: For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

Government is distant from people and not wise enough to know the difference between one who will not work and one who cannot. Until government learns the difference between the unfortunate and the lazy, taxpayer money will be stolen and wasted. Neither is government wise enough to know the difference between those who cannot buy health insurance and those who will not.

Those who buy medical insurance are required to buy it for the ones who cannot and will not. We don*t mind helping those who cannot help themselves but why should we help those who will not.

Those who cannot buy medical insurance are criminalized along with those who will not.

Why not criminalize those who won*t work and those who won*t take care of their health as well?

Robin Hood was a thief. If he made personal gains he was also a parasite. If the poor he gave money to were able but unwilling to take care of themselves, he was a fool and they were his accomplices.

Innocent unborn babies are killed so irresponsible parents won*t be inconvenienced.

Many of the same folks who support destroying innocent unborn babies want leniency for guilty murderers.

Killing some terrorists is considered heroic but splashing water in the face of other terrorists is considered horrible.

Many want to keep guilty murderers alive. Innocent taxpayers are forced to support them. (Even the loved ones of the victims are taxpayers.) I wonder if there would be fewer murderers kept alive if those who want them kept alive had to support them.

I recently received an email that listed some other injustices: If a man cuts his finger off while slicing salami at work, he blames the restaurant. If you smoke three packs a day for 40 years and die of lung cancer, your family blames the tobacco company. If your neighbor crashes into a tree while driving home drunk, he blames the bartender. If your grandchildren are brats without manners, you blame television. If your friend is shot by a deranged madman, you blame the gun manufacturer. If a crazed person breaks into the cockpit and tries to kill the pilot at 35,000 feet and the passengers kill him instead, the mother of the crazed deceased blames the airline.

Ultimately, God delivers His people from the crazies.

Psalms 97:10: Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
