JUSTICE?

July 18, 2017

God has a strong opinion on justice, as His Word declares.  “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Thy throne.”  “He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.”  “But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”  “Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand all things.”

Unfortunately, a document, (the Charter of Rights and Freedoms) that once was intended to protect and support the innocent, misused and misunderstood, has become an instrument of crass injustice in the hands of unscrupulous lawyers and befuddled judges.  The most bizarre decisions are being made to accommodate the immoral behaviour of a few individuals, while disregarding the wellbeing and rights of others.  Democracy only survives when its law-givers, leaders and followers have a common sense of right and wrong, good and evil, and a standard from which to find foundation and guidance.  Increasingly, that has been undermined as absolutes are trashed and relativism rules, thereby weakening the whole.

For the most part, Western Democracies once claimed the Bible and its principles of behaviour as that standard.   It made our nations great, responsible, prosperous and free.  The more we abandon that thinking and its influence, the more we spiral into political, moral, social and spiritual chaos.  Observant, thinking people can only be concerned by the direction our nation is going and what is increasingly happening all around us!

Bad enough is the sexual perversion of a strangely influential minority.   Soon we shall add to that the insane approval of a mind-altering drug, sponsored by governments, simply to find another source of revenue.  Now, a new twist is the unconscionable reward to a Muslim terrorist of many millions of dollars – the people’s money – not just wasted but blatantly abused!  No legal obligation required it.  No strings were attached as to its use!  A small, private circle of government officials, unconsidered by the House of Commons – the people’s court – made a decision to bestow it on a child/man.  Their motive?  He was jailed and denied sleep for some information that could possibly save lives in a war zone.

He has been rewarded simply because he was young in our culture, though not at all in his.  His very religious family, guided him into a path of hatred, killing and blind obedience to their view of truth.  He was doing the will of his god.   No one knows how many others he might have killed nor who they might be.  Our extended family lost a grandson and father of two children in that war!  And, because no one knows his heart, we know not when, where or if he might do it again.  He certainly has the means!  Our leaders have honoured radical Islam, and probably given it more millions to do its wicked work.  “What fools we mortals be!”

Democracy requires an understanding of the common good.   It was denied its vital role in this situation.  A few select people, in a private setting, without consultation beyond their partisan point of view, made an evil decision to give a wayward young man more money than seventy-five percent of all Canadians will earn in a lifetime of hard work – by three or four times!   That is a travesty of commonsense and an injustice so outrageous as to defy explanation.   No better example could be listed of a government’s indifference to, or ignorance of, its bewildered constituents.

“Evil men do not understand justice . . .”
