FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN
By Jun Policarpio
GOD OF JUSTICE
The mother of all sins, I may say, is the sin of covetousness. It is the sin that drove Satan to covet God’s throne in Heaven.
Covetousness is defined by dictionary as the unreasonable desire for what we do not possess. The Roman Catholic Church considers it as a capital sin that means a sin that leads to other sins.
When King David coveted his soldier’s wife, Bathsheba, his kingdom broke into pieces and God punished his chosen king one with severe remorse that almost killed him.
Evil man Adolf Hitler coveted a land that did not belong to him. It started the second world war and the Holocaust that slaughtered millions and millions of people.
Now back to politics. What will happen to a candidate who brags to be without sin and who tried to covet another candidate’s political party ballot through unlawful means?
Consider this truth. God is not dead. He’s alive. And He’s a God of Justice.
