Judged by a jury of peers


 

This question might have crossed your minds at some point in your life; if god is so kind and forgiving then what is up with the whole torment and fire in the afterlife? Well I come to came to a conclusion and even though it’s only my opinion, I think it’s something to ponder upon.

    So if god is really that kind, and will forgive all of our wrong doings if we ask for forgiveness, why should we worry about our deeds? Well here is the catch, even that God is merciful, but he is also fair and just. He will forgive us for disobeying what he asked us to do for ourselves which only concerns him. But would it be fair if he forgives me on your behalf if I’ve done wrong to you? Obviously the answer is no.

    Every person will be judged by his or her own kind. Whether it is cutting in line, thinking you’ve been clever to come in last and leave first, simply parking in a no parking zone, causing traffic, or taking students time by being selfish, every single person who’s time you’ve wasted have the right to hold you accountable. Therefore if they are not willing to forgive you then you are in trouble. The reason is that God, as I’ve come to know him is very sensitive when it comes to the rights of other human beings.

    If you think you are a good person and you’ve done your religious obligations, don’te dare thinking other people don’t mind you trying to take away their rights in any way. Many of those whom you did wrong will ask for the justice to be done.

    Here in the end I would like to add that this system has a great social effect on people. Knowing those who did wrong are to be punished mitigates your urge to seek revenge, resulting in a violence free and healthy society. So, whether you believe in the afterlife or just believe that what happens to us in this life is a reflection of your deeds, try to go that extra mile and respect other human beings. Also don’t feel bad when you are offended by people. Deep inside believe they will pay for their actions and let it go.
