What does justice tempered with mercy mean?

The phrase ‘justice tempered with mercy’ conventionally means to soften or whittle down justice after considering the offender. The act of softening justice has been one of the problems of the society, and its one of the unreasonable practices that have survived numerous generations and times.

Life is system of balance; two sides combining to form one. Reducing a part destroys the balance of life. For example, we perceive light and darkness at different times yet an objective observation shows that both times are lightened; light shines in both the day/light and the night/darkness. Therefore, both the darkness and the light give light for continuity of life. Reducing any part will create total darkness which is tantamount to destroying life instantaneously.

The man and the woman are different yet the man and the woman are one; the positive and negative charges are different yet the negative charge is just a positive charge in another compartment or environment.

The fundamental laws in nature support the fact that life is a balance. Every action must be balanced by an equal and opposite reaction. Every cause is balanced by an effect of equal magnitude. Justice balances offense, therefore equal magnitude of justice must be served for offense to sustain the balance of life. There’s no justice without an offense, and an offense without equal magnitude of justice unbalances life.

Softening or whittling down justice is not a realistic practice yet humans have continued to soften justice based on their connection to and perception of an offender. Softening justice encourages offenses, justice should never be softened by any means irrespective of the offender.                                        

What really happens when things are tempered? Tempering objects strengthens such objects, it increases the internal strength of the materials to withstand conditions that might destroy such materials. Glass, steel and bricks are examples of materials usually tempered to increase strength.

The Bible gives a good illustration of what tempering does to materials during the construction of the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:3). The people knew the implications of building such an edifice with bricks and the impact of environmental conditions at such heights so they tempered the bricks to withstand the effects of harsh conditions and also to strengthen it enough to carry the weight of the building.

Since tempering does not soften a thing but instead strengthens such it, therefore tempering justice can only strengthen it. Justice is strengthened with mercy. In fact the idea of tempering justice with mercy to soften it is both unrealistic and un-objective..

What does the Bible say about tempering justice with mercy? Most people have misconstrued what the Bible says about tempered justice just as they misconstrue most part of the book. They have logically interpreted the purpose of God’s mercy to mean softening justice but the objective evidence of tempering shows that mercy does not soften justice.

What does mercy do to justice? Justice is weak, it does not fully cancel out offenses. Mercy strengthens justice so it can cancel out offense. Justice alone still leaves the offense lingering but mercy tempers justice so that it can completely cancel out offense.

For example: hanging a murderer does not bring back the victim to life, it doesn’t even quench the hurt of the loved ones of the victim. This is justice yet it doesn’t repair the damage done. In fact, justice causes further offense as it hurts the family of the hanged murderer too. So what then is the purpose of justice if it cannot fully balance offense?

Tempering justice with mercy does not soften justice, instead it strengthens justice to enable it to balance offense. While it’s a common practice for humans to try to soften justice, God never soften justice. The mercy of God strengthens or solidifies justice.

God cannot go against his Word; all shall reap what they sow. This is in accordance of the balance of life. A person that takes an action gets the same action in the reverse (as a reaction). Whoever sows a particular cause gets it back in effect. It’s impossible for God to cut the balance of life with mercy, instead God strengthens this balance by solidly establishing it.

What does mercy of God do to a person? While it’s common for humans to reduce justice with mercy, the mercy of God does not reduce justice on a person. The mercy of God strengthens a person so that they can pass through justice without being consumed or destroyed by it. The mercy of God strengthens a person from the inside so that they can go through justice which is stronger than what humans call justice. Those who reject the mercy of God are not strengthened, they’re weak, they shall be consumed and destroyed by the justice of God.

Greatest Sin

What is the greatest sin?

There’s so much misconceptions with the biblical term sin. There’s been so much perception factored into how people interpret the term sin and because of this, most people do not even realize what sin is. Those who do not recognize what sin is cannot even recognize what is the greatest sin of all.

In order to know what is the greatest sin, we must first know what sin is. So the first question is what’s sin?

For many sin is an action: lying, killing, stealing, backbiting, and fornication etc. These are just misconceptions of what sin is. A person who does not kill shall lie, backbite or even fornicate for a reason because sin is neither of these things.

what is sin? There’s a particular part of Bible that makes us question what sin is. This particular verse is Jeremiah 2:13, as at the time when there were so many laws and so many “do not” which people have actually done to be counted to them as sin, God actually said there’s but only two sin. While most people may not understand what that particular verse talks about but the fact that God wasn’t even concerned about the so many “do not” shows that neither of these “do not” was the sin.

A good look at the conversation between God and Cain gives us a clearer look into what sin is. God asked him why he’s angry and why was he dejected and goes ahead to say sin lies at the door and his desire is for Cain to rule for him (Genesis 4:6-7). From here we’ll realize sin is a foreign body waiting around us to enter into our Being to make us rule for him. Sin is like a virus that lies around our firewall waiting for when our defense becomes weak to enter, and when this virus enters into the system, it takes control of the system and corrupt all incoming and outgoing files (information).

What then is sin? Sin is an energy, a dark energy. Sin is the energy of the darkness of the beginning, like all dark energy, sin consumes light and takes control of the body. Sin takes control of a person’s senses and controls the mental interpretation of every information coming through the senses. Sin is not the action, sin is the energy behind that action, a person whose senses has been overcome by sin takes certain action as directed by the sin.

Like every virus, sin is the disease of life. Sin corrupts the natural state of a Being and gives it an artificial state. These artificial states might sometimes “feel” (sensual) like the natural state but they’re artificial. Sin makes a person interpret good as bad, and bad as good. It causes the superimposition of the reality and makes the one in delusion think he’s seen the reality. A person in sin transposes the reality of life and cannot realize what’s real in life.

Sin weakens the mental defense of a Being. For this reason, a person in sin cannot have a sound mind or be reasonable. Such a person cannot be objective about life and they’ll be prone to anger as their fundamental way of expression. A person in sin views life only subjectively and they’re never open minded about the facts of life. A person in sin is proud and sees himself as god.

What then is the greatest sin? We can only know what’s sin by recognizing the victory over sin. The victory over sin is the light that shinned so bright in the darkness that the dark energy could not consume. That light is Jesus, and the Bible records that the darkness could not comprehend the light. From here we can understand that the darkness actually studies every Being, it observes and copies the mode of action and reaction of every Being while lying in wait at the door to get the weakness and taking control of the Being. The darkness could not comprehend the light because the light was fluid/lucid, It was constantly changing. The light was indeterminable.

A person in sin does different things the same way repeatedly, but the light causes constant change (growth) in a person. The light cannot be understood because it relates to every information differently but sin makes a person relate to every information the same way. The person in sin is adamant and cannot view anything differently. They see life as supplied to them rigidly by sin within them.

Life is constantly changing, the person in light changes as life changes but the one in sin does things repeatedly as they did in the past. Therefore, the person in sin is the person trapped in the past but the person in light is the person changing as life changes with every moment.

What then is the greatest sin? The greatest sin is being adamant, refusing to change. This is the greatest sin. The reason for this is because refusing to change is to act against the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is Present to turn all man from their past so that all shall experience the change of NOW but he who is adamant to change is he who wars against the Holy Spirit. Such sin is said to be unforgivable because he who wars against the Holy Spirit has sworn enmity with God.

He who wars against God is he who refuses the Godlike nature: love; peace; knowledge; wisdom, faithful; trust worthy; patience; forgiving etc, such a person becomes everything God isn’t and as such cannot exist in God. Such person sees life from the prism of the darkness in them and whatever dark interpretation they have about life is what they rely on and refuse to change even when the facts say differently.

How can a person come out of sin? Coming out of sin is easy because sin is actually a weakness, and the energy is weak. It takes a simple determination to accept and practice what Jesus says. Jesus has conquered sin therefore a person who accepts and practices his messages starts to build up a their firewall against the darkness of this world. They start to gain knowledge (light) from interpreting the experience gained in practice and the more they know, they more they become equipped against the darkness and the dark energy.

Following Jesus’s steps is easy, all it needs is a conscious effort to live in his way. A person who does this starts to become equipped to view life objectively. The light gained is what determines a person’s NOW. The reality we all exist in is a function of what we know, those who become aware of more about life, “experience” more of the beauty of life. Stop feeling life, start experiencing life.

What does it mean to believe in Jesus?

For most, believing In Jesus entails repeating certain words and becoming a member of a particular religion. The process of salvation for them involves saying that they accept Jesus and after that learning the religions doctrines and going through the religious rites to become a full member of such religion. This is the common way to believe in Jesus In this modern day and if you ask a person if they believe in Jesus, their response will be ‘Yes I’m a Christian’ because they’re a member of a particular religion.

This practice is false, it’s untrue and it’s the reason why there are so many who claim to believe in Jesus but If we observe the society, we would see that the person (character) of Jesus is absent In our society. This false process of believe births highly hypocritical followers of Jesus, people who are merely members of certain religions but their life never reflect the person of Jesus. In fact, Jesus himself knew there shall be hypocritical followers, and because of this, he Informed us we can only enter the kingdom of heaven If our righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and scribes who are basically hypocrites (Mathew 5:20).

Personally, I do not ask people if they believe In Jesus anymore because the answer is often times in the affirmative. This gets even crazier when you have certain people claim to be believers but do not show it. Sometimes you hear certain people claim that they’re believers but do not wear It as a skin. This is hilarious for me even as it is ridiculous to listen.

How do you believe In Jesus? The word “believe” is an action word, so from here we know that you can only believe in Jesus through actions and not through spoken words. So technically, it’s irrelevant to say you believe, actions is what will show if you truly believe in Jesus or not.

Anyone can say they believe in Jesus, anyone can be a Christian, anyone can even read the Bible, yet none of these things proves that a person believes in Jesus. I have seen people take actions that you have to question If they truly have faith, I have seen people say things devoid of the knowledge of Christ and I have met a whole lot of very religious people who do not know God (Romans 10:2-3).

It’s more important for us to be believers than it’s for us to be religious. Believers take actions but religious people say words, these are two separate kinds of people. Actions do not always mean evangelism, your life is an action. The way you live your life is the first action that proves you a believer, every other action is directed by faith of Jesus that you receive after believing. For faith comes after believe (Romans 10:13-17)

Believing in Jesus is a two way thing, this is why most mistake It. Just as the word Believe Is two a way thing, accept and Be, the believe in Jesus likewise involves accepting his words and doing the will of God. In fact, the fundamental part of the gospel shows Jesus saying those who are his family are those who “do” the will of God (Mathew 12:47-50). This means while it’s important to hear the word, obeying (In practice) the word is what actually proves a believer. A person who hears the word but does not practice that which he hears Is not a believer irrespective of how long they hear the Word.

It’s important to know that believing in Jesus transcends just hearing the word. The major deception in religion entails the dilution of the term believe and faith to mean hearing the word alone but these words mean more than just hearing the Word of God. It’s better a person does not hear the word at all than for them to hear and not obey it. The word heard becomes a witness unto them at the end.

Why do you need to believe? Believe (not belief) Is the basis of all knowledge. Believe entails accepting and practicing, the process ensures that a person who has believed gains knowledge from their experience. The one who hears but doesn’t practice cannot know what the Bible Is talking about because knowledge can only be gained from analyzing experience gained in practicing. It’s important to remember that the freedom of Christ is unto them that know the truth and unto them who say they do or those who belong to a religion. Since knowledge is only gained through practice, therefore a person who hears the word (even often) and does not practice it is still held in captivity.

Start to believe (accept and practice) in Jesus, relate to others in love as he did, forgive others as he did etc. It’s only when you practice what you’ve heard that others shall see your light and give glory to your father in Heaven.
