We want to make things clear immediately. He once again advises us to wait. Don’t you know exactly where the evil is? Can’t you discern the disease and did you burn yourself along with weeds?
But we are sure of the infallibility of our diagnosis. And we vigorously intervene to clean up the field of history. We burn the weeds of heretics and nonbelievers to keep the faith intact. We also burn the miasmas of the lower race to keep our white race clean. We are killing the exploiters of the people to enforce justice and equality with brute force and the law of the fist.
But that is not the solution. They are all a part of ourselves. Everyone is waiting for salvation. We are all responsible for everything.
While the lie kills the other to consolidate its dominion; the Truth is crucified to save its crucifiers. The Church urges the believers to let themselves be crucified, but not to crucify others, and let themselves be treated unjustly, rather than treat anyone unjustly.” The ultimate goal of the divine will is: “God wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
When, heedless of the Truth, I want to impose my point of view, either I kill the other to save my theory or I kill the truth by equating the healthy with the unhealthy to cause bewilderment and succeed in my plans.
The relationship between truth and love is indissoluble. One cannot exist without the other.
The truth of love creates the world. And the love of truth sets every human being free. “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).
The lie either kills human beings in an effort to save their theory or kills the truth by equating illusion with reality in order to nullify human freedom.
Truth is the love that sacrifices itself to save all the human being, the weak and the unjust.
Lying is the brutal intervention imposed by force. It condemns everybody to calamity. It is called either religion if its perpetrator plays the prophet or democracy if it plays the role of political leader.
