'The Most Grievous Sin'


Hi guys!

Here is an interesting article about a situation I've been 'reading into' for quite some time now:

Quote:
Of all sins forbidden by the Ten Commandments, the most vile — worse than murder, in a way, because it so eloquently speaks to the perpetrator’s moral fiber — is “bearing false witness against thy neighbor.” Specifically, speaking falsely against someone to damage them civilly or criminally; framing them.
https://eu.press-citizen.com/story/o...ess/313636001/

Quote:
For such people, inflicting pain is the objective. It’s not about common good; it’s not about social justice; it’s not about anything but inflicting pain — and if they use foul means to reach their goal, so what? The person they’re hurting had it coming.

I don’t pretend to understand what sort of evil possesses these people and makes them capable of such deeds — but they are possessed by evil. They should and must be shunned: placed outside the sufferance of decent society
.

Some people are finished (here in Ireland), at least professionally.

Thanks guys

Signed,

(not-even-catholic)

A person does not commit adultery because it is against the law, they do not commit adultery because they love their spouse. The Law does not stop someone from breaking it. ..... Only love. The greatest sin I have committed is not loving God enough which has allowed me to sin.

May I love God with my whole heart , mind and soul.

"Other sins can be, if not excused, at least explained by the truism that we all have faults. Decent people fall into error and do terrible things. You or I might commit a murder out of passion; steal out of desperation; commit adultery because were all too human"

This is crap in my opinion and opinions are like elbows, we all have a couple.

Its impossible to go through life without lying. But we must impress on children, from the moment they can grasp the concept, that a specific type of lie bearing false witness against ones neighbor is the most grievous of sins: against the individual injured; against society; against all standards of common decency; against God if you believe in God.

According to the Bible, the one sin that cannot be forgiven by God, is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. You can find this in Matthew, Mark, and Luke, but it is more definitively spelled out in Matthew 12:22-37.

I agree with Toad regarding opinions and elbows.

Artistry aside, I'm just looking for answers...

And that is a good one. I HEAR THAT.

Thank you Suki
