In an African tribe, when someone makes something wrong, they put him in the center of the village and for 2 days they tell him all the good things he has done. They believe that people are inherently good and that every bad thing they say is just a cry out for help… (1)
The evil is out there.
And the only way to defend against it is to use good.
Try to punish and inflict evil on a person who has done harm,
and you will burry the goodness inside him for ever.
Jesus Christ died and forgave his killers.
Sure almost none of us has the strength to do something like that.
But this is exactly what shows us that this is the right thing to do…
“…they put him in the center of the village and for 2 days they tell him all the good things he has done.”
I thought our “progressive” society is doing that already. At least our justice system celebrates the bad childhood of the perps and bash their victims.
