“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil; for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.” Luke 6:45
Is it really that hard to discern that which is good and that which is evil?
Are we truly Christians?
Does the abundance of our hearts impel us to build walls and foster hate?
Does it profile, judge and sentence us based on our color or religion;
Does it round up refugees and deport them for extermination;
Does it systematically break the hearts of loving families?
Does the abundance of our hearts invest all its faith in so-called defence?
Does it create the necessity for weaponization;
Does it make us believe we must arm ourselves in our own homes;
Does it systematically destroy our dream of liberty and justice for all?
Does the abundance of our hearts spoil the water and the air;
Does it ignore the interdependence of planetary species;
Does it entrap living creatures under its cloud of toxic wastes;
Does it systematically destroy its lifeblood for cold hard cash?
Does the abundance of our hearts induce greater hardships upon the poor,
Does it take food out of the mouths of children, the infirmed and the elderly;
Does it allow the free market to determine who thrives and who withers and dies;
Does it systematically siphon life from the masses to enhance the richest?
Does the abundance of our hearts abuse intelligence with its ignorance;
Does it replace empiric facts with false alternatives;
Does it utilize science to create sophisticated weapons rather than wisdom;
Does it systematically deprive all young minds access to knowledge?
Tell me, all fellow Christians!
Are these the treasures offered by the good man?
