Under the Surface

Many arguments are brought forward by people in order to prove that God's justice does not apply to this world. Quotations from the Old and New Testaments are brought forward as proof positive that it is quite possible for the truly innocent to suffer unjustly, and all sorts of suppositional cases are conjured up (many of which never did, nor ever could, occur in actual life), in order to try and show that justice has no place in the Divine order. The sufferings of children, those born blind or crippled, the diseased, and those suffering from so—called hereditary complaints, accidents, etc., all these facts are advanced as proving the non—existence of justice by those whose sphere of thought and reason does not probe beneath surface appearances into the wonderful working of God's never-failing Law, one aspect of which is perfect justice. Looking only upon the surface, they fail to perceive or to understand the invisible, but unerring, Power which lies behind all these apparently unjust occurrences.

It will be found that those who thus deny the inherent justice have a great belief in "Luck" as opposed to Law, and, as a result, are continually worrying and grumbling because things are going contrary to what they would have them, and are so obstinately confirmed in their gloomy outlook that they refuse to reason deeply and seriously upon life. To such people the whole world appears full of contradictions, a huge chaos in which there is neither rule nor order, law or justice, and they utterly fail to see that they are simply viewing the world through dark-colored spectacles. The selfish man sees nothing but selfishness; the foolish man nothing but foolishness; the unjust man nothing but injustice; but the just man knows full well that God's Laws of justice apply equally as much to this world as they do to the life that is to follow, and if we would understand and see for ourselves this wonderful working of justice throughout the whole Universe, then we must first be just ourselves. Temper and selfishness are two of the great faults that most of us have to contend with; better ideas, better thoughts, and a more friendly feeling towards all mankind will, if persisted in, entirely destroy these two evils, and life in this world will become one of bliss.

A man that studieth revenge keeps his own wounds green, which otherwise would heal and grow well.
—Lord Bacon
