Hello Everyone; namaste:

We are continuing with chapter two, paragraph four in the letter to the Omans in the book "Gospel of One; Letters of Aul."

"Sometimes we may hurt others without realizing it. Other times we may deliberately hurt others. God knows the difference. He doesn't punish us, but he has set up the laws of cause and effect. Our actions have consequences. Everything we say and do comes back to us in like measure. In this way the justice of God is perfect."

Commentary: Some people question the justice of God because some people seem to get away after hurting someone or something. Not so, the event is registered in the person's soul. It will have to be balanced sooner or later. God is not interested in punishment, but he is interested in justice and balance. It is in God's Self-interest to keep everything in balance, so as individual parts of God, we balance ourselves out. This is where our conscience comes from. We hear the voice of God telling us something about our actions. If we shut out this voice, it will still come through in other ways, such as through your spouse, or your child, or a friend, or the police, or through some action from the world.
