Exoneration versus Pardon



2000 years ago a parable was presented to the world in which a man had been robbed and left injured by the wayside. In the parable a priest came that way, who, when he saw the man, passed by on the other side; likewise a Levite. Then came a Samaritan, a person of low esteem, who had compassion on the man. He bound up his wounds and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. The Samaritan further provided for the man's upkeep until his full recovery. My question to you is this: In whose world would you like to live? Would you choose the world of the Priest, or that of the high cast Levite, who were both too deeply enmeshed in moral poverty, to help? Or would you choose the world of the Samaritan? - The Samaritan chose to create and maintain the kind of world he was proud to live in: a richly human world.
