Justice and Mercy
Tonight's blog, brought to you by my tiny brain and the letter A, we begin with a question. If justice without mercy isn't justice then is mercy without justice mercy?
No, not just being pedantic. Can there be true mercy with no justice? For some reason we hang up on mercy for the individual but totally neglect it in the aggregate - the dead opposite of how we tend to view justice. We want to show mercy to the individual, but we forget the victims, past and future.
On a less esoteric level, if mercy can exist without justice, how do we explain the Cross?
Those are the questions I'm considering - next time I'll start work on the answers.
