Subject: A Message from Net African Church #1

Today's topic is that of the half-filled glass.

It has always been an interesting topic. The optimist sees the glass as half-full. But the pessimist sees the glass as half-empty.

St. Bernadette and perhaps other saints considered that what was important about the glass was that it should be filled and not left half-full or half-empty. If God fills them all the same, then a small cup will run over and a large cup will contain hardly a drop. A whale needs more to eat than a minnow does.

David waxed lyrical, " Thou spreadest a table before me in the presence of my cup runneth over."

But what could Job say, only that God wasted his cup, like spilled milk, onto the ground. God belittled him, in the eyes of his fellow man. Ditto for Pharoah.

In a story from Africa, the ancient gods commanded, unjustly, "innocent blood" or the blood of the innocent and poor must flow whenever the wealthy commit a sin.

In line with what was said above, it's not fair for the small to be overfilled with punishment and retribution while the wealthy are never punished at all. Each man should be punished according to his capacity and deserts.

When Elijah discovered a village of prosperous infidels, whom God demanded nothing of, he felt outrage and punished them by killing 400 of them. Perhaps, it seemed to Elijah that God was lax about the trespasses of some infidels and he felt obliged to take the law into his own hands.

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." In the past, this idea seemed to embody the principle of righteousness.

"Vengeance is mine, said the Lord" was quoted in the days of my youth.
