Sense Of Justice

An impression I carry away from ministry is that people mostly have a sound perspective on justice. To put it simply, if you think it's unjust it probably is. Your judgement is probably correct. I should say, almost certainly is correct. However, people often don't trust their own feelings. I think of one example in particular. A husband's wife was paralyzed through negligence -- she was left unattended in a hospital bed. But lawyers claimed that he was mad, and they succeeded in intimidating him. He told me the story only on condition that I would not repeat it. I can repeat it now. OBSERVATION: Bearing in mind the Christian doctrine that even one's conscience is corrupted. It is not, as some consider, the final, sure measure.
