Benefit of the Doubt


Do you know what is worse than having no defenses against sin or wrong doing?

Having no suspicion of sin or any possible suspicion of wrongdoing of the sinners or perpetrators.

For some reason, the benefit of the doubt goes to the perpetrator not the victim.

Just how groomed are people to ignore the truth or suspicion of lies, sin and wrongdoing?

Do you ignore questionable behaviors by questionable wrongdoers or sinners (in your family, your tribe, coworker, or ministers)? 

Do you wait until some terrible wrong has been committed, then still believe the lies of perpetrators or sinners? 

Are groomed to suspend even suspicion and proof until a sin or crime is proven beyond reasonable doubt?

What happens to the victims in the meantime? 

How many counts of abuse, slander and blame must the victim(s) suffer before the doubt and suspicion of lies shifts to the sinner, liar and perp, and not the victim?

Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
