What Happens When You Fail Tests of Character?

 

Kindred,


Do you know what happens when you fail tests of character?  


Nothing?  


Who's to know?  


Perhaps nothing immediate in consequence or your relationships with the world around you; however, something immediate happens with your relationship with the Lord and within yourself.  


When you talk yourself into believing falsehoods or ignoring truths, then you fail to discern the difference between holy and unholy, right and wrong, wise and foolish, truth and lies.  


I highly doubt that the unholies can understand what was done, let alone read and read with any kind of understanding.  


Try putting yourself in the victim's shoes and think what if the same things had happened to you, time and time again at countless atrocities, how would you feel?  


You would know how damning, if you bothered to think through the practices and put yourself on the receiving end of such practices.  


How would you like it if it happened to you?  


When you can answer these questions, then you will have an inkling of what happens when you fail tests of character.
