Equanimity of the Holy

 

"A just weight and balance are the Lord's; all the weights in the bag are His work."   


                       -Proverbs 16:11


Just as we are weighed on Judgement Day and sorted to our proper placement (heaven, purgatory or hell) each according to our deeds and character, we are weighed in life by the Holy Spirit.


We know from Proverbs 16:11,


"The Lord demands accurate scales and balances; he sets the standards for fairness."*


And in order to arrive at the Lord's standards,


the spiritual consequences on a sinner may be severe or minor depending upon what results will arrive at a holy and positive spiritual energy (not just for the sinner, but also the whole of humanity) acceptable to the Lord.


Sanctus Aequanimitas.


Therefore, while there is time sinners must confess, repent and atone to the proper weight and balance, because once at the end there will be no more chances of redemption.

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....
