When one really thinks about the things that ordinary, average citizens went along with during the Nazi period of Germany, we begin to realize that we are lucky that we were not German at that point in time. We know we would most likely have fared no more ethically than those accused and convicted. And, yet, even knowing our own guilt, avoided only chance, we understand we must forge ahead and and prosecute these people to the full extent of the law, even to death.
Third Day’s song Carry My Cross has an interesting lyric: I’ve come here with a mission \ And soon I’ll give my life for this world \ I’m praying in the garden \ And I’m looking for a miracle.
And when we know the truth I think we will see that God is given all the glory because He has done something more incredible and more beautiful than we could have ever thought possible.
Seek ye first the kingdom of God / And His righteousness, / And all these things shall be added unto you, / Allelu, alleluia.
