Mobile meals Pander Tfiese TKings in yaur Heart gennis Just&on understand why bad things happen in the world, we need to understand one more concept: God's justice. The ways of God are not our ways, nor is His justice. Jesus tells us things like turn the other cheek and go the extra mile (Matthew 5:39-41). He told a story about the laborer who showed up to work just before quitting time. The man was paid the same as the one who worked all day. Human justice seeks equality and fairness. God's justice is about restoring us to His Kingdom so we can experience union with Him. The goal of God's justice is to restore us to paradise. God's justice is revealed in the story of the Prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32). Notice that God wasn't shooting lightning bolts at the son as he squan- dered his money. When his life ended up bankrupt he was drawn back to the Father by His love and the son's memory of that love. Seeking to return as a slave, the Father's lavish love welcomed him back as a son. St. Augustine, who was born in 354, said, "Let us understand that God is a physician, and that suffering is a medicine for salvation, not a pun- ishment for damnation." The early church saw herself as a hospital, an agent of healing, coop- erating with God and His justice to bring sinners into the Kingdom (and hence salvation), not through judgment and condemnation but through healing and love. The very words salvation and healing are almost interchangeable. Webster's unabridged dictionary defines salvation as "delivering from evil or the consequences of sin." Healing is defined as "freeing from evil, a purification or cleansing of the soul." In the West, our churches have competing methods of salvation, but we all tend to view salvation in legal terms to a greater extent than the Christian East. Western theology places emphasis on avoiding evil. In the East, there is more emphasis on healing. Western Christians often associate suffering in someone's life with punishment. Too often we hear how God is punishing us by sending AIDS, natural disasters, or other personal calamities because we are liv- ing immorally. Christianity thereby becomes the agent for self-hatred. Our entry into God's Kingdom is motivated by guilt and fear. Jesus is not into guilt and fear. His spirituality is the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12), which describe the purified, surrendered person. They describe the holy person who lives in the present reality of the Kingdom of God. Notice how the Beatitudes seem to describe a person who suf- fers, is poor, and is non-violent. These are not Western or Christian val- ues it seems. We can become this free and holy Kingdom person through healing and by giving up life in the kingdoms of this world. By losing our life, we will find it. We lose life by giving it away, by being charitable in the true sense of the word. The charity of the saints has less to do with giving away money and things as it is giving away our will, our lives, and our love. The goal isn't just to be good, but to become one with God, to be like Jesus, to allow the Beatitudes to describe who we are. By giving our love away, we imitate God and become healers and comforters. In this way we bring light to the world and the remedy to suffering and darkness. God does not send us evil, nor does He give us morality lectures when we mess up. He transforms the evil and suffering in our lives into bless- ings. He helps us transform our trials into treasures. He does this through love and healing. His love and mercy heals us to be the whole and holy person we were created to be. In the process, He shows us that indeed, His love IS the most powerful force on earth. In the midst of our most terrible sin, we return to the Father and find ~~,othat He saw us from a long way off, has compassion on us, and welcomes into His Kingdom. And here, we find our peace. May this peace?ag~ .... "%" - ....
