The judgment of the thieves
March 23, 2020
Note that all are sinners, as the two revolutionaries, or thieves, were both sinners. They both blasphemed when they began. There was no difference between them. Then one of them responded to grace, and the other interpreted the power of God as doing something good for himself, and so he said, 'If you're the Son of God, save yourself and save us.' That's all God is for. What would he have done with his life had it been given to him? He would have gone on with the dirty business of thieving. So, on the last day there will be the good and the bad. This is judgment in its prologue.
