Divine justice and human justice

April 20th 2022
People who have managed to escape human justice often think they can also escape divine justice. They have not studied the question sufficiently to realize that the two systems are not of the same nature. Divine justice may spare them outwardly, but it affects them inwardly. We see criminals who have seemingly escaped justice but who are falling apart inwardly as their physical and psychic health gradually deteriorates. Certain external elements still resist the general decay but even these will eventually crumble, because it is the inner structure that nourishes and sustains the whole edifice. If the inner structure collapses, sooner or later the outer structure is bound to follow suit. This is how divine justice manifests itself, and its judgements are immediate: the moment a person transgresses the law, something darkens within them and begins to crumble. Even if it takes years for this inner rot to become apparent externally, inwardly it is already at work.
