Sinners are equal among themselves, sin multiplies all their merits by zero. The righteous are also equal among themselves as perfect units. The sinners are equalized by fear, the righteous are equalized by love, but everyone has the same fear, and everyone has his own love
When the sinner is extremely annoying to suffer, he may look for the righteous, and it will inspire in him the hope that salvation is, and its voluntary burn in hell completely optional process. Hell is an act of good will and pride. He climbed into the pot, he suffers... Why?
The Kingdom of heaven is truth, but truth is a paradox. On the one hand, it is hell and a bait for stupid flies, and on the other hand, Paradise and a reward for the righteous. If you are a righteous man, your Kingdom of heaven is Paradise; if you are a sinner, your Kingdom is hell.
Having exhausted a large passion, a person automatically becomes immune to smaller passions. Against the background of defeated alcoholism, gambling, gluttony or lust, all other temptations of vices fade. A true Saint is a penitent sinner.
God doesn't punish anyone for anything. God simply fulfills the desires of people, and the desires of fools and proud people are extremely sad in consequences. Sinners should be very afraid of their desires, flies fly to the sticky.
You should restrain yourself from all sides at once. Obesity and dystrophy are equally harmful to health. Fools and clever people are equally repulsive to others. Sinners and saints are equally dangerous to society.
Your desire for everyone to agree with you and intolerance of other people's opinions is also pride. What is surprising is that your life is a continuous burden against the background of rare bursts of contrasting pleasure, necessary for you not to get used to your suffering. The sinner must suffer; it is not good if he gets used to suffering and so exhausts it.
When a good day is over, you go to bed to sleep the sleep of the just.
Happiness is the state when you don't have to be scared or ashamed of your actions. "You did everything right and you did everything you could." And this is the thought that makes the sleep especially sound.
The increase in the number of pleasures and temptations increases the power of the righteous, that is, those who have been able to cultivate the freedom of the spirit and avoid Vice by the choice of free will.
He who hopes for one thing is a sinner and an idolater. The righteous man hopes for everything at once, or for nothing. The righteous person is complete in feeling hope for everything and nothing at the same time. The righteous man has a million hopes at once, but he realizes that they are all small and weak, and if they start to sprout, they will need to be supported. If hope grows stronger and becomes a reality, the righteous man will say, " I knew." If hope dies, the righteous man will say, " I knew."
God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac, to see if Abraham had not departed from the service to the truth, if he had not created an idol for himself. The righteous should love only the truth, loving idols is a sin. Isaac was a late and only Sarah’s child, obviously overloved. Passionate love begets the devil. God commanded to sacrifice not just a son, but a devil. Then why did he spare him? The devil is pride and lust for power. Humility is the cure for pride. Humility killed the devil and God spared Isaac.
The meaning of the idea about the end of the world and the righteous who will inherit the earth is as follows. Sinners will succumb to the devilish temptation and vice. The devil will offer sinners an illusion of paradise and all paradisiac pleasures. Those who have a weak spirit will leave our world (for instance, they will disappear in virtual reality). People resisting the temptation will inherit the earth of our world.
They say God gives to the righteous, and the devil deceives him and scores for himself. It is said that this is the essence of the temptation of Vice. Work righteous we earn, and then from fear and stupidity all give.
