I see Righteousness as a thing that stands alone. It is not an opinion, nor something that is compromisable.
In every situation, the truth of the given matter, or the right thing to do is always evident... whether InI choose to do it is a different thing. Somebody said, there are many opinions, in fact truth is simply one of them. And that is a serious thing... the truth will always be amongst many opinions, but when the rest are set away, the truth always stands alone.
So... we are all measured according to that singular truth that is unswayable by any of InI. So the righteousness by which InI are judged has nothing to do with our opinions.
How I meant it within the context was that, although I Ras Tafari (or Bobo Shanti) are to practice compassion, we are always to remain standing for righteousness. And in the end all of us know that our source of righteousness comes from within, the constant source of tuition from JAH, called "intuition". So, it is all our individual judgement stick if we ignore the itinual personal messages on righteousness.
So although JAH is love and one Iniversal love is most naturally one of the unfaltering truths, there is more to it in this Iwah of judgements. And we are never to forsake standing for Rights for being compassionate to the unrighteous.
It is the simple adage that InI must stand for something or we fall for anything. Ras Tafari knows we need to keep it tight in these times and stick by righteousness like a child to a Mother's skirt hem.
I'm honestly not big on the book of Genesis, sorry to say... for those it may offend... but parables are good for explaining things. You see when Lot was running from burning Sodom & Gomorrah, he was told not to look back. His wife did, and she turned into a pillar of salt.
The point is when InI see judgement trickling, it is time to hold fast to the irits of JAH Ras Tafari, and stop looking back... even though compassion is important... it is not moreso than creating a field of oneness and righteousness within the covenant with the Irator.
That's what I meant. I hope I have elaborated on all. It's not really a brimstone & fiyah vibe I'm on... but this is REALity of InI trod in this day & age.
