Steal from the rich, who steals from the rich? Only the rich do that.
Mostly the thieves that make such a claim just steal from people who work hard to make a living and provide life for their family.
I'm just giving a random example of a situation where it wouldn't be such wickedness.
I don't see why thieves who steal from hard working people would have to make that claim,either way they would just be deceiving themselves or fooling around making such a claim.
Imagine a situation where a corrupt rich man who lives of robbing those who already don't have much and live in the ghetto is accidentaly walking by on the wrong street at the wrong time and someone who has to feed his kids but doesn't have food from that very ghetto is there and sees an expensive watch on the rich man's hand,will it be wickedness to take that watch off his hand and sell it afterwards to provide food for his family?
Overstand that I am not talking about statistics of most thieves and their moral attitude etc..but I'm simply curious if in certain situations wich are potentially possible stealing is still unjustified (before JAH not men).
----- Luke 18
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’
13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’
14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” ----
Iman agree with burning all excuses to commit wikedness.But RasTa must also be careful and considering about the situation before condemning someone else,especially other RasTafarI.
