Measure

Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall

A collection of quotes lifted from a forgotten jump drive startle the memory of the hero. A quote for an ethics class, what was the title, and what was the theme? Reminding him of the day the class debated the nature of sin. His innocent classmates mislabeling crimes of necessity for spiritual crimes. Deciding there was no Heaven blessed gain in sinning. So many believers, so quick to condemn. Credit card fraud, a tank of stolen gas, lies to hide the truth of monsters under the bed. Criminal? To measure simple wrongdoings against the number of lives saved…more like balance.
