It’s Not Fair…

And if the virtuous man turns from the path of virtue to do evil, the same kind of abominable things that the wicked man does, can he do this and still live? None of his virtuous deeds shall be remembered, because he has broken faith and committed sin; because of this, he shall die. You say, “The LORD’S way is not fair!” (Ez 18:24-25)

“It’s not fair that the Catholic Church teaches that artificial birth control is wrong. Don’t they know that we’re struggling to make ends meet?”

“How can the Catholic Church deny Holy Communion to those people who got divorced and remarried outside of the Church?”

“How come women can’t be priests? The Church isn’t being fair to women!”

“Why do we have to go to church every Sunday? Can’t I worship God at home?”

“I don’t believe in everything the Catholic Church teaches. Didn’t God give me a brain to decide what’s right and what’s wrong?”

“It’s not fair when the bishops tell pro-abortion Catholic politicians that they shouldn’t receive the Eucharist until they accept the Church’s teaching that abortion is murder. Who are they to deny Jesus to someone?”

“I don’t believe in not eating meat on the Fridays of Lent. I think it’s silly.”

“We don’t understand why we can’t live together without being married… everyone does it! The Church has to change with the times.”

“Why can’t I do whatever I want, even if the Catholic Church tells me it’s a sin? They’re out of touch!”

Hear now, house of Israel: Is it my way that is unfair, or rather, are not your ways unfair? When a virtuous man turns away from virtue to commit iniquity, and dies, it is because of the iniquity he committed that he must die. But if a wicked man, turning from the wickedness he has committed, does what is right and just, he shall preserve his life; since he has turned away from all the sins which he committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die. And yet the house of Israel says, “The LORD’S way is not fair!” Is it my way that is not fair, house of Israel, or rather, is it not that your ways are not fair? (Ez 18:25-29)
