And in the end, you are the final measure, you are the standard, you draw the line, you are god.
St. Paul made it clear for all of us in Ephesians 2: "And you he made alive, when you were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once walked...among these we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of body and mind ,and so we were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind."
That is the teaching of Jesus, the Scriptures and Our Lady's university, period. Every man, woman and child on the earth is in need of God's mercy and grace, his forgiveness, the precious blood of Jesus Christ that makes it possible for us to escape Hell and enter Heaven.
Is it possible for even Sandusky to receive the mercy of God? Yes, if he sincerely repents, stops the charade, the cover up, he too can recieve the forgiveness of sins and enter eternal life. He's going to get his in this life--as he should, and if he lies until the end (only he and God know the full truth), he will receive eternal punishment. I don't wish that on him or any man.
If you think your wrongdoing is acceptable, but his is not, you're wrong. Is raping children worse than lying? Yea. But does it mean your lying is not serious, worthy of God's judgment? NO. According to your reckoning it is, it somehow ought to be overlooked or given a pass because you're not as bad as the next guy, your good deeds somehow outway or mitigate your guilt. According to the words of Jesus, the apostles, the catechism of the CAtholic church, your lying, though less aggregious than child rape, still merits eternal seperation from God. Like Sandusky himself, you stand in need of the precious blood of Jesus Christ on the day of judgment. IF you don't see that, you call God--Jesus, a liar. Those are God's standards, not mine.
1 John 1:8 "If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us...If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
