Saved on a technicality


If your god is forever forgiving, provided that you bow only before him and consider him unparalleled, unchallenged, and single, would you indulge in petty (and non-trivial but non-cardinal) sins and deeds on the belief that at the end of your day you will be forgiven if you so seek forgiveness for your sins from your god?

Would you, then, intensify your indulgences as well as your acts of supplication in the holy month of Ramadan, a scared period of thirty (or more, or less) days where your god is known by you to be at his most merciful and forgiving demeanour?

Would you not think, on reflection, that what is a trivial lie, a dishonest dealing in trade, but a small mistake that your god will not only not mind but also exonerate you from if you spread your arms and submit to him with all your heart?

  2. Yeah, but specifically talking of this concept of a diety, wouldn’t the all-knowing and just god know that you think that you can play by the rules? The concept of supplication and repentance is from the core of the heart, not based on coming up with your own “creative” solutions to your indulgences in what’s harmful to the society or your kin.
