We have dilineated between “legal” and “civil” matters in this country. But are we always using common sense in this dilineation? Example: I walk into a retail store and steal a pair of shoes. I’m charged with “shoplifting” and given a fine and, perhaps, some jail time. I walk into a retail store and buy a pair of shoes on my credit card. Instead of paying the monthly fee, however, I take that money to go out and buy more stuff for myself. In this case, have I, in effect, stolen the shoes as well? Common sense would say: yeah. Yet, I’m not prosecuted. Note: It would seem to me that we’ve created a terribly complex, and convoluted, economic system. And this scenario is just one example. What’s more, this has clouded our spiritual perceptions as well. That is, you’re average American consumer would look at the ‘credit card / shoe’ scenario I outline as purely an economics concern, not a spiritual concern as well.
