What does Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, the Ancient Queen of Sheba, and Goldilocks all have a common need for King Solomon’s Wisdom?
The Chicago Tribune Columnist opinion article titled: After Smollett case, Kim Foxx’s ‘progressive’ approach faces more trial, contained the ‘Goldilocks s following opinion:
“Goldilocks Rule – not too hard, not too soft, – but it’s necessary.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom verse to the ancient and contemporty times conundrum of the perfect union of men and women as a clue to solve this conundrum of punishment for fools.
A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool’s back. (Proverb 26:3)
Excerpt: Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
2. Every creature must be dealt with according to its nature, but careless and profligate sinners never will be ruled by reason and persuasion.
What’s My Point?
In a previous post titled? Punishment for Fools, we may discern the commonality of this conundrum is nothing new under the sun of how to punish fools.
In My Opinion
It is apparent that in our contemporty times of record high shootings and killings occurring in major cities that secular progressive remedies to maintain order using the mercy and benign methods are in need of change in order to do” what is necessary.
Faith believers use the word sin to describe the actions of criminals. Obviously, teaching secular laws is not working. Perhaps teaching Gods laws not to sin be more effective to reduce crime?
In my opinion, King Solomon ancient times methods of whipping criminals reasoning described in the previous post were cruel for the sinners, but somehow, we seem to forget what is even more cruel for the victims of criminals.
In other words, is mercy and benignity by methods of Prosecutor Kim Foxx accomplishing what King Solomon advised the Queen of Sheba to “keep this in mind as you rule,” or in accordance to the Goldilocks rule
If after reading the previous post in the Source Links below, should we keep in mind the following wisdom verse of the cruelty afflicted on the hopes of shooting victim’s life caused by a criminal fool?
Anyone who is among the living has hope —even a live dog is better off than a dead lion! (Ecclesiastes 9:4) l.
Are taxpayers who work and pay taxes to jail fools, also being punished?
Would voters by wise to persuade legislators be merciful and benign and support school vouchers in order for parents to afford to send their children to private religious schools same as most politicians and 40 percent of public-school teachers to help reduce both shootings and sins that we read every day in the news?
