Discuss Melvin Whitcombe's answer to: What is the spiritual life?

The spiritual life is one that is fully in balance: all matters are handled as a question of discipleship to God.  Hence, we treat others as we wish to be treated, pay our debts as agreed, behave as model citizens, and attend to all matters properly.

To exist at the beck and call of a person whose life is in such rancorous discord that order and compassion is simply out of the question is of course pandemonium: "a place for all demons," e.g. hell.

The sheer chaos of life near extremists of any sort is to exist in a living hell, be that person a Muslim suicide bombing terrorist, a leftist liberal "occupier" known for vandalism, or an atheist whose constant screaming against religion makes all existence miserable.

There is no reason to endure the rancorous games of these extremists.


What you do today will be on your conscience tomorrow -- and for the rest of your existence.
