The title really makes this. Thought provoking haiku.
The root of all sins is bad thought.They deserve severe punishment.
🙂 religious scriptures should not be followed too much.
usually all sin starts with a thought…luckily there often is still time to re-think..
good one, Charles! and indeed, why stop at the thought if one is already damned?
But thinking is the basis of morality, not a sin. A child needs to think and come to decisions.
I never did understand the Biblical notion of sinning by thought. Great comment here on that.
It is all just a matter of attitude. Nice one.
Well, according to the Bible I am going straight to the ninth circle of Hell because many of my thoughts are less than charitable. Haha. Love this!
If we don’t act on them, we do no harm to others – if we keep thinking them we harm ourselves. That is where the punishment ends
your moral commentaries, pitched toward humor, always amuse… yup, if thought is punishable, might as well go for it.
btw, EXCELLENT title
A worthwhile poem… thoughts good and bad are just part of being human.
This one made me smile, agree with zookie shirts, we are after all only human and prone to all kinds of thoughts, good and bad. But I do like Ruth’s attitude, we could just go for it and ask for forgiveness later!
What we all thought while studying our catechism. Very good, Charles.
