Murder in Paradise

 

 Once more, Thomas was seeing how in a single rash act, lasting for less than a minute, heíd lost everything and all he had cherished. Friends, sports, family, education, his woman, even his village was lost to him.

Godís commandment was a terrible indictment against his deed. The State could not absolve him. He would have to face his Maker. Thomas thought then: Better to be murdered than to have committed murder.

Godís commandment was absolute: Thou shalt not commit murder.

He understood again and again that he had murdered himself!

He was a young man, still in his early twenties. Perhaps Time would do somethingÖ heal him. Thomas was not aware that on earth, Time had no jurisdiction or authority over the sin against Godís commandment.
