MOSCOW (Realist English). God’s justice does not consist in one force triumphing over another, not in the lesser evil defeating the greater evil, but in the fact that there were no evil at all, noted the priest of the Russian Orthodox Church Stefan Domuschi in a commentary to an excerpt from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah.
“People very often try to involve God in the resolution of certain conflicts. They see themselves as righteous while their enemies as guilty and, calling on the Creator, they want justice to prevail… But at the same time, everyone usually forgets that God’s justice is not that one force triumphs over another, not that the lesser evil overcomes the greater evil, but that there is no evil at all. That is why the Prophet does not say that after the victory over the enemies on Mount Zion, a meal will be made for the Jews. This would be quite understandable, because a covenant was made with them, their capital is on this mountain… This means that a festive feast should be for them,” the priest is quoted as saying on the website of Radio Vera.
The priest reminds that the true victory of God is not the victory of one nation over others, but the victory over what separates them:
“Whether it seems fair to someone or not, but the feast of God turns out to be a feast for all nations. There are no more chosen and rejected among them… there are no oppressed and oppressors… and death is defeated by life, and there are no more tears on their faces. Striving to ensure that justice prevails on earth, we must remember that only God is truly just.”
