Comment: Just because

In reply to comment: exactly. despite the power (see in situ)

Just because

men are not perfect is no reason to abandon that which is deemed good.

For instance, when was the last time you were in a tribunal where sentencing proceedings commenced with posing a simple question to the victim:

Do you wish to forgive this man of any trespasses that have been proven before this tribunal?

If grace, mercy, love, or forgiveness are in fact good yet those precepts will not live in men's souls despite their power, majesty, or any herculean attempts they ought not be abandoned. The choice to pursue good ought to be preserved in any system man devises so that those who are willing to extend grace, mercy, love, or forgiveness have opportunities by their own actions to inspire others to pursue good.
