(un)conditional

The words, “The job is yours if you’ll sleep with me.” kept hammering in my head when the actor who played a colonizer in a play at rehearsals today kept saying to the Queen of the Bathembhu tribe, “We brought you civilization and Christianity.” convincing her to let go of the land. My heart then sank at the realization that since the beginning of time mankind has always used what the human soul needs to lure them out of worth, wealth and dignity.

This then left me with so many unanswered questions regarding our abilities to discern. If we are able to realize that jobs are not the problem but the selfish ambition of those who offer them at a price why can we not also realize that the freedom of the human soul through the gift of salvation is not the issue but the selfish ambition of those that use them as bait for selfish gain is?
