Soul Scaffold ~ Betrayal & Torment
As with Judas, betrayers have first died on the inside before they die 'on the outside'. Filled with shame Judas returned his bribe, then hung himself. (See Matthew 27:1-10)
After the betrayal the inducement becomes as empty as the remorse is full.
Betrayers become the biggest victim of their betrayal. Their torment persists.
To those who know a Judas, remember Jesus' soul cleansing bellow from the Cross - forgive them for they know not what they do.
It is forgiveness spoken out from the deepest of pain that precedes resurrection.
Forgiveness is torment's biggest enemy.
