Rev. L. Suohie Mhasi
The definition of human ethics of relationship is “In everything to do others what you would have them do to you.” What is right to do to others is ethical and what is not right to do to others is unethical. Being ethical to one another has reward from God.
During these days our Legislators are facing another tug of war over a matter of a very short time in rule. All are believers of Christ in whose teaching there is no room to have enmity with one another. In political field too anything which is good is good and anything is evil is evil before God and God rewards according to the deeds. Being sacrificial and generous for the good of one another is done to Christ Himself.
It is known to all that Dr.Shürhozelie and T.R.Zeliang had been together as true brothers and worked hand in hand in shouldering the responsibility of the State. Unknowingly the situation compelled T.R.Zeliang to step down to the heart pain of the President Dr.Shürhozelie too. The situation led to such a situation that Dr.Shürhozelie the President had to put his feet in the shoes of T.R. Zeliang. It is only for a matter of a few months.
After several months the wind of tussle for power began to blow which shocked the people. There are laws, rules and legal matters but the teachings of Christ and good human ethics are far better, higher and greater than the laws and rules of the Governments. According to the Laws and Rules, majority wins. But it is never magnanimous even if wins. Taking it granted for the sake of coming generations is true magnanimous. If I were in the present scenario, I would consider the situation to be immaterial.
