A judge, when someone is brought before him, after he has looked into the case, says, "I have looked into your case and I find that you are guilty. You are given six months, or five years, or ten years imprisonment. Your crime is very grave and so you must learn not to do it again." But if we go to the blind and lame and ask them, "Were you given this in punishment? Were you told so?" they say, "No, we were told nothing." Now how are we to imagine that God could be so unjust as to punish them and yet not tell them of their crime?
