lux_in_tenebris states : "So in my rotations, I’ve learned there are some seriously sick people … that are genuinely dangerous to the public. Many times … there is nothing we can do for them…
As it stands [today] society’s best attempts are to lock these souls up [in Jail].
My question is, what is our duty to these people…?
Also … will God judge them on the same scales as normal folks…?"
"what is our duty to these people?"
Well, personally, I do not know any of these people, so the answer to ME is … I have NO duty to them at all.
Beyond that, I can (if I wish to) offer up Prayers to God for these people, but that is certainly NOT a duty.
You, on the other hand, are (apparently) a Doctor or Aide.
In your case, you have an ethical and moral duty to help these people get into the best-possible emotion shape that you can.
If you do any less than that, then I believe that God will judge you for your failure to protect helpless people who you are paid to help medically.
And finally, "will God judge them on the same scales as normal folks?"
God does what God wants to do.
People think like people think, but God thinks like God.
So, God may reduce the sentence for a mentally sick person.
OK, let’s say that one of your patients murdered 12 people, brutally raped 20 more, and maimed 100 other unlucky people, with absolutely NO remorse for doing it.
In a normal person, God would (probably) judge that person’s behavior as BAD.
I assume that God would condemn that un-repentant muderer-rapist to spend eternity in Hell.
Now, in the case of a psychotic, let’s assume that God forgives 95% of the stain of his Sins.
That STILL leaves a better-than-Average chance that God will send him to Hell.
However, it seems like you are asking : if the guy is sick, will God just send him off into Heaven?
God can do whatever God wants to do.
If I was God, I might handle things differently … fortunately, I am NOT God.
