AN EXTREME CASE Here is an extreme case of a human being so convicted of doing right that he helped criminals.


The father of the famous German philosopher, Emanuel Kant, was and old man and was traveling on a perilous journey through the forests of Poland. On his way the encountered a band of robbers who demanded his valuables, finally asking, ¡°Have you given all? They only let him go when he replied, ¡°All.¡± When safely out of sight his hand touched something hard in the hem of his robe. It was his gold, sew there for safety. He had forgotten it in his fear and confusion. He hurried back and confessed to the robbers that he had not told them the truth. They did not take his gold, but gave it back to him along with his purse, his prayer book and then helped him on his mount. They asked his blessing as he rode away.
