Furthermore, restitution is done when it is feasible and practical for the better good of the doer and the sufferer. A woman who committed abortion cannot restitute to her dead baby. What good would it be for those pastors to hand over their citizenship through which they feed their families and bless the people of God? Would that make them more Christian? Hadn’t God forgiven them already? This is one of those cases where the letter of the law must match with the spirit of the law for the general good of humanity or the individual. It is not for nothing that equity is applied in jurisprudence. Moreso, while these pastors told a lie, there is nothing tangible that they collect from the government that they must make restitution? Therefore, I do not think that there is any biblical exposition directly or by inference that requires them to restitute or give back their legality.
“Bonyfish beware because the same net that caught the jawless fish, caught the cartilaginous fish” (Hamilton Ayuk). Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
