Parable of the Thieves in the Store
There were 3 people in a grocery store. They were friends stealing things. Stuffing things in their pockets and under their jackets. Then a fourth customer went to go in the store but one of the thieves would not let them in. They wanted to purchase some milk and bread but the thieves would not let them in the store. There was an officer in the store off the clock who noticed the stealing. He unfortunately noticed that two of them had a gun.
If they had let the innocent customer in the store then he was just going to let them all go to save the life of the spotless customer but since the thieves rejected the shopper. He escorted the cashier to the back, called in back up and arrested them all.
See the thieves separated themselves so the cops charged them. When that level of separation happens He says “Charge Them!”
