Criminals go free and sometimes the innocent sit in jail,whether you believe in God or not would...
you also hope for ultimate justice based upon the actions coupled with the intent of heart?
interesting.. so you are speeding down the highway, doing 30 miles over the limit. You get a ticket. You go to court. The judge says "what do you say in your defense". and you say, "Well judge its true this time i was speeding but there were dozens of other times i wasn't. I'm pretty good most of the time".
The judge will still hold you responsible for your misdemeanor.
Intent of heart really has no place in justice.
Everybody has good intentions whether it be revenge, a murder, theft, lying, etc. But still the deed is done and someone was hurt. Most deeds are justified by that person long before they are acted upon.
I disagree and your example has no bearing , Intent doesnt equate to "excuses"
Theres an obvious difference between , someone maliciously committing crimes and someone that isnt.
Theres a difference between someone deliberately pushing an old woman in front of a bus for the sheer pleasure and someone that in order to save a child in the process of pushing him out of the way of a bus accidently knocks an old lady under the wheel , yet is charged with manslaughter.
Often Judges rule "harshly " against criminals who commit crimes , especially if someone is injured and the intent was for money .
Its one thing to beat someone up because you are angry , its quite another if you beat someone up for their wallet .
Thats what "intent of the heart means"
In your example the Judge would reason that "your intent " was to get somewhere in too big a hurry.
You intent was to make a nonsensical excuses to get out of a ticket.
However if you were going to the hospital your intent may be reasonable.

Why does anyone else care if I believe in God or not?If God is in your heart, you will live his will. If he is not, you will live your own will. Isn't what is in ones heart that matters; not what's in someone else's...
