The Third Gate of Hell… Theft
Since the 1970’s this sin in its many forms has become so ubiquitous as to have become virtually acceptable. This is largely the result of the relentless rise of materialism and consumerism within Western Civilization. With the all consuming need to attain “more things”, the stratagem of the end justifies the means has become the mantra of modern man. Great or humble, rich or poor, everyman has to one degree or another committed this sin and so rationalized it in his own mind that many do not even recognize it as sin. This is largely because theft has many forms that men often have difficulty in discerning.

Fraud, a form of theft, is one of these gray areas where the line between truth and theft is blurred, generally by rationalizing. We experience this daily in advertising. How often have you seen products that just sound too good to be true… The claims of the product’s value is not only often enhanced but is an outright lie. Through this fraudulent representation the customers are routinely “ripped off” in not getting the value as given in the advert. Another more subtle form is to create a need in the general public when a real need does not exist. One has only go to the local China-Marts and China Tree Shops to see all the czaczkas and useless trinkets that are laid out there whose sole designed is simply to separate a fool from his money.

From outright theft of goods of one’s neighbor, to institutional theft of the modern banksters, to government’s levy of onerous and unjust taxes and fees… theft, is rampant within our Western Civilization and it knows no national bounds. From the Third World up to the First World theft has become a wicked game that nearly all levels of society engage in. The worst and most insidious part of it is that the devil has convinced people that it is not a serious sin, if sin at all. Yet, as St. Alphonsus reminds us below it remains one of the four principle gates of hell.


Let us now pass on to the consideration of the third great gate of hell by which so large a portion of the damned enter; I mean theft. Some, so to speak, adore money as their God, and look upon it as the object of all their desires. The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold (Ps. ciii. 12). But the sentence of condemnation has already been pronounced against such: Nor thieves . . . nor extortioners shall possess the kingdom of God? It is true that theft is not the most enormous of sins, but St. Antoninus says that it very much endangers salvation.

The reason is because for the remission of other sins true repentance only is required; but repentance is not enough for the remission of theft: there must be restitution, and this is made with difficulty. A certain hermit had once the following vision: he saw Lucifer seated on a throne, and inquiring of one of his demons why he had been so long about returning. The latter replied that he had been detained by his endeavors to tempt a thief not to restore what he had stolen. Let this fool be severely punished, said Lucifer. To what purpose have you spent this time? Do you not know that he who has taken the property of another never restores it ? And, in truth, so it is: the property of another becomes to him who takes it like his own blood; and the pain of suffering one’s blood to be drawn for another is very difficult to endure. We learn it every day from experience: innumerable thefts take place; how much restitution do you see?

My brethren, see that you take not the property of your neighbor, and if during the past you have ever failed in this respect, make restitution as soon as possible. If you cannot at once make full restitution, do it by degrees. Know that the property of another in your possession will not only be the means of bringing you to hell, but will make you miserable even in this life. Thou hast despoiled others, says the prophet, and others shall despoil thee. Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all that shall be left of the people shall spoil thee (Habac. ii. 8). The property of another brings with it a curse which will fall upon the entire house of the thief. This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the earth . . . and it shall come to the house of the thief (Zach. v. 3); that is to say (as St. Gregory Nazianzen explains it), that the thief shall lose not only the stolen property, but his own. The goods of another are as fire and smoke to consume everything that comes in their way.

Remember well, mothers and wives, when children or husbands bring home the property of their neighbor, remember well to chide and reprove them; not to applaud their action, or even consent to it by silence. Tobias hearing a lamb bleat in his house, Take heed, said he, lest perhaps it be stolen; restore ye it to its owners? St. Augustine says that Tobias, because he loved God, did not wish to hear the sound of theft in his house. Some persons take the property of their neighbor, and then are fain to quiet their consciences by alms-deeds. Christ, says St. John Chrysostom, will not be fed with the plunder of others. The sins of this kind, committed by the great, are acts of injustice, the injuries that they inflict upon others; the taking from the poor of what is their due. These are descriptions of theft which require perfect restitution, and a restitution most difficult of all to make, and most likely to be the cause of one’s damnation.
