Choice: Victory or Equity
Opt for victory and there is no getting out of dualism. Winner or loser? Heaven or hell?
Opt for equity and there is no getting out of parsing the gray/grey. Did they do the best they could with what they had at the time? In what context would a lie be pardonable?
If both are needed then a progression from victory to equity is preferable to the other way around.
Have you been conditioned by the pervasive invasion of atonement theology to victory language or influenced by the more difficult theologies of grace, mercy, and creation? These will be evidenced by more ordinary words of victory and fairness.
