Vengeance Is Mine

Topic # 1   Revenge Is Reserved to God—A Contrast

Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 This principle is affirmed by Paul from its source in Deuteronomy 32:34-35. We are not allowed to take our own revenge, it is for God to do it. If we take it into our own hands, He steps back. But it we let Him, He will defend us and do a more perfect job of it.

Now contrast this with Islam which orders its jihadists to go all over the world avenging their religion, their prophet, their “honor”. This is such a profound opposite of our Judeo-Christian heritage! Jesus says to LOVE our enemies! Do we “all worship the same god”? I think not!

LOVE  But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. Matt 5:24
