Anyway, CO, God is interested in justice. Look at stories such as Sussana and the two Elders or Judges; the story of King David, and many other kings of Israel.
I assure you man, whatever happens in secret will be declared in the rooftops. God hears your cry for justice- it will come- not for your sake, but for God, because the person that was victimized was Jesus. It was His name that was profaned. God will take that seriously.
Yes, to whom more is given, more is expected.
Anyway, I guess, try to be compassionate as you would to others who wronged you. Don't judge others in hypocrisy. And remember what we pray: "Forgive us our trespasses as we have forgiven those who trespass against us."
We can not hide behind a cloak or title in the eternal court room, if not the human court.
You really do need to ask God to grant you the grace to forgive
Do we want God to be just with us?
If He treated us as we deserve then we would be beyond hope. But the fact is that we are forgiven by God, and we treat Him much more badly than anyone could treat us. When he hung on the cross it was for my sins, and it was for your sins. Did he deserve that? Was it fair on Him? Why did He not insist on treating us as we deserved?
Why do you want justice? What will it change in terms of you seeking forgiveness from God for your own sins - which is the main thing we should be concerned about.
This is not to diminish anything that might happen to us. But most of us suffer indignities, injustices, bad treatment from others. Yet we are taught not to allow these things to cast us down.
1 Peter 2:19-25 For it is a fine thing if, when moved by your conscience to please God, you suffer patiently when wronged. (20) What credit is it if you sin and patiently receive a beating for it? But if you suffer for doing good and take it patiently, you have God's approval. (21) This is, in fact, what you were called to do, because Christ also suffered for you and left an example for you to follow in his steps. (22) "He never committed a sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth." (23) When he was insulted, he did not retaliate. When he suffered, he did not threaten but made it his habit to commit the matter to the one who judges fairly. (24) He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to those sins and live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. (25) For you were like sheep that kept going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
And you were not even interested in responding to my PM's!!!
According to the interviews shown on TV of the families of the victims, they all have forgiven the murderers.If this isn't a miracle, nor a fruit of God's Holy Spirit, I don't know what is.They all have said they remarkably feel comforted, and although sad, they have nothing against those who carried out this act of violence and terror.Forgiveness is part of our raison d'etre as Christians. It says in the Bible that God's ways is foolishness to man - and I see that. It doesnt make sense why anyone would want to forgive; but you have to look at it this way:Those who killed really need our prayers so they can repent, how will they know God unless through our actions? And our actions in which they are expected to know God is through us showing love, forgiveness, kindness and charity.These are the tools we use to evangelise our faith.
