Vengeance or Justice?: 'Monday Morning Musings - July 19, 2021'

Vengeance is based on a self-need for vindication, or satisfaction. It is rooted in desires of having experienced a personal wrong that requires some sort of “equilibrating” payment. There is no self-need in God, of any kind, period. Therefore, our human understanding of vengeance, including that which supposedly belongs to God, needs to be abandoned and a more scripturally sound concept, faithful to both the nature of God and Scripture needs to be embraced. Vindictive retribution is an insult to the nature of God in Christ.
