Revenge Is The Lord’s
I’m continuing to read the Bible in the mornings before work. I started with 1 Thessalonians and have moved on to the “sequel”. I ran across this verse:
2 Thessalonians 1:6-9
New International Version (NIV)
6 God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you 7 and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.
This is a picture of Jesus that I’m not particularly taken with. I’m not very interested in him paying back the trouble others have caused me.
