Justice

Here is an excerpt from my up-coming book, Forgiveness Fail: How the Millennial Church can Rediscover a Forgiveness Process that Works.

When talking about forgiveness, the issue of Justice inevitably comes up. I argue that we have a right to see justice, but before I can explain that it’s God’s job to do justice on our behalf, Angry Andy jumps the gun…

 

Perfect! I have the right for justice. I am finally justified in using my cross-bow with the exploding arrows on that little punk who insulted my mullet. And, my wife told me it was a worthless purchase… ha!

Not so fast. Seriously, don’t. I don’t want to be held liable for you going all crazy-redneck on some innocent kid who told you the truth in love.
