Default Romans 12:19 - 07-22-2018, 09:58 PM

True Christians ™,


I was reading the KJV1611 Bible today and something stuck out and I wanted to share this:


Romans 12:19 King James Version (KJV)

19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

It's been God's reminder to me that no matter how much I get wronged by the unsaved, here in Duluth, I need to let God handle them because in the end this is going to happen to those who choose not to believe:


Revelation 20:11-15 King James Version (KJV)

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Thank you Jesus for this promise!

Romans 12:19 is a much misunderstood verse. If taken literally, it precludes a police force and ultimately, the military. Clearly God did not want this: the OT is filled with military exploits and in the NT, Jesus recognizes the power of the Roman State and indeed the power of the Jews. You will also notice that the Gospel writers constantly harp on about obeying your superiors, etc.

In the light of this, we may wonder why God requires men to stone the abomination to death, or remove an objectionable race from the face of His Land, and simply does not send down a thunderbolt, an earthquake, flood, famine, plague, or simply smite them with blindness, etc.

The answer is twofold:
1. If God did that it would be absolute evidence and that precludes Faith.
2. We often ask “Why are we here?” not only in the narrow sense of “Why did we come to another display of children’s paintings?”but to ask about our purpose on Earth. The answer is that God has given us a job – to maintain His Laws. We do what we are told to do and that serves God.





“We must reassert that the essence of Christianity is the love of obedience to God’s Laws and that how that complete obedience is used or implemented does not concern us.”
