A foray into theology
19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
It's both astonishing and depressing to see the lengths to which self-proclaimed Christians will go to in their attempt to avoid that passage. The Web is littered with phantasmagorical ticking bombs built so that Christians may pretend that their entirely un-Christian desire for vengance is instead a noble attempt to save lives.
Everyone, stop it. You're only barely kidding yourselves. Do you really think that you're deceiving God?
