One Punch Kills Evil!
Soul Snack 172/14 ... It is impossible to escape the knowledge of evil in a world where darkness is multiplying by the second.
The earth has known evil since just after creation, well prior to any recorded time.
Within each human are the divinely constructed scales of justice. Children know this clearly.
Justice screams from within us all, EVIL IS NOT FAIR - SATISFY ME!
Evil interrupts these appeals for justice with its own self-promoting solutions. The plea for justice bellows YES, listen to these solutions of vengeance; and so another eye is lost and another tooth smashed.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. (Matthew 5:38-39)
(The Old Testament legislation of an eye for an eye from Exodus 21:24 was ever only intended to limit vengeance, not promote it.)
The hidden agenda, the unseen heart of evil is to increase its rule and extend its influence.
Evil will always seek to reproduce its intentions and never restrict its activity, it cannot know self-restraint.
Humans (Christians and pagans alike) are the unwitting tools and fools of evil, providing the resource and support base for all its wickedness.
Jesus whispers - turn the other cheek, but who will hear, who will gently throw this punch?
