Forgiveness as Blight, Mercy as Curse, Love as Contempt of God

Cheap Forgiveness

Let me further explain.

The church has used Christian forgiveness to send spouses back to their abusers, and their abusers have killed them.

The church has used Christian forgiveness to mute victims of incest, rape, and other forms of sexual assault and harassment.

The church has used Christian forgiveness to quell quests for justice from the days of American slavery to today.

The church has used Christian forgiveness to opt out of its’ responsibility to stand for justice and righteousness.

Beware of those whose call for forgiveness comes at the cost of justice.

Joel McDurmon rightfully adds: “I fully support this. Abusers always demand cheap forgiveness.”

It’s time that abusers got what they earned, as opposed to what they want.

Your Eye Shall Not Pity

But if anyone hates his neighbor and lies in wait for him and attacks him and strikes him fatally so that he dies, and he flees into one of these cities, then the elders of his city shall send and take him from there, and hand him over to the avenger of blood, so that he may die. Your eye shall not pity him, but you shall purge the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, so that it may be well with you.

Deuteronomy 19, ESV

Rape and sexual abuse are forms of hatred of your neighbour. And not just merely ‘run-of-the-mill’ hatred, like malicious lies, gossip, and theft: but hatred worthy of execution by the hand of the magistrate.

It’s time that abusers got what they earned, as opposed to what they want.
