I saw or read in the news how people get great satisfaction and feel that justice is served when criminals are caught and sentenced to death. Does this have anything to do with getting even or seeking revenge? What if the criminal executed, like the thief crucified next to Jesus, goes to heaven and you own present spiritual state in this world really isn't in any great shape ~ how do you feel now? What I want to say is that Jesus made it clear to us that we are not to judge others and that God will judge us as we judge them. True justice is served by God alone in the end. Our work in this life is to forgive.
