Cursing Our Enemies?
A few weeks ago during our Wednesday night series on Lamentations, the concept of cursing our enemies during prayer came up. It seemed as if there are multiple places in the Bible where people call on God to be wrathful towards the speaker’s enemies. This creates a potential problem with other teachings of the Bible to love our enemies. As I was recently encouraged to investigate this more, I came across one perspective that I wanted to see other people’s opinions of. God has the right to curse people and be vengeful towards them because he is God. We, on the other hand, do not have that right. The potential way to merge these ideas is that the speaker is actually speaking a curse from God. I thought this idea was interesting, but I am not sure how justified it is. Share your thoughts.
