Whoah, I dissagree. You say “the Bible shows us [that justice always satisfies] time and time again,” but that is not true. I’m not satisfied with justice. It is just for me to mow the lawn. It’s my job, I’m supposed to do it, it is right, it is just, for me to do it. But I find it much more satisfying to NOT mow the lawn. There’s this great peace that comes with not sweating in the boiling sunlight and steering around chocolate muts that I’d really rather plow right over. When I do mow the lawn I am hot and sweaty and a good bit of my time has been used up. Did that satisfy me? NO NO NO IT DID NOT! Further, in cases of revenge, if Ever jane went and smashed all my lego creations that I am most pleased by, the ones that took hours of pure genius to put together, I would not by satisfied if she were spanked. Or put in time-out. Or beaten black and blue smashed on a bed of nails and then burned. Or…
No, there would be nothing to that would satisfy my wrath. Justice doesn’t satisfy, not even infinite payback would satisfy.
