Is America being chastised by God?
Part 6: God alone chooses who, how and when He will punish
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but [rather] give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Romans 12:19
There is another important point I'd like to make on this topic of God's chastisement and wrath. If He decides to chastise our nation, or to vent His wrath on the wicked, it is 100% His choice on how and when He does it. No Christian has any business whatsoever trying to use the Bible as an excuse to commit illegal acts for the purpose of doing God's chastising or punishing for Him.
Let me be clear that I'm not talking about a local church exercising it's Biblical right to chastise members with church discipline. Nor am I referring to arresting terrorists or going to war to defend ourselves against terrorists and terrorist sponsoring nations. I fully support President Bush's efforts in Iraq and in other countries as well if the trail of terror leads elsewhere. What I am referring to is illegal acts like attacks against our government, blowing up abortion clinics, or attacks against Muslims in this country. If there is any just cause for God to act against an individual, group or even a government or nation, He has reserved this right for Himself.
