God slow to anger

While indeed the Lord Jesus tells us to love our enemies, does that mean we should close our eyes to the injustices that they commit?

Is justice for the underdog, not love?

Even in the New Testament, God says vengeance is mine because He is the judge.

Yet many people say that a God who allows all the badness in the world cannot be a God of love.

Consequently, if God punishes people He is not a God of love and also if He does not punish people for their wrongs, He is not loving either.

Therefore, it is a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

However, the Bible tells us that God is slow to anger, confirming He gives people a lot of chances and warnings.

He had, for example, a lot of patience with the Pharaoh of Egypt and many plagues were sent as warnings before God helped Israel to escape from the slavery of Egypt.

Yes, there are many loving Christians around the world who are very badly treated by the people around them, but it will be a while before God will act and avenge them.

I suggest Mr Ratnam buys himself a Bible and reads it from cover to cover to see that the God of the Old Testament is the God of Jesus.
