Chase them down in your anger, destroying them beneath the Lord’s heavens. Lamentations 3:64-66 (NLT) Jeremiah, in this lament, ends by asking God to get back at his enemies – Give them hard and stubborn hearts, and then let your curse fall on them!

It simply does not make sense. The idea is this – Christianity is resting, trusting, and relying on the work of Jesus on our behalf. Sounds strange, right? It does for Christians, too. More than half of the time, we don’t really get this idea. It is something that we grapple with for the entirety of our lives. However, this is the cornerstone of what our faith is built on. No other faith lays claim to this truth except for the Christian faith.
