Vengeance and Violence

Bible Text: Genesis 4:8-24 | Preacher: Pastor Daniel Roels

Social scientist Michael McCullough believes that revenge is hard-wired in our brains because brain scans show our reward centers are activated when we get revenge and the other person “gets what they deserve.” And which of us hasn’t felt that satisfaction when justice is done – but is it justice or revenge? And what does God do in this world of cyclic violence? We’ll start with Cain and go from there.
