1. Dr. Brown. I have a question for you which has been bothering me for sometime. The word talks of forgiveness to those who have wronged us. Dr. Brown often I have experienced that my forgiveness doesn’t help the person stop hurting others, he/she becomes more fearless and keeps doing the same wrongful things to others as well. I have experiences that there is no retribution. I have been wronged, i lost many precious days, months of my life in sadness and tears. But the one who wronged me, becomes powerful, stronger, richer. I suffered but he did not. I quit my job after abuse, but he was promoted to vice president. he is now more daring.

  2. Jenna,

    Those of us who are on the side of Christ have to suffer in this life–injustice, persecution, etc, because the world is currently in the hands of the prince of this world, the Devil. We are sojourners in this ungodly land. Our true home is with Our Father in Heaven. It is necessary that we suffer now, while we are here. Christ said, “Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.” He also said, “A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” Ultimately, our reward will come not in this life but in the next. Those who laugh now will be weeping later, for they will also receive what is owed to them. The just judge, God Himself, will administer justice to all. Take heart: God sees the good that you do, and that is all that matters. (Remember, even the hairs on your head are numbered.) We are answerable only to God, and we seek only the recompense that is eternal life.
