Jungle Justice

It’s any ideology that inspires beheadings, terrorism, targeted killings, lynching, and all forms of extra-judicial killings. It’s the logic that justifies violence in the name of God (John 16:2)—or security, or freedom, or democracy. But jungle justice reaches beyond religion and politics. It also includes OUR own thirst for revenge. Our vigilante spirit to persecute without prosecution. Our tendency to judge hastily without full facts. Our assassinations by false accusations, slander, and gossip. Our labeling of people as criminals, sinners, enemies, or unwanted so as to destroy them. True justice protects the “innocent until proven guilty,” accords with God’s Law, and trusts God for vengeance (Romans 12:17-19). Jungle justice is injustice and is as deadly as witchcraft!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
