The case is closed. The girl's grand-dad tired of endless circumlocution decides to take revenge of his own. Written by Igor Shvetsov <igoryok@dialup.ptt.ru>

Revenge is not a Christian way
12 February 2011 | by (Moldova) – See all my reviews

I've watched this movie before I got on the way after Jesus Christ. Then I liked it, because it's our human nature to want revenge against people who hurt us.

It is understandable that evil will be ultimately punished by God, but the revenge is not a Christian solution and it treads on a dangerous path of justifying violence instead of love and forgiveness, which come from God. For instance, Jesus Christ, Son of God, the only sinless human who ever lived on earth, was killed unjustly on the cross, but He didn't seek vengeance, when the political/judicial system failed Him.

Now after learning what Jesus Christ told us I see that this movie lies that you can get away with crimes if you had a righteous cause, like this old man that hunted the rapists of his granddaughter, because the police did nothing.

Jesus Christ told us to forgive other people and love our enemies, yes it's hard, but we must try to imitate God like he does if we repent our sins in Jesus' name, even if there would be times when we stray away from this straight path.

Also it's God right to do justice, not mine.

It'd be a different movie, if the rapists were actually injured without the implications of that old man.

I know it's easy to say, but if you're really Christian or want to know about Jesus' way I urge you to ask a priest or read the bible to see what Jesus Christ said, instead of accepting this kind of false "righteous" vigilantism.
