“Vengeance is Mine sayeth the Lord” is strictly a karmic viewpoint.
It is a real misperception of truth, by which man assigns his own evil past to God. The “evil conscience” from the past has nothing to do with God. He did not create it, and He does not maintain it. God does NOT believe in karmic retribution at all. His Divine mind does not create that way. HE does not hold the evil deeds of a man even against HIMSELF.
Is it likely, then, that He would hold against any man the evil that ANOTHER did?
Be very sure that you recognize how impossible this assumption really is, and how ENTIRELY it arises from misprojection. This kind of error is responsible for a host of related fallacies, including the misbelief that God rejected man and forced him out of the Garden of Eden.
“Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord” is easily explained if you remember that ideas increase only by being shared. This quotation therefore emphasizes the fact that vengeance CANNOT be shared. Give it therefore to the holy spirit, who will undo it in you because it does not BELONG in your mind, which is part of God.
The wicked shall perish, true or false?
The wicked shall perish” is merely a statement of fact, if the word “perish” is properly understood.
Every loveless thought MUST be undone, and even the word “undone” is fearful to the ego, which interprets “I am undone” as “I am destroyed.”
The ego will NOT be destroyed, because it is part of YOUR thought. But because it is uncreative, and therefore unsharing, it WILL be reinterpreted entirely, to release you from fear.
The part of your thought which you have given TO the ego will merely return to the Kingdom, where your whole mind BELONGS. The ego is a form of ARREST, but arrest is merely delay. It does NOT involve the concept of police at all, although the ego welcomes that interpretation.
You CAN delay the completion of the Kingdom , but you CANNOT introduce the concept of ASSAULT into it.
When Jesus said, “I am come as a light into the world,” this light is surely shared with you. Do not look to the ego’s dark glass.
It is still true that “Where you look to find yourself is up to you.”
There can BE no case against a child of God, and every witness to guilt in God’s creations is bearing false witness to God Himself.
