The different between revenge and revolution

I develop this topic over a comment a Christian brother made on my blog post yesterday in a topic I titled. Why are you fighting for freedom, was Jesus a freedom fighter and he said that revenge is for the weak people. I have come to clear the difference between revenge and revolution and here is how

  1. Revenge _ is an Action of harming someone in return for an injury or wrong
  2. Revolution _ is a fundamental and relatively sudden change in political power and political organization which occurs when the population revolts against the government, typically due to perceived oppression or political incompetence

Revenge is to say ‘an eye for an eye’ or ‘an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth’ to refer to the idea that people should be punished according to the way in which they offended, for example if they hurt someone, they should be hurt equally badly in return.

But REVOLUTION is to REFORM, As a lack of human rights that are manifested in the daily lives of people in the society. The quality or fact of being unjust; inequity regarding fair play especially in social and economic treatment of workers. A situation in which the rights of a person or a group of people are ignored

On the other hand, social injustice is also the way unjust actions are done in the society. Social injustice occurs in a situation where the equals are treated unequally and the unequal is treated equally. The commonest examples of social injustice in a typical African society include discrimination and that usher in revolution in cure

  1. As written “Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord”. It is only human to want to hurt another when they hurt us, but when we place all into the Lords hands He truly will repay those who are our enemy. I do believe to fight for our freedoms is a God given right! He goes before us to the battle. Blessings Always.
