It sounds good to say:


I'm not about violence; be it physical, emotional, or verbal.

But not all violence is bad. "With violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down."i "The day of the Lord comes, Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger."ii And "wounds of a friend" are "faithful."iii

  1. Revelation 18:

    21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.

  2. Isaiah 13:

    9 Behold, the day of the Lord comes,
    Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger,
    To lay the land desolate;
    And He will destroy its sinners from it.

  3. Proverbs 27:

    6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend,
    But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
