Final justice (Ecclesiastes 8:10-15)

‘Final justice’. It sounds like the title of a Schwarzenegger movie. Evil dudes getting away with heinous crimes, and plots to destroy society, and for gratuitously killing Arnie’s wife and daughter. A big mistake! Schwarzenegger shows his big guns and blows them all away. We cheer the destruction of the bad guys because deep down we believe that injustice should be punished and people brought to account. Ecclesiastes touches a few nerves as it explores the heartaches of unpunished evil and the question of final justice.
