I've read that people today find it difficult to read, much less how to interpret, the OT imprecatory Psalms that are interspersed with the Book of Psalms, since in these days the NT commands God's children to love even people (who most likely--but not always--aren't born-again Christians) who seem to be dead set in opposing both individual born-again Christians themselves, or groups of them, or Christian faith-based organizations. My neighbor, who by his own testimony, says that when he and/or his wife (who is born-again; the man, I can't say is born-again, but is "A good man as the world would evaluate him,") try to read these kind of Psalms to their young children--all of whom are ages 10 and younger--they have real difficulty trying to explain these Psalms to them, especially in this "God is love/Love is God" kind of world that he seems to think all born-again Christians hold to. In my own personal experiences, I definitely wouldn't agree with his outlook of "Born-Again Christianity," but that's a topic for another thread. My question is this: Just how should we interpret these imprecatory Psalms, especially to either brand-new Christians or, as in the case of my neighbor, probably isn't a born-again Christian? I'd really like to know how you'd approach interpreting these imprecatory Psalms to his 10 YO & younger children. Some specific NT verses on this would really be helpful to me. Thanks in advance for any advice that my BB friends can give me on dealing with this situation.
