Osama Bin Laden dead - a Christian reaction

May 2, 2011, 8:43am

Okay, news broke out last night about Osama Bin Laden's death, how the US forces found his $1,000,000 mansion bunker and killed him in a fire fight in Pakistan. The world has looked on and especially in the US there was celebration.

How does a Christian react to this? While we never rejoice at the loss of a soul who will wind up in hell for eternity, we can take comfort that the Lord's justice has prevailed in bringing this agent of evil to and end. This was an enemy of the Lord as well as he declared Christians to be infidels and that they should be killed. You take on the Lord and you will be sorry! Osama has found out the hard way what it means to go against the Lord.

I do not rejoice that the man is dead, he will be in hell separated from God for eternity, I am glad his reign of terror is over, and I pray that none will try and assume the mantle of leadership from him in the Al Queda organization.

This is an historic day, it is the same date that Hitler was killed on many years earlier. As this will have affects the world over, may we keep in mind the words of Jesus,Matthew 5:43 - 45 "43 �You have heard that it was said, �Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.� 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." May the Lord bless you and keep you!
