It's official, Christians will divide over anything. Somehow the death of Osama or Usama (whatever his name is now) has succeeded in creating a debate among Christians. Don't get me wrong, I'm not disagreeing with scripture that says God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. But I'm also not going to wag my finger at people who are acting in very natural way to the death of a brutal killer. What's sad to me is that it just seems like the same ole same ole. Christians are becoming so good at telling people what they shouldn't be doing but not telling us why or even more important how. And if you are going to be so bold as to tell people that God said they shouldn't rejoice in the death of a cruel mass murderer at least follow through and tell them why and how, as to not make God look like an out of touch figment of our imagination. My favorites are the Christians who are saying "this makes me sad to see all these people reacting this way". Let us know when it makes you sad enough to do something besides tweet and post about it.
*Breath* My point is this, we should never talk about the wrath of God without talking about the grace of God. We should never speak of the things that we can't/shouldn't do as Christians without talking about all the many blessing and freedoms we have because we do follow Christ.
If you are one who is saying " I just don't understand how people can rejoice in this" Stop it!! Yes you can. And if you can't it's time reconnect with normal people Oh Super Spiritual One. And if you are one who is overly excited by death be careful and don't forget we all deserve the same fate.
Now can we please get back on the same page and start reaching out to the lost again.
Gosh we complicate things. I'd so be an atheist if it wasn't so obvious that God was real.
