My heart doesn't understand what's going on lately.
But today kind of iced the cake.
I have been so confused by people's reactions to Bin Laden's death.
I guess maybe I should back up. Last night when I watched as the President spoke the crowd in front of the White House grew rapidly. People were chanting "USA, USA..." I can't say that last night I wasn't slightly relieved that this man has been taken out of power and that innocent people would not die because of him. I can't say that I don't think he should have paid the time for orchestrating the whole 9/11 events. This man caused a lot of pain!
Today I find myself absolutly in shock that people are saying things like "now he can burn in hell with his other buddies." I can't believe that people are celebrating his death. But then I didn't loose anyone on that day so I can't even begin to understand what kind of closure this may bring to those that did.
But for people to be almost giddy in their commenting about him burning in hell makes my stomach turn.
I just don't think Jesus' Facebook status would be
"Oh happy Day!!!! Bin Laden is dead!!!!"
I know that not everyone saying these things maybe Christians but there are some that are saying these things that profess to be. How can someone say in one breath God is Love, in the next vengeance is mine says the Lord and then in the next say something like "I wonder what the expression was on his face when he took his last breath and looked on the face of Jesus to realize he will spend eternity of fire..."
i dunno just trying to figure it all out.
Here is a great blog.
And yet another great blog.
