I know Osama Bin Laden is the master mind behind 911, I know he is responsible for the deaths of thousands of men, women and children; does that however make it OK for us to rejoice in his death? I would say that we can say with a 99.9999 percent certainty that this man died outside of the Grace of God. There is no sign whatsoever that he ever converted to Christianity or repented for his sins.
Lets look another man in history who was responsible for the deaths of thousands of human persons.
Dr Bernard Nathanson the former abortionist turned pro-life activist killed tens of thousands of human beings himself. This man was not only an abortionist, he helped get abortion legal in the United States. He repented and turned his life around and we all embraced him as an ally and good Christian man. When he dies we celebrated a man who did so much good and helped so many to see the truth. It does not matter how many people you kill or what you do; there can be forgiveness in Christ.
I just have to ask why we see people dancing in the streets and celebrating the death of a man who just like Dr Nathanson needed the hope of Christ? I know that our nation was under attack and that Osama Bin Laden was an active participant in a war; but does that make his death any less tragic as his soul is likely in hell?
Should we rejoice that a man’s soul will be suffering for eternity; I don’t believe we should. We should be relieved that this man will no longer have the power to hurt people, but not celebrating and singing songs in the streets.
My heart breaks for every soul who dies without the Hope and Blood of Christ, and that includes Usama Bin Laden.
Please tell me what you think?
