The Real Tragedy of Our World

I do not rejoice in Osama Bin Laden's death. True he was a terrrorist and mass murderer. He paid for his crimes with hs life. I read the Word of God and see that God is not happy that Bin Laden was killed. God would have been pleased if Bin Laden would have repented and returned to God (See Ezekiel 33:11 and 2 Peter 3:8-9). I have to question myself as to how willing I would be to forgive Bin Laden for his crimes. Christ forgives all sins when one turns to Him. Honestly, I would have great difficulty forgiving  those who attack this country or murder people.

Truly, it is tragic that Bin Laden had to die. Our world is not at all as God wants ti to be. God sent Jesus to live anong us, die for us and be raised up from the dead to empower all people to return to God. So, don't forget those who died in the 9-11 attack; instead pray that we can all remember to do good in our part of the world. Jesus is changing this world one life at a time. Let us live ours according to the grace we have received.
