Thoughts on the Killing of Osama Bin Laden: What Are Your Thoughts?
Do we rejoice in the death of the wicked? No, because the Lord does not.
Can we however be grateful and rejoice that justice has been done? That the Lord has, through the instrumentality of the kingdom of the left, exercised this justice? Yes.
Here are a couple thoughts on the killing of Osama Bin Laden that well summarize what I’m feeling and thinking this morning. How about you?
FIRST, from a Lutheran pastor:
Please remember that the special forces had their God-given vocation to do last night, bearing that sword not held in vain. One may not like the use of lethal force on principle, but there are honorable men who exercise that force and bear the price, with that just sword, of taking human lives. While especially-squeamish people wring their hands back here, please also remember all that runs through the special forces’ minds even after a ‘righteous kill.’ It’s just hard for me to be an earnest, handwringing parson right now. Justice frequently needs frail human souls to carry it out.
SECOND, from Winston Churchill:
“We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.” – Winston Churchill
