His is the face of evil throughout the world, especially here in the USA. His very existence an affront to the Christian God who will surely see that he and all radical Islamists roast in the lakes of fire for all eternity.
Osama was bad too.
Thankfully May 21,2011 is almost here; me and the other paragons of virtue will be leaving you non-believers behind anyway.
Ron, you will not like this answer and it is not to be a smart alec....but
I have served in Viet Nam and Panama, and worked 21 years for the World bank, and I am sorry but... at age 61 I have to say this
"God is not with us in every decision we make as a nation" we step in a lot of stuff Ron, and many times we dont have the whole story at all. We protect our self Interests, and not God's
Our Causes so far are : Rubber supply... (South America) Lithium Mining for batteries (Afganastan)... Oil (Middle East) China's economy (importing massive amounts to keep them employed).... Lybia (Banking and world dollar Trade) not Oil like most think....but medeling in projects in Third world Africa with Jumping off points in Lybia and The Ivory Coast... Problems in Isreal ( trade, terror, treaties at the expense of millions of poorer Nations who also have needs) the list is a distinguished one believe me)
and that list is very long and varried Ron and God has not to much to do with it. Except, maybe, to Pray for the good Folks who will go and fight there and loose their lives. They are indeed the best we have, and we offer them up for Man made causes, not God's rights.
I have a 20 year moratorium before I can write what I have seen, and man when its time, I am going to. We need a good reality dose in the USA right now Ron. Religion clouds truth with emotions, not facts.
as for Osama, he comitted acts of terror and war against many people all around the world, Not just the USA, and his death is well justified.
Also Ron please consider this: I have read your posts and they are excelent with Religious facts and passages, but....
Religion is a set of expected behaviors that like minded folks think God wants. All Religions act this way, Baptists, Methodists, Catholics, Church of christ, Antioch baptists, free will baptists, the list is endless from the First Church of God to the 7th, but....
But If the story is to be believed, all that Honestly can be said is God created man..."NOT" Religions.
Man created religion, and broke it out into sects of Beliefe making claims their version is the only truth....but is it? Honestly, is it?
consider that The story of Jesus if it is to be believed- documents many moments where he suposidly railed against people that though they had him all figured out!
Just consider if you will, Politics is also like a Religion, and statements Like God stands with America maybe not quite not all the facts, it is possible He also looks over all other Countries too!
I offer this for thought only, not hatred or smart a... cause. Just saying, maybe we need to slow the retoric some and relax.
Like I said, He created Humans, not religion. Man took that one on himself. And we have had enemy ever sense.
Please listen to Earnest about Psychology, he has some healing words if you will consider
I am off my soap box now, sorry for the length of this
You make some excellent points there - not sure exactly what they are (I don't do politics), but obviously well thought through. I only hope I am still around on May 22 as I have a dentist appointment and they charge for cancellations.
I'm hoping that if there is a banquet in heaven after we die, I wind up seated next to Bin Laden. It would mean that somehow he had become worthy of living in the presence of ultimate love, and I would have an unbelievable story to listen to as to how god really works. It would mean somehow he would have been found. More miraculously, it would mean I would have been, too. Now that would be a great god!
You must be terrified of dying in a car, or cancer, or pneumonia, as you have a far higher chance of being affected by any of these than you do of terrorism. Be careful. Everyone and everything really ARE out to get you.
One lone woman has the only right words for this entire post. She goes down in history as the ultimate authority in religious chat. She's faced persecution, hate, and misunderstanding, but through it all, her image has continued thoughout all internet-nity. With this I give tribute to her:
Because there is no hell. Osama will raise again on the judgement day. He will be asked if he repents. If he does, he will be accepted as a citizen in Jesus' kingdom. Or he will die a second time, This time permanently. This is the fate that awaits billions of others. He is one among the billions who murdered or not murdered he is one among the billions who blasphemed or not blasphemed. He is one among the billions who cheated or not cheated. He is one among the billions who told on others or not told on others.
God does not see multiple murders as more hideous than one murder. He is nothing special
