A novel concept-should we pray for Osama bin Laden?
I’ve seen some pictures on the news lately of people celebrating the death of Bin Laden. Disgusting.
Don’t get me wrong, the US did a service to the world by killing him. But should we really celebrate? If we’re Christian, we should not. Jesus tells us we should love our enemies as we love ourselves. That does not mean we have to like them, condone what they do or stand for. Personally, I don’t like President Obama. I cannot stand what he stands for. But I pray every day that he’ll make the right choice. And honestly, not publicly, but privately, I pray for all those in the world who would do us harm.
I do not condone the way the information was extracted. I do not condone that it was done. I do not condone war. But realistically, we owe the US Navy a debt of gratitude.
But celebrating as if we won the World Series or something? While I understand it, I don’t condone that either.
