Ezekiel 18:23 “Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign LORD. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?”
Last night, like countless millions, I was glued to the TV watching the reports of Osama bin Laden’s death; it was in fact 3am when the TV was finally turned off. Though I considered posting about it then, I spent the next hour reading the different responses to the story on the internet, primarily on Christian boards and forums. Some of it was pretty ugly. Some people had their comments edited plus were openly rebuked by moderators for quoting the above scripture from Ezekiel 18:23. Others received similar treatment for expressing their discomfort at watching the crowds on TV celebrating Osama’s death. And I’ll admit that bothered me also.
Anyway, the CPost has an interesting article posted today,
