  1. First Bin Laden and now Gaddafi. Amazing that they don’t take these people alive.

  2. A scripture comes to mind,

    ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live.’ Ezek. 33:11

  3. A few other things the Bible says about the wicked:

    “God judgeth the righteous, And God is angry with the wicked every day.” Ps 7.11
    Actually “with the wicked” was somehow inserted in the scripture in the King James version, you will find it in italics thus indicating. The Septuagint (SAAS) reads:
    “My righteous help is from God, Who saves the upright in heart.”

    KJV- “Evil shall slay the wicked” Ps 34.21
    SAAS- “The death of sinners is evil”

    KJV- “But the seed of the wicked shall be cut off” Ps 37.
    SAAS- “And the seed of the ungodly shall be utterly destroyed”

    KJV- “The Lord preserveth all them that love Him: But all the wicked will He destroy” Ps 145.20
    SAAS- “The Lord keeps all who love Him, But all the sinners He shall utterly destroy.”

    The above are just a few of many possible examples. It is interesting that with many scriptures the KJV treats the wicked more harshly than the LXX based SAAS even to the point of adding words as in the example from Ps 7.11. Perhaps this has an impact on how Western Christians view the subject.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
