It has been about a week since the death of the most wanted man in the world, Usama Bin Ladin. It has been crazy this past week. It’s actually amazing to see how the death of one person has brought America closer and the people becoming more patriotic. A lot of things have entered my mind this past week through the death of Bin Ladin, and the American people that have rose up with their hatred towards Bin Ladin and their pride in their country. I am having so many crazy thoughts that just don’t fit what everyone else in America is thinking. I feel God has really spoke to me this past week, so I feel like my first couple of topics on this site should be about what the Bible says about the topics going on lately. These topics can be very controversial, Christians that read this might really get ticked off but hey, it’s biblical, so I hope you read this with an open heart, and have a biblical sense when you read this. Non Christians will definitely disagree with the subject but hopefully everyone understands that it’s not about being a proud American, it’s about being more and more like Christ.

Everyone in this country has hated Bin Ladin as far as I can remember. The tragic events of 9/11 has really fueled the fire the American people had towards him. For almost ten years, we have started war, and have been on the search for Usama Bin Ladin. We were looking to avenge the deaths of the lost ones from 9/11 and we have never forgot the deaths in are search. Well, we finally got him. We gave just to a horrific man, that deserved to die because of what he did. He is completely evil, wicked and filled with sin and deserves eternity in hell. These statements that I just said, is all I am hearing from supposedly Christians. I am hearing all these statements and I am just wondering, have you completely forgot about the Jesus and God’s grace in your own act to be a prideful American? Really? We are rejoicing in the horrendous eternal sentencing of a man that has sin. Were talking about a person that is evil like we are good. This man don’t deserve God’s grace but we do? I’m not hating America for killing a man that triggered this war that we are in, but I am disgusted in the way some Christians are acting to this news. Here’s a couple of verses from the Bible that really go against the actions that have been showed lately.

  • Matt 5:44-(But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,) Love your enemies? Even if they persecute us? Well…if it’s thousands of people this verse opts out.
  • John 8:7-(If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.) Are you now trying to say that we are equal to this man? I’m better!
  • Romans 3:10-( as it is written:”There is none righteous, not even one) What about me?

Now I’m not trying to defend this man. Clearly he was full of sin, and what he did was wrong. But Christians should look at this from a different perspective. A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE! We see that Jesus loved everyone, even the people that put him on the cross and persecuted him. We are suppose to be more like this man. A man that loved everyone no matter what they did. Bin Ladin obviously was not a believer in Christ but still, i believe you can receive God’s grace even if you are a mass murderer terrorist. Look at the greatest preacher of all time, Paul. This man, like Bin Ladin was responsible for the death of many many people. God’s grace is bigger than sin. We are all filled with sin. The difference between us and them is that we have God’s grace. Now there is definitely scripture that backs up God satisfying himself in giving just to other, but he also is sadden for the lost. I recommend reading John Piper’s post on the mixed emotions of God and the Death of Bin Ladin. Here is the link:

Once again, I am not hating on our government, America as a country, or the people. But Christians should remember what Jesus says about loving everyone. Even the worst of the worst. We are called to be different than this place we live in. This society admins what comes around goes around. Christians should not look at this the same. We should understand that anyone can receive God’s grace no matter how sinful they are.
