The Bible pretty much lays it on the line. When the Bible speaks, it's God talking. Hard to argue with God.
Proverbs 11:10 - When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices, And when the wicked perish, there is glad shouting.
So, when Hitler, Stalin, Khadafi, Kim Il Sung, Hugo Chavez, Osama Bin Laden, Che Guevara, Arafat, Saddam Hussein, Peter Jennings and Helen Thomas died, a lot of folks rejoiced. And, many of us are waiting for others to pass on like ANY of the leftists who have turned this nation upside down morally and in every way. When God gets ready, the wicked perish. And, we must remember, he says in Romans 12 that "Vengeance is mine, I will repay...." and it is not for us to do anything to hasten the day of death for such evil leaders as we have now. God will take care of business when He gets ready. It is up to us to live morally, responsibly and to stand up for what is right and not cave to the interests trying to force false teaching and lifestyles upon us.
We do NOT have to give in to these demented protesters trying to rewrite moral law in regard to the Zimmerman case. And, God will deal with them. When they encourage their young to assault innocent people who very well may have no point of view at all on the matter for absolutely no other reason than to avenge the death of the criminal Trayvon Martin, then their young will die as well. Who in his or her right mind is going to stand there and just ALLOW a thug to beat them to death? Not very many. Justice served...by the moral laws of God.
Arafat passed real good. .. pfffffftttt
Mubarak and Sharon .. staying power
Helen Thomas is not on the same level of evil as Hitler and Stalin
Nor Peter Jennings.
And yet there is this Proverbs 24: 17-18:
17 Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles ; 18 Or the LORD will see it and be displeased , And turn His anger away from him.
Agreed. I won't say anything negative about the dead, so I'll just leave it at:
No, but the evil have willing handmaidens.
As sinners, we are all on the same level. God abhors all sin and despises it in equal measure. Were it not so, God would not have sent us a Savior to die to redeem all of it.
I didn't care for Helen Thomas. I don't care for Harry Reid or Barack Obama. But since God is not willing that any should perish, I will not condemn their sin as worse than any of my own.
This could also be interpreted as a simple statement of fact, not a recommendation. The propriety of a celebration would depend on the circumstances.
Absolutely no apologies or soft-peddling. Forgot to mention LBJ, Tip O’Neil and Teddy Kennedy. I’ll think of more later.
Exactly. Peter Jennings and Helen Thomas may have had major faults, but they are not mass murderers. There is no comparison.
Since Jesus came He told us to love our neighbors as ourselves. I don’t think these prayers are correct for us to pray...but sometimes one can’t help being relieved when we see justice served. Death means that soul will never have another chance to make things right with their Maker. It is sad.
Can we start here? How many translations from Greek to Latin, some Aramaic thrown in, then on to German, French and English after 2 millenia. I don't disparage faith but my status as a self-identified agnostic causes me to question it.
Both of them were advocates for some VERY evil people. Helen Thomas was in particular. No retraction. What has been said has been said.
Should have included Barney Frank, Fidel Castro, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Farrakhan. Will think of more later.
She was just one of the high profile useful idiots that stalin spoke about.Hell just got even nastier, if that was possible.
Oh yes she was (she better be dead). ArrogantBustard put it correctly:
Her legacy: 49 years of lying, dissembling, carrying water for the demonicRAT party and pushing socialism, sodomy, abortion and gun-control. She was a whore for tyranny.
Believing what’s in the scriptures is obviously based on faith, although the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls have shown there have been virtually no changes since the over the past 2 thousand years.
There are sheep and there are sheepdogs. Sheepdogs hate all wolves equally.
Death to tyrants.
