Posted on 09/06/2004 7:12:32 AM PDT by gopwinsin04
The slaughter at Beslan was so horrific it was enough to test the faith of the most committed of Christians, Archbishop Rowan Williams said at the weeks end.
Williams has admitted that the slaughter had led him to momentarily question his faith in God.
He said it would be inhuman not to question one's beliefs in the light of such evil.
Dr. Williams said that the terrorists had perpetrated the most evil kind of action imaginable and insisted that the murdered children had not been abandoned by God.
The Archbisop quoted the Bible in which Jesus said it would be better for people who committed such offences against children to have millstones around their necks and to be cast out into the sea.
'He is in the middle of all the suffering and He is weeping for all creation and all those involved. All we can do is pray for the sorrowful and the dead.'

They're not making Archbishops like they used to.
It's the new PC church..although I think his sentiment is genuine
Dr. Williams, how are these acts different from terrorists hurling grenades at preschoolers that terrorists ceases in Northern Israel in 1974? or blew up many times on the way to school over the course of the last few years? or Algerian terrorists cutting throats of 150 Muslim pupils at night 10-12 years ago?
I am just curious: what is it particularly different here Mr. Williams?
God was/is there. The question might be: Where is the Archbishop of Canterbury on the war on terror?
What the Archbishop might point out is these barbarians conduct such savagery in the NAME OF THEIR GOD! The slaughter of infidel children is a righteous act in the Koran because the age of the unbelievers is irrelevant.
This subhuman barbarism is done in the name of a false, wicked god by the name of Allah, an alias of Satan. Allah is not the God of Abraham. He is a serpent.. an imposter.
"He said it would be inhuman not to question one's beliefs in the light of such evil."
Rubbish. Those are not the words of a man who has a personal relationship with the Lord.
Worse things than this have happened in history, and it would be supremely arrogant to think that God somehow would stop someone in this age from being as evil as other have been in the past.
Where are the kids now?
You can't even imagine- it's that good.
Where are the terrorsts now?
You can't even imagine- it's that bad.
God is still in control.
Amen to that.
Williams is still considered a Christian?
And it will get worse. Satan knows his days are numbered. He is throwing everything he has to take as many souls to hell with him as he can. Those children were called home and God will comfort them for eternity.
My prayer is Jesus returns soon.
God was in the same place as when the Nazis slaughtered the Jews.
God does not simply allow evil, he allows good men to do nothing.
What was God supposed to do when France and Britian negotiated the partition of Czechoslovakia? Was he supposed to say, well, that's o.k., because I love the innocent I will not allow this blunder to result in such harm as the we know befell not only the Jews but the whole world, following the attempt to appease Hitler?
And, today, with the appeasement of Islamic fanatics that continued for decades, is God supposed to say, well, that's o.k., because I love the innocent I will not allow this blunder to result in such harm as we see about us?
God truly loves the innocent, and they are with him today and always, and we who miss them can be assured of being reunited with them forever, just we can also be sure that those who perpetrated these evils will be condemned to the fires of hell for always.
But, our bleeding heart liberal friends have got to realize that God has given us government not for national health insurance, but to be a terror to evil. Protecting us should be Job #1 for the governments of all the countries of the world.
Anyone who says that the war on terror takes money away from "programs" must think, like this Archbishop, that God is weak or uncaring, when, the truth is, they are simply fools.
You can say that again!
And as for the millstones - he used that out of context. But we get the idea.
God was not there --- but ALLA was!!!! That is the real truth.
No, Rowan, there is much more that we can do:
We can also pray that Muslims the world over will understand what Islam means and just who the "god" is that they are serving, and, just in case reality escapes them, we can tell them.
We can face reality ourselves and identify exactly what the evil is that is responsible and attack it at its black heart.
We can inform the people of the world about these monsters and the dangers that they threaten.
We can take action to prevent them from repeating such evil acts in the future.
We can take actions to protect ourselves and our children from such monsters.
We can confront them and their evil with force and power and thus put and end to their evil acts.
And,of paramount importance, we can vote for the re-election of President Bush, who is our best defense against these monsters and their evil ambitions.
To pray for deliverance is one thing, but we must also face reality and take meaningful action.
This is our choice: confrontation or capitulation.
Capitulation is handing over our children and ourselves to these evil monsters.
Appeasement is capitulation.
Confrontation is stopping these monsters, using whatever weapons it takes including force, and eradicating them and their evil.
Confrontation is the only course of action that we can reasonably and honorably take.
History is repeating itself. The people of the world faced the same evil in the 20th century. I'm surprised that you haven't learned the lessons of history.
Holy New-Martyrs of Beslan, pray to Christ-God for the salvation of our souls!
