Concerned.

I am concerned.
The news has been about the Royal Wedding all weekend until now. It's main concern is the "death" of Osama bin Laden.
{{Apparently disasters via tornadoes and wild fires in our own country aren't "newsworthy" enough. }}

But, this new bit of news concerns me. Who will succeed as the new leader and what is in store for retaliation?

I've heard all the secular jokes about OBL being killed on the anniversary of Voldemort's death (Harry Potter reference.), the fact that our President doesn't need to run for re-election because there is a better job opening now, and the crude "rot in hades" references.


Matthew 5:43-48 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)


Love Your Enemies
 43 "You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. For He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.46 For if you love those who love you, what reward will you have? Don't even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing out of the ordinary? Don't even the Gentiles do the same? 48 Be perfect,  therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.



BUT


What about rotting in Hell and condemnation do we as sinners NOT understand. A sin is a sin is a sin to God. OBL has a soul, a spirit, was created by God and cherished by HIM. I don't know the outcome of where OBL ended up for eternity but I do KNOW that he did indeed BOW TO JESUS upon meeting HIM.
