When President Obama announced that Osama had been killed, some people were confused. One young chap came back from school and told his aunt that Obama died. His aunt was shocked and asked who told him. He replied his teacher watched CNN and told him that. One Chinese newspaper had written the same mistake. Obama was killed!
There were some celebrations in the US when Osama died. Some people condemned those who celebrate as it was not appropriate as a human being died. Some people who lost their loved ones in Osama's terror activities felt justice had been served. And not surprisingly, some people mourned for Osama and condemned Obama for ordering to kill him.
Your perspective in life will determine how you react. Some feel that Osama did the right thing because he stood out to USA and Israel in bulllying Muslims people. In case you didn't know that the late terror kingpin killed more Muslims than any other groups of religious people. Is violence a right thing to do to right a wrong? Does doing another wrong justify the wrong being done? In fact, everyone would argue that he is right and others are wrong. No one knows what right or wrong anymore. We are super confused.
What a Christian should do here?
1. We do not celebrate when someone died as Osama is also a soul who is lost without Christ. When I think of Osama, I remember the terror-laden Saul in the New Testament. Thank God he repented and turned the Christ and became the greatest evangelist Paul.
(Prov 24:17-18) Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice, or the LORD will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from him.
2. We learn that justice will come when we do wrong. Either from men or from God. Osama or Obama, everyone has to come before the great judge, God Himself.
3. We cannot do wrong to right a wrong. Instead, revenge belongs to God. We are forgiven by God so gracefully and we should also forgiving those who sinned against us. It's hard but it's necessary! It's easy to say but hard to do but it's Christlike thing to do.
4. Let us turn to God and pray for everyone that God's will be done, in heaven and on earth!
