I have had some interesting back-and-forth with some people on Facebook regarding the death of Osama Bin Laden. The debate is whether there should be celebration of his death by any Christians, because that is not a Christian thing to do.
Choosing now to abstain from my own editorials, I would just welcome some scriptural insights from anyone who reads this.
I am going to frame the conversation just a bit, however.
1. Keep in mind, that Osama isn't just one man, but the representation of a religious sect and the trainer and supplier of many terrorists.
2. He wasn't killed by a person taking revenge, but a country defending itself against the ongoing attacks and calls to war that he released and for which he gladly took credit.
3. He was a man who mocked God, and had dedicated his life to killing all Jews and Christians. He was not going to stop.
Within that framework, is it biblical to celebrate his death, or is it ungodly?
