So What Has Changed?

I wonder if I should do a blog on the death of Osama Bin Laden,  I mean in the my thoughts are not as deep as others.  Some have gotten very theological and deep in their opinions, while others question if he is really dead or not. Should we add him to the list of Elvis, John Kennedy, and Michal Jackson….you know the list, not really dead.

As a Christian, I cannot celebrate anyone death, no matter how evil they might be. As Bin Laden was created by the same God that I serve, the Lord Jesus Christ, and has the breath of God in him, gave him life until he died.  And I know the Bible says thou shall not kill,
but we must rightly divide the Word of the Lord, as this was not a murder, but an act of war.  Just as when a police when the police kills someone justifiable, it just nature of the beast that is called war..  The Lord himself, same God who said, thou shall not kill, has order death at times in the Bible.  God commanded Saul and the Israelites, “This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.'” (1st Samuel
15:2-3)   So again, I don’t take pride in his death, but I do take pride that President Obama, did what he had to do and carried out successfully.

But my point is this, or my opinion.  It was Bin Laden yesterday, tomorrow it will be someone else, years ago it was Hitler, or Mussolini. Today the hero is Obama, years ago it was Roosevelt. So as time changes, the names will change, but one thing will never change.  No matter who is in office, no matter who the bad guy is, or the good guy, nothing can happen unless God allows it, so it doesn’t matter if you call yourself a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Liberal, Conservative, Tea Party, Moderate, or even a Terrorist…..  The fact remains THE GOVERNMENT SHALL BE UPON HIS SHOULDER.  So in the end, nothing has really changed.  God is still in control.
