And just how does John Q. Public in the United States see things? The Pew Research Center’s post entitled “Public “Relieved” By bin Laden’s Death, Obama’s Job Approval Rises is worth noting.

It’s time we pray.

Heavenly Father, shape our conscience by your word into the likeness of your will. May we be ever open to your work at such and may we be active, not passive, in the process. Amen.

  1. You are so right about how we, as Christians, should respond to the death of an enemy. Simply put, it seems to me, we should respond as Jesus did. He always treated saints and sinners the same…He loves all and wants all to come to Him.

  2. Amen, sister! If we truly believe the Spirit’s words “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,” then the only difference between any of us and Osama is a difference not of kind, but only degree. “There is none righteous, no not one.” How we respond then to the death of Osama bin Laden is a strong statement of what we really believe about God, ourselves, and all others. Matt. 6:12 and Matt. 7:12 leap to my mind.
