So, do we pity him or apply new tactics to thwart future acts of malice and murder.
If the punishment is horrific and inhumane, trust me, these acts will basically stop.
We will find out that this “animal” was bullied (wah) his Mommy and Daddy were mean to him or didn’t understand him (wah) Another boy beat him up or got his place on the team just because he was black, or maybe stole his girlfriend. (Wah) “Life is so unfair, I think I’ll go to church and kill some niggers…”
What do you think the punishment should be?
Does the love of Jesus apply to this POS?
Should he be sent to a Doctor and “evaluated”?
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
Where was Jesus?
Where was God?
“Yes, sometimes bad things happen to people who seem undeserving of them. But God allows things to happen for His reasons, whether or not we understand them. Above all, however, we must remember that God is good, just, loving, and merciful. Often things happen to us that we simply cannot understand. However, instead of doubting God’s goodness, our reaction should be to trust Him. ”Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
What a crock….
Do you know what God did?
This…boy….this rabid dog, made a conscious decision to sit amongst fellow humans, for an hour they say, during a bible study inside of a church and then…..kill them!
A white boy in a black church, and the members of the little group didn’t cast him out or turn him away.
He was the actual, real life, free will capable, proverbial wolf in sheeps clothing.
He killed them in a church……
God gave us free will.
God does not influence the world by interceding in mans existence or mans actions.
If he did, it would negate the very fact that we have free will.
He lets us choose…
He lets us hang ourselves…..or burn.
Satan, for those of you that believe he exists, has the easiest job in the world.
He dosen’t have to do a damn thing but watch that the fire doesn’t go out.
“The trials of man are of two kinds:
(1) The consequences of his own actions. If a man eats too much, he ruins his digestion; if he takes poison he becomes ill or dies. If a person gambles he will lose his money; if he drinks too much he will lose his equilibrium. All these sufferings are caused by the man himself, it is quite clear therefore that certain sorrows are the result of our own deeds.
(2) Other sufferings there are, which come upon the Faithful of God.” (Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 49-50)
Do we forgive him?
Can we forgive the action?
Do we condemn society as a whole for unwittingly and unknowingly contributing to the creation of a monster?
Do we shut down the video game industry, do we burn Hollywood, do we punish the pretty people that makes us jealous and want to hurt people.
It. Is. Free. Will.
Do we curse God because of an act of free will?
Do we judge the man to kill the man?
How do we understand what we can’t possibly understand?
Well, pray if it makes you feel better.
Ask the dead what they think we should do.
I will pray….
Oh…..it’s all our fault, by the way.
“And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.”
