Ding, Dong?

Bin Laden is dead–and we have killed him.

The news is very fresh, and the world is still reäcting to the initial shock. Some are happy, others are angry. As a native of North Jersey who saw the WTC towers the morning they went down and knew people who lost loved ones on September 11, I remember that day well–and some memories have come rushing back.

This excellent sermon came to mind when I heard the news.

How does God feel about Osama bin Laden’s death?

As I live, declares the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel? (Ezekiel 33:11)
