My Disappointment

written by Wendy Justis

I made a choice to follow Christ and be a seeking child of God many years ago. In this time I have seen good and bad in my life as well as in the world. One of the most disappointing times I have witnessed in America was May 1-2, 2011. The reason I say this is because I have watched, read, and heard fellow “Christians” not only rejoice but party at the loss of a life and celebrate the eternal separation of one of God’s creations from him.

Please before the hateful remarks start to fly, I agree the Osama Bin Laden was and for ever will be a great evil that walked this Earth and that there is justice in his death. But we as Christians must remember that even the GREATEST evil was once a master piece of God, woven together in his mother’s womb. (Psalms 139:13) He just like the rest of us were given the gift of free will and chose to not follow the path of Christ. Jesus was our perfect example of understanding this type of evil. Even in the moments of his beating and then death he had pity and mercy for the evil that was before him. He knew his father would morn the loss of his creations that have turned from him and betrayed him.

I do believe in just punishments, the death penalty, and that we reap what we sow. I am thankful, grateful, and for ever in debt to the men and women who daily put their lives on the line for our freedom. My sadness and dismay comes from the pure elation and joy that I have watched those who profess Jesus as their lord and personal savior display in the eternal separation that this soul will have from our father. I for one will never nor can I ever forget September 11, but I am not going to rejoice in the loss of this life. I know as a parent no matter what my child may do (good or evil) I will morn their loss regardless of how justified it might be. I can only imagine how our father is feeling.

Please for those that profess to be followers of God, to desire to walk in the path of Jesus, take a step back and re-evaluate your celebration of this death. Also understand that your ugliness is only making us as a Country no better then those who have targeted us. You are also helping to make us an even bigger target than we already are.

Again thank you to all of our armed forces for your courage and all you do. Thank you Jesus for being the guiding light that we should all aspire to be.

Thank you for those taking the moment to read this and this is my opinion and I am not speaking for anyone else. I will close with stating that yes I feel his death was, is, and forever will be justified, but I will not take pleasure in it nor will I celebrate it. I will however continue to strive to love my neighbors and honor those in my life.

In HIS love,

Wendy
