Arranging a "Most Wanted" Meeting

My wife was recently at Homestead Air Reserve Base, FL and saw this sign posted up in the Security Forces building:

"It's God's responsibility to forgive Bin Laden,
It's our responsibility to arrange the meeting."

I thought it was a good indication that our soldiers believe in their mission.

Here is the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list posting for Osama.

I'd gladly kill him. I wouldn't charge him or the government anything at all.

If you're an American who believes this country is, indeed, "under God", then I bring to your attention the responsibility any one of us has as a believer in God, and when I say believer, I mean one who has a personal relationship to God thru Christ.

It is *not* God's "responsibility" to forgive. In fact, if God were not to have provided salvation to us through Christ, our ultimate doom would be everlasting separation from Him, also known as Hell.

The New Testament shows Jesus consistently telling those around Him that we are to forgive others, so that God may also forgive us. We are to be "Christ-like" in our walk on this earth. That means, in some circumstances, forgiving others before (and doubtful if) they ask for it, or do anything that might motivate us to it without hesitation.

Sure - go and kill. Go forth and destroy, conquer, and demolish. I don't see any context, any quotes, any examples of the Jesus I know in the Bible portraying any of those qualities. In fact, the one moment of rage that comes to my mind is when a temple was being used as a place of business.

Here's just *one* link about forgiveness:

I post anon because I don't have a blogger account.

Well, Anon... I don't believe in God. Although I am Armenian, I am not a Christian. I’m an Atheist Buddhist type and I will not forgive OBL or any of the other terrorists that are CURRENTLY TRYING TO KILL US.

Oh... by the way. I'll do the killing, and you can do the forgiving. How about that. And after I kill the bad guys who want to kill you, you can forgive me for it.

Thanks in advance for you forgiveness.

Ahh..the Partamian Report has ventured into the world of Christianity and Bible verses. I never thought I would ever see this(especially on a blog run by an Atheist Buddhist). I guess I would say that first of all, I appreciate any and all comments, even if they do link to biblegateway.com, so thanks Anon. From there, I would even say that you are right about one thing, it is not God's "responsibility" to forgive. After that though, I hear what you are saying, but how does that give guidance on what our country should do about Osama? I don't think that you are saying that by being "Christ-like" that you mean we should all be murdered by our adversaries do you? If so, I don't think I would be a very good Christian.

Is it ok then to kill Osama and forgive him? I have no problem forgiving him as long as he gets justice and can't hurt anyone else.
