Just Reward

Roy,

Watching the after seconds of that bombing on T.V. and seeing those who ran to instead of away from shows that the human spirit is still alive and well in these United States. Watching the strength and persistence and bravery of those who were involved in the capture demonstrates what happens when you make us mad.   

As Christians we are taught to forgive. Turn the other cheek. Be kind. Love all. Ask and Jesus Christ will forgive us of our sins. This Boston Bomber is still alive and probably still full of hatred. My belief is he will pay for his "sins." This kid is thinking based on his beliefs.......he didn't sin. As Christians we are to forgive the kid and believe that God will sort him out later. Kind'a puts one in a awkward position at times especially when you want to get your hands around his throat and snap his neck for blowing up that little boy and the rest of those folks. 

Thinking forward.........When his muslim extremist brothers who are also in this country decide to strike again and it's me that gets blown out of my seat at Neyland Stadium, randomly shoot in a crowd or get my head chopped off for being a Christian that my friends, who are also my fellow Americans, bring the full force of the American resolve to the front and respond in a style that has since be named "Boston Strong."  And when the medical examiner proclaims that he can't tell which one of the 421 bullet wounds actually caused the death of the extremist...........I will rest in peace. Forgive me Father but is that a sin? I will forgive him later for blowing me out of existence.
