IS IT TIME TO PRAY FOR BIN LADEN?
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
Apparently now we are being called upon to pray for Bin Laden and understand that Islamic radicals are not the enemy. I'm referring in part to the recent words of Brother Andrew, who wrote God's Smuggler and sold 10 million copies of that book. As a big time ministry founder he is encouraging us in certain directions according to his recent interview in Christianity Today, where he said that bin Laden and his associates are not our enemies. He even asks us all………….."Have you prayed for bin Laden today?"
So, let me get this right, my duty as a Christian and American is to spend my time praying for a guy committed to SATAN and killing our people. Gee, I wonder if Andrew has spent the same energy praying for our troops that they might have victory?
The peace messiahs of the world just kill me! So much concern about the feelings and souls of serial killers. Little talk or thought about the innocent victims and troops in harms way. I'm reminded of the words months ago by Rosie when she reminded the world that terrorists are not to fear, they are just mommies and daddies. She represents much of the compromised and kiss up media, but now there is the Bible bashing from the peace movement and certain Christian leaders. That is all we need when we are fighting a world war with REAL thugs and killers.
This is SO not about Democrat or Republican. Christian or non Christian, atheist, confused or indifferent, this is about Americans getting clear about the enemy and Christians in this country getting a CLUE and praying right!!!
In world war 11 the prayers of most pastors then had nothing to do with most pastors now. Now we hear the endless prayers for peace, manipulative words about praying for our enemies, prayers regarding our own sin or hypocritical spirits, but rarely about what we should really be praying for and what MOST PASTORS PRAYED FOR IN WW-II…….not peace, not for the enemy but for one thing……….VICTORY!!!
I know as an extremely imperfect but sincerely Christian radio talk show host, that as much as I want to spread love and peace, that if I had met Hitler, knowing anything then about what he was planning to do, I WOULD HAVE GLEEFULLY PLANNED TO KILL HIM. I would have risked my life, fortune and career to get near him and stop the murderer!! To me, in my thinking, stopping him and stopping Islamic radicals like bin Laden now IS THE PATH OF PEACE!
Remember those of you who are sitting on your peaceful, religious high horse, that Jesus didn't take hugs and kisses into the temple, but a whip. Jesus didn't conquer sin and death with loving talk and negotiation. He was tortured, beaten and crucified. Revelations doesn't talk about Armageddon as a cake eating contest but as a battle with blood spilled up to the necks of people. Taking on evil can be messy. Sorry.
We must pray and be humble as people in need of God and His love,
BUT, remember we are facing an evil foe that will kill and has killed
for decades now. It is time we pray, not for bin Laden, but that our
troops find him and eradicate him. It is time we pray for victory
over the tyrannical and imperialistic push of Islamic radicals who
want to control the world!
