Osama, Hitler, and Every Unrepentant Sinner

People equate Osama to Hitler I think that Osama did not come close but at the same time I agree. Osama, Hitler, and every "good hearted" unrepentant American are all equally evil and deserving of Hell. People keep calling him an enemy of God and that there is nothing wrong with celebrating the death of God's enemy. I just have to say, "As long as they do not mind me celebrating the death of their unrepentant most loved ones." I do not like what happened in 9/11 and am not defending Osama, but I also do not like people creating a god that loves all the Americans and hates America's enemies and calling it christianity!

The Truth:

All men and women were or are God's enemies; the truth is that the unrepentant sinner hates
God!  You are just as evil as Osama Bin Laden, Adolf Hitler, and Benjamin Franklin (doubted Jesus' divinity and was a thorough Deist).  A good person is a myth, there are none good and to think that there are is to contradict the Word of God!  Do not lie to yourself; do not create for yourself a false god that “so loves the word that he gave his only begotten son that all men are saved in his name!”  The true God “so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.  For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.  He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 

This truth that every unrepentant sinner is a hater of God and is heading straight for Hell is both a warning for the lost and the found alike.  For the lost we have the Gospel and for the found evangelism.

 I feel that it is necessary to mention why we need to be saved, and what we need to be saved from. In the beginning was God’s perfect creation and His perfect man and woman. Through Adam came the curse and spiritual death. When sin entered the world God had to separate Himself from us because of His absolute hatred of sin and sinners (Ps 5:5 Ps 11:5). God is more than just love, He is just, holy, and many more things, His holiness is the birthplace of His hatred towards sin and his justice is birthed from His holiness. Both His holiness and justice are born from His love, His love towards His creation causes Him to hate sinners who are completely defiled and hurt his creation (specifically our fellow human beings). From God’s hatred towards sinners comes His separation from us, and from His justice comes our future and deserving punishment, everlasting torment. However there is hope, as a propitiation (that is a substitution) for the punishment we rightfully deserve Christ died on the cross, becoming a curse and taking our sins upon Himself. God so loved what He had created that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ that we may be saved! His wrath was heaped upon the head of Jesus in order that wretches like you and me can, by grace through faith participate in our salvation become spiritually alive and rejoined to God both now and in paradise! A good buddy of mine (Okay I have never met or talked to the guy) Matt Slick said, “It is better to accept the love of God found in Jesus that to reject it and suffer.”

Your best life now: daily taking up your cross and following Jesus.
