Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

Osama bin Laden's Death

Osama bin Laden died hiding out in the apparent lap of Pakistani luxury.  The bin Laden family apparently had the top two floors of 3 total for himself, one of his wives, an adult son and two trusted couriers and their families. 

The compound that our brave Navy Seals, as we hear, hard-landed one copter into while Seals rappeled down from the second copter into also housed some Pakistani Intelligence Service folks and others. This makes it very hard to believe that the Pakistani government had no knowledge of what this million dollar, five year old compound was all about with it's 12 high cement walls with concertina barb wire stretched across the top of those.

Our military folks have accomplished the mission we have asked of them in an outstanding fashion.  This once active duty Marine ('64-73) is so proud of all I said, particularly the military.  I am also grateful to the intelligence resources utilized in tracking this courier to a particular place which just so happened to be that compound and just so happened to house a high Al-Qaeda operative...the highest! 

Give credit where credit is do....I am also proud of President Obama for having the guts to see this through and once the opportunity arose, to pull the trigger....damn, we may make a war fighter out of him yet.  I do believe it is kind of ironic that much of this intelligence has been fomenting for a long time and that quite possibly, indeed, probably, those nasty water-boarding techniques were used to garner this info. How approproiate! 

Good job to the former President Bush and all others who understand that there are worse things in life than a squirtgun up the having someone fly jet airliners into our skyscrapers.

As a born again Christian, and that since my Vietnam years, I do not take pleasure in the taking of human life.  As a Marine I know that while no one likes to fight, someone has to know how.  I know our Marines know how and I know our Navy Seals know well as all special ops folks.  I do believe even truly, died in the wool peace-niks can celebrate in subdued fashion on this occasion....the execution of a mass murderer who self-admittedly had much blood on his hands...up to and including the attacks on 9/11/2001.  And then far beyond New York....

This could absolutely be viewed as just recompense, by man, for the blood of men spilled at Usama bin Laden's hands.  My guidebook, these days, tells me that "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God, made he man".  Genesis 9:6  is also the scriptural and moral basis for capital punishment...and all I would ask is be sure of your evidence.

Osama bin Laden declared war on America a long, long time ago....we just didn't really acknowledge that until his mostly Saudi-Arabian minions flew our planes into our buildings, the Pentagon and thanks to the heros on board, Flight 93, into the ground of Pennsylvania rather than the White House or Capitol Building.

God has, throughout history, used nations as the point of His spear.  He does intervene in the ways of men and if we truly understood that;  we would not be so quick to dismiss Him in our public discourse.  I, celebrate with America today, and again congratulate all involved in the planning, and the execution of this raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

I even have to appreciate the thinking that went into dumping bin Laden's body into that giant aquarium known as the North Arabian Sea...and from the deck of a U.S. Naval War Ship that bin Laden liked to attack.

I regret that I could not have been on the scene with those warfighters and to witness this with my very own eyes.  I want to see all, videos....and please spare the gruesome bs.  More than that I want the crazy, Islamic fanatics to see the end of the be known from this day forward as....Fishfood!  Maybe he will end up with 72 vestal mermaids....
