Why would "God" want you to celebrate a death?

Does god love all people, or not? Does god forgive even murderers, or not?
Despite the actions of someone....why would god wish for their death?
This ideas seems such a human ideal...a human emotional reaction to them being wronged by another.
Does god seek revenge, and if so, does he use his children as his weapons to fulfill that revenge?(as in our soldiers being used as tools of death for Bin Laden)

  • I just wrote about this on FB. My friend wrote that God wanted Osama dead so he made it happen. What the hell is that about? I guess all those scriptures about eye for an eye tooth for a tooth and forgive not up to 7 times but 77 times are all bologna?! Come on!

  • BEcause justice has been served. Osama never asked for forgiveness, never apologized for killing all these people so he deserved to have a bullet in his f-ing head. May he burn in hell. If God didn't want BAD PEOPLE to GO TO HELL, he wouldn't leave that door open for them.

  • Sorry but celebrating a death is just wrong no matter who it was. No, unfortunately USA used the soldiers to get revenge, God had nothing to do with it.

  • Doesn't matter if he asked for forgiveness or not! If you believe in the bible and practice its teachings this is what you are told to do. And rejoicing and partying because someone is dead is IMO wrong. No matter who they are.

  • God controls life and death, so he wishes nothing. You sin against God, you will face his wrath, so I guess if you want to call it "revenge" you can. He has every right to do so, HE is God and the creator. God can use anything he wants to do any of his work that he wants done, and people are often what he uses, but he also gives satan certain freedoms to do certain things, within the guidelines that he sets.

    NO it's not. People do it all the time in different cultures. Dead is part of life. SOme people deserve to live and others deserve to die. If God didn't want Osama to die, he would never have given those men(THe Navy SEALS) the courage to do so.

  • " praise the lord! "

    How odd to see this in response to the killing of someone. I'm so confused about this god who wants you to celebrate taking revenge. (I am not saying we shouldn't have gone after him, I am just saddened at the celebratory manner people are viewing his killing. It's the same as when the towers went down and Afghans were celebrating.)
