for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,

How should Christians react
to the death of evil people?

Christians are often left wondering how they ought to feel when an especially evil person dies. For instance, at the death of Kim Jong Il, Osama bin Laden, or even in history at the death of Hitler, are we to rejoice/celebrate? Interestingly, the authors of the Bible seem to have struggled with this issue as well, with different perspectives being presented in different passages.

First, there is Ezekiel 18:23, “’As surely as I live,’ declares the Lord God, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live.’” Clearly, God does not take pleasure in the death of evil people.

Why is this? Why wouldn’t a holy and righteous God take pleasure in evil people receiving the punishment they deserve? Ultimately, the answer would have to be that God knows the eternal destiny of evil people. God knows how horrible eternity in the lake of fire will be.

Similar to Ezekiel 18:23, 2 Peter 3:9 states that God is “not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” So, in terms of the eternal destiny of evil people, no, we should not rejoice at their eternal demise. Hell is so absolutely horrible that we should never rejoice when someone goes there.

Second, there is Proverbs 11:10, “When the righteous prosper, the city rejoices; when the wicked perish, there are shouts of joy.” This seems to be speaking of the death of evil people in an earthly/temporal sense.

When there are fewer evil people in the world, the world is a better place. We can rejoice when justice is done, when evil is defeated. A mass murderer being removed from the world is a good thing.

God has ordained governments (and the military) as instruments of judgment against evil. When evil people are killed [referring to lawbreakers, specifically], whether in the judicial system via the death penalty, or whether through military means, it is God’s justice being accomplished (Romans 13:1-7). For justice being done, and for evil people being removed from this world, yes, we can rejoice.

There are many other scriptures that could be discussed:

Deuteronomy 32:43 – “Rejoice with him, O heavens; bow down to him, all gods, for he avenges the blood of his children and takes vengeance on his adversaries. He repays those who hate him and cleanses his people’s land.”

Job 31:29 – If I have rejoiced at the ruin of him who hated me, or exulted when evil overtook him . . .

Psalm 58:10 – The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance; he will bathe his feet in the blood of the wicked.

Proverbs 17:5, 24:17-18 – Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker; he who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.

Jeremiah 11:20 – But, O Lord of hosts, who judges righteously, who tests the heart and the mind, let me see your vengeance upon them, for to you have I committed my cause.

Ezekiel 33:11 – Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel?

but Ezekiel 18:23 and Proverbs 11:10 are likely sufficient to help us achieve this difficult biblical balance.

Yes, we can rejoice when evil is defeated, even if that includes the death of evil people. Ridding the world of evil people is a good thing. At the same time, we are not to rejoice at the eternal condemnation of evil people.

God does not desire that evil people spend eternity in the lake of fire, and He definitely does not rejoice when they go there. Neither should we.

As sort of a wrap-up here . . . if we claim to be Christians, we claim to be followers of Christ. So what did Christ have to say that might bear on this issue?

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.”

Love, bless and pray for . . . difficult tasks? Surely. Impossible for imperfect humans. But those are our goals and those goals should be foremost on our minds as we work through not just this particular situation, but those that we will with certainty encounter in the future.

This is our role. God has got the vengeance and justice side of this equation well in hand.

Jeremiah 9:23-24 Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”

  1. We often speak of “lost souls” — but, famously, Luke 12:6 relates that God knows every sparrow. Certainly, He also knows the physical location of every soul on earth…, what is lost?

    I would posit that the “loss” is the opportunity not taken. Sinful, evil people are capable of salvation [a word very close to “salvage”, BTW] so long as they live……but once they have removed this mortal coil and passed beyond, they are lost. When one is gazing out upon the lake of fire, preparing to be cast in, it’s too late to fish a wrinkled, faded, never-used Jesus ticket out of one’s wallet and try to cash it.

    And this really illuminates the dichotomy to which bakocarl alludes — whenever someone evil passes, we should certainly rejoice that we are freed from their malign actions — but also sorrow that their path to salvation was blocked by sin, possession, insanity, lack of capacity, ignorance, illness, mental defect, or (most sadly) circumstance and they have now passed behind the veil, with their opportunity forever lost….

    1. Text of President Ronald Reagan’s We Must Fight speech:

      “Lets set the record straight. There is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace and you can have it in the next second surrender.

      Admittedly there is a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight or surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, then eventually we have to face the final demand the ultimatum. And what then? When Nikita Khrushchev has told his people he knows what our answer will be? He has told them that we are retreating under the pressure of the Cold War, and someday when the time comes to deliver the final ultimatum, our surrender will be voluntary because by that time we will have weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. He believes this because from our side he has heard voices pleading for peace at any price or better Red than dead, or as one commentator put it, he would rather live on his knees than die on his feet. And therein lies the road to war, because those voices dont speak for the rest of us. You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didnt die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace? Well, its a simple answer after all.

      You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, There is a price we will not pay. There is a point beyond which they must not advance. Winston Churchill said that the destiny of man is not measured by material computation. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we are spirits not animals. And he said, There is something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty.

      You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

  4. Apologies if this was discussed earlier, but it’s New to Me. Senator Grassley sent out some weird tweets and Anon thinks it’s code. Someone plugged it into a Gematria calculator, and the date September 29th came up along with a bunch of other spooky stuff. “Returning Power to the People,” “The Storm is Upon Us” came up as well as “Yellowstone Volcano Eruption.” I’ve said for years that “Yellowstone” is cabal code.

            1. There are so many possibilities for doing gematria when there are this many numbers involved, that you could probably find literally anything you wanted to find.

              Sort of like trying to brute force a one time pad. Do you stop when you find a key that translates a seven letter message to “GEORGIA” or do you continue on till you find a key that translates to “FLORIDA”? With a one time pad there are as many keys as there are possible texts, which is why you cannot “break” a one time pad, without somehow managing to get a copy of the pad. (Protocols for key distribution are as much and as important a part of cryptography as the algorithms themselves.)

    Just unbelievable that they could take the good news of many thousands using a safe, FDA approved drug for an off-label us in South America and turn it into some terrible, unknown dangerous policy!

    And how scary was this drug? “Doctors reported that some who received the mass injections developed racing heartbeats and anxiety; others got infections at the injection site.” Wow. Guess we’d just better suffer lung damage or death. Right?

    Some doctors think they’ve found a cheap, generic drug which treats COVID-19. So why hasn’t anyone heard of it?

    3. You could say that the good news of this story has been “McChrystalized”.

      Remember what Retired General Stanley A. McChrystal has been about since retirement. Part of his fight disinfo campaign involves paying journalists to attack pro trump and anti cabal narratives after he’s used military grade software to analyze the good arguments that are successful in order to put up counter, arguments part of which includes inserting confusing or disingenuous information to combat the good news facts.

      This type of information combat will normally appear as stories that attempt to persuade or leave doubt in the readers mind and it will take both knowledge of the subject and critical reading skills not fall victim to it as demonstrated for your not falling to the McChrystalization, which is nothing more than high tech yellow journalism IMHO.

As a nice example, a couple of months ago a guy showed up to demonstrate an engine with a square piston (he used seals from a Mazda rotary on each face). It ran.

    You never look at a distributor quite the same way after seeing some that were built from scratch. And a 1/4 version of a Ford Flathead is a thing of beauty.

  8. Why is this? Why wouldn’t a holy and righteous God take pleasure in evil people receiving the punishment they deserve? Ultimately, the answer would have to be that God knows the eternal destiny of evil people. God knows how horrible eternity in the lake of fire will be.

    My answer, as I understand the Lord (ie. my limited understanding of God), is it is because all living things are created and given life by God. What great artist would take pleasure in the destruction of his work? What righteous and loving father would take pleasure in the death of his child, even though the child was wicked? I don’t think it’s because God knows the eternal destiny of evil people. Rather, I believe it is because of his perfect love, because he knows each of his children before they are even formed in the womb, and he has no desire to see any of his children die.

    In short, he is a perfect father. He is love itself. And there is nothing he created that was not created in perfect love, with the greatest care. And none would perish, regardless of their wickedness, save for two things.

    First, the necessary free will he gave to his children. No loving father would hold his children in bondage, for they would not be his children but rather his slaves. Because of this, we… his….children had to be given our free will. But it is through this free will that his children are able to sin, and ultimately it is their choice to sin or not. not one of his children have proven able to choose not to sin, save for one. And that one is Jesus Christ.

    Second, God’s righteousness. The Lord is able to extend forgiveness to his children that have sinned thanks to the perfect sacrifice made by the sinless Jesus Christ, who took the sins of all mankind upon himself in order to satisfy the debts owed to the righteousness of God. That said, God will not be mocked, nor will his righteousness allow his perfect sacrifice for the benefit of all his children to be mocked. In return for this great sacrifice, God’s righteousness demands the acknowledgment of his son Jesus Christ, who he is, and the debt all owe to him. That debt is repentance…the acknowledgment of A) who Jesus Christ is, and B) what he did for each one of us, and C) the need of asking of forgiveness of the debt each one of us owes to the Father, his son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

    It is a just a reasonable requirement given all that has been done, and is yet still promised to us in the future.

    No, God cannot not take pleasure in the death of any of his children, those who he made with his very own hands….out of love, because of love, and for love’s sake.

Don’t listen to the fear porn of how many days to confirm historically, the Judiciary committee having hearings, that the nominee’s spouses will Kavanaughed or Borked.

        The President has said a woman to be nominated, the potential nominees are Federal District judges that have already been vetted and voted in by the Senate.

        No need for Judiciary Senate Committee to have hearings. All this has been done and the Senate voted. Just a Senate floor vote to confirm.

        No wonder the Dems are screaming and tantruming and making meaningless threats, everything has been done, so all left to do is the Senate floor vote. Lindsey Graham will not schedule circus hearings and have quick vote to stop the Dems from finding/fabricating lies about the nominee.

      1. There were several short videos of her making appearances here and there – however – how would we know these were current or old resurrected videos?

        Every once in a while – they would run an article about her – after she was taken to the hospital – for whatever ailed her – every so often – they went out of their way to let us know she was ok.

        So who knows, Mom? Then, there was the Fox Announcement in 2019 – for which they had to apologize.

    1. “sadly I don’t think I’m far off base here…abortion is their only rallying cry left…”

      Sticking my neck out…

      Another rallying point for the left would be if there was a physical attack on one or more major Democrat political figures that resulted in their injury or death, and blamed on a ‘right-wing’ group. FBI Director Wray’s recent statement regarding the threat of “right-wing militias” has me wondering if he was setting the stage for some future ‘event’.

      People who already have major health issues (such as a terminal illness), or an older person whose life is in the crapper, would likely be the ones to be set up as victims. A false flag, in other words.

        1. It’s just a theory at this point.

          I bring it up as that scenario has the potential to cause a large swing in who people vote for, or in causing them to sit out the Nov. 3rd election.

          If done in late October, getting to the truth of the matter may not happen until after the election. You can count on Fake News doing their part to push to the max the narrative.

    2. I think that has ben their rallying cry for a long time – why they fought so hard to keep Kavanaugh off of the court – why they smeared him to death – they want liberal judges to continue their assault on America.

      I also believe the Pro-Life Groups are getting stronger – and of course – they fear the repeal of Roe V Wade

      I can also see Woot’s point – because the radical left has gotten so much bad press – this might be in the planning stages – after all – we do have some radical right-wingers looking for a fight and/or confrontation.

      But, I do agree – abortion is their battle cry – they need sacrifices to their god – this is nothing new – it has been happening for ages in civilizations around the world.

      I hope and pray I live to see the day when Roe V Wade is repealed!

    Candace Owens’ new book being damaged before being sent by Amazon
    …………From the article:

    A couple of damaged books would likely been accidents. A dozen or so may have been coincidence or may have been intentional. With around 1000 reports of damaged copies of Candace Owens’ new book, Blackout, being sent out by Amazon, this is very clearly a targeted attack on the conservative’s merchandise as well as those who order them.
    According to Owens, she’s receiving tons of reports about damages to her books before they’re shipped that include getting stepped on and even having Vaseline or similar substance smeared on them.

    “The pettiness will do nothing to thwart sales. Let’s try to get the next 100,000 that I plan to sell out of your warehouse, treated with a bit more respect by the looney lefties packing the product, please,” Owens tweeted.

  17. how ironic! NPR doesn’t believe voter fraud exists–then 4 people are found to have voted using NPR as their address…
    As regular listeners of National Public Radio know, the taxpayer-funded outlet regularly disparages the idea that any type of fraud occurs in our elections. Now, research by the Public Interest Legal Foundation has turned up information pointing to possible election fraud by NPR employees.

    Many types of election fraud occur. The type found in the NPR case, instances of which appear in The Heritage Foundation’s Election Fraud Database, concerns individuals who violate eligibility rules by registering and voting where they don’t actually live.

    The Public Interest Legal Foundation found four individuals who claimed NPR West headquarters in Culver City, California, as their residence and voted in 2018 via mail-in absentee ballots. More on that startling discovery in a bit.

    Hollywood Actress Comes Out In Support of Trump: “Fallacy that he’s an evil racist, bigot is f–king bulls–t”


    ……………From the article:

    “The O.C.” actress Samaire Armstrong just came out with some very strong support for President Trump and his vision for the future.

    She posted a video on Wednesday promising to support Donald Trump for the 2020 presidential election and took a few shots at the “far-left mob” for trying to silence conservatives.

    “I’m voting #Trump2020, and this is why This is MY opinion. I am sharing it with you at the cost of everything, because it is my right. It is your right to refute it,” she started. […]

    “I encourage you to have factual data to support what your point is.

    There are so many in our great country who have been bullied into silence at the doing of a far left mob.

    Let’s shift back to reality and facts.

    Let’s stop placating to the emotionally undeveloped, who have an inability to process the meaning of personal responsibility, as if they are the cultural guide of which we should follow.[…]

    I ask you to consider, why I would be coming out saying these things.[…]

    If nothing else, I hope this encourages you to speak YOUR opinion, no matter how unpopular it may be.

    Freedom of speech must be restored. Logic must be restored.

    Critical thinking must be restored.”

That gas main had not been maintained since 1956… Apparently this insulator hook had not been EVER touched since it was first installed almost 100 years ago!!!!!

            This culture of “install it and forget it” has to stop, be it utilities, roads, bridges, buildings, or what-have-you. Investment in maintenance and (gasp!) documentation should be REQUIRED as part of code sign off when the item in question is brought into service. And yes, I know, it doesn’t happen in the real world (especially in the computing world… “the code is obvious” – but but but you wrote it all on one line……. )…

        It seems now that the Left won’t debate or argue . Once the sides are known it becomes the justification of a rant, a punch, a shove, a spit, etc. They’ve been conditioned to bypass discussion and go straight to intimidation or violence.

        1. The left is incapable of debate…. One reason is an inability to express in coherent terms their reasoning…speech classes and debate definitely not taught in schools today. I doubt most can even write a complete sentence.
          Second, of course, is an extremely Limited vocabulary…favorite word is F*CK, which has taken the place of the top of the charts popular “you know”. It’s the new , used in every sentence, obligatory word (notice it’s both adjective, noun and verb!) and has the added advantage of being companied by the subtle finger salute…something “you know” sadly lacked.
          The frustration of the inability to express themselves in an intelligent manner is manifested by the need to express themselves in vulgar displays and then , of course, violence. The irony is how they cover themselves up to hide their identity in “expressing” their passionate beliefs.

      3. It depends upon what you’re disagreeing about. Anymore, the other side stands for and promotes all manner of debasement and evil. I am to the point that I simply don’t want people around me who can’t think straight and see things the way they are. Family, friends, acquaintances. Anyone. A person is defined by what he/she believes concerning life’s absolutes. When you are at odds about the absolutes, common ground on the frivolities of life isn’t enough to sustain a bond. Things cannot get more black/white.

      Therefore you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God.

      By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.

    “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew v. 48

    Our Lord’s exhortation in these verses is to be generous in our behaviour to all men. In the spiritual life beware of walking according to natural affinities. Everyone has natural affinities; some people we like and others we do not like. We must never let those likes and dislikes rule in our Christian life. “If we walk in the light as God is in the light,” God will give us communion with people for whom we have no natural affinity.

    The Example Our Lord gives us is not that of a good man, or even of a good Christian, but of God Himself. “Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect,” show to the other man what God has shown to you; and God will give us ample opportunities in actual life to prove whether we are perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect. To be a disciple means that we deliberately identify ourselves with God’s interest in other people. “That ye love one another; as I have loved you…”

    The expression of Christian character is not good doing, but God-likeness. If the Spirit of God has transformed you within, you will exhibit Divine characteristics in your life, not good human characteristics. God’s life in us expresses itself as GOD’s life, not a human life trying to be godly. The secret of a Christian is that the supernatural is made natural in him by the grace of God, and the experience of this works out in the practical details of life, not in times of communion with God. When we come in contact with things that create a buzz, we find to our amazement that we have power to keep wonderfully poised in the centre of it all.

    Start Right Here

    FTA: “Every sign of our being taken up (Rapture) is present today. Prior to Israel becoming a nation once again on May 14, 1948, there was still much that had to be fulfilled. As it is, the next major event on the prophecy timeline is the removal of all true believers, so that the wrath can take place. Whether he knows who he is right now or not, I firmly believe the antichrist is in the wings being prepared by Satan to make his entrance.

    All – that’s everyone – who will call on the name of the Lord Jesus will be saved. This is in Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13. Romans 10:9-13 gives the mechanics and promise from the Father about receiving the gift of Salvation.

    There is not a whole lot of time left to decide, as Jesus could call at any moment. Choose now, and Choose wisely. Be like Joshua in Joshua 24:15, where he told the Israelites to choose who they would serve. As for him and his household, they would serve the Lord.

    Today would not be too early to receive and accept the gift provided by our Savior. He’s waiting for you, but not for much longer.

    Maranatha! (Come Lord Jesus!)”

    Yesterday, my 6 y/o granddaughter asked “Will you take me to the park?”

    “Sure!” I answered. So, we loaded up some beverages and toys in her new school backpack with the Wolf on the back, and started walking.

    At first she was her usual self, chattering away about this and that. But then she got quiet for a minute or two, before resuming in a more serious tone:

    Her: (flatly) “God is real.”

    Me: “I never said he wasn’t”

    Her: “God made me”

    Me: (smiling) “Yes, he certainly did.”

    Her: “God made you, too.”

    Me: “I sure hope so!”

    Her: “Really. He did! And he made Mommy, and Bubba and Dexter… EVERYBODY.”

    Me: “He was really busy!”

    Her:”Yeah. He got lonely after all the dinosaurs died.”

    And there you have it. Mystery solved….
