"Jesus died for Michael."The above quote is from a blog called "Church of the Acronym."

No, Jesus did not die specifically for Michael Schiavo. He died for all those who would hearken to Him, and all those who would accept Him and Him alone as their Savior. One cannot simultaneously claim Christ and REJECT Him while in the throes of unrepentant sin.
If you must insist that "Jesus died for Michael," remember that Michael is currently spitting on that very sacrifice of our Lord. This murder of his wife-in-name-only is not compatible with Christian doctrine. His living openly with his adulterous mistress and illegitimate children is not compatible with Christian doctrine.
One cannot have the salvation that is through Christ alone while simultaneously rejecting that salvation and throwing it away with both hands.
In some people's excessive zeal about God's mercy, they become blind to or ignorant of God's JUSTICE.
Pray for Terri Schindler-Schiavo and her family. Michael is not the one who is dying a cruel and wretched death at the moment. You can save your sympathy for him regarding his self-chosen path until some other time.
You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
