Misplaced Sympathy for the Murderers of Terri Schiavo
Have some of you completely lost your minds? When I read in blog after blog the pleas and requests for prayers on behalf of Michael Schiavo, George Felos, judge George W. Greer et al., it boggles the mind! If pray for them you must, then pray that they be shown the error of their ways, pray that they be brought to repentance, pray that they be called to ask for forgiveness and seek salvation through Christ our Lord.
But all that other nonsense about "not judging" the murderers who are still stained with the blood of their victim and still smiling and boasting amid the very reek of their iniquity has got to stop. Are you trying to turn your other cheek for Terri Schindler (Schiavo)? Can you possibly think that you have been appointed to turn your cheek for her, to turn your cheek for her wronged family?
Are you even aware that praying for someone in the abyss of their wickedness when they are without the slightest hint of remorse can anger God, rather than move Him to mercy?
"As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you." (Jeremiah 7:16).
"Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them; for I will not listen when they call to Me because of their disaster." (Jeremiah 11:14).
"So the Lord said to me, “Do not pray for the welfare of this people. When they fast, I am not going to listen to their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and grain offering, I am not going to accept them. Rather I am going to make an end of them by the sword, famine and pestilence” (Jeremiah 14:11,12).
"Then the Lord said to me, “Even though Moses and Samuel were to stand before Me, My heart would not be with this people; send them away from My presence and let them go!” (Jeremiah 15:1)
For you to pray for God's mercy to be bestowed on a child molester at the very time the molester is raping a child, rather than act to STOP the rape of the child or other children in the future, is a mockery and a travesty! Have you abandoned your wits?
So many unbelievers have remarked about "Why didn't God do something to stop the murder of Terri Schiavo if He is so against it, as you Christians and Jews claim He is." I tell you truly, He did do something! He made you and me and gave us enough instruction to know that Terri's brutal murder at the hands of these thugs was wrong and to know that we should stop it. God did not fail us or Terri Schiavo. We failed God and Terri.
And yet you have the effrontery to plead for murderers who lack the grace to plead for themselves?!?! Grow up in the eye's of God and stop making excuses for and covering their sins! Your prayers would be better directed toward pleading that our country never allow such a thing to happen again as we stand by. Your prayers would be better directed toward asking for the courage and strength and wisdom to combat this evil and turn this tide. God gave us free will, thus He is not going to do all this for us. God have mercy on us who tried but failed! But may He have just retribution on the perpetrators so that through chastisement, they may even yet be saved.
You've been told and NOW YOU KNOW.
