Praise God for Hell

I've never really felt this way before, but when I read this article that told of the 4 people who were sexually assaulted in their apartment in Waterloo, it was my first reaction. I don't wish anyone to go to hell, because neither does God. But when I realise how sinful man is, sometimes I am thankful for justice.

While I was trying to type in the labels for this post, I started thinking of me. Now I'm thankful for Jesus.

Interestingly, the Daily Tele (and its readers see the comments) seems to feel the same way about the Bali bombers.

The worst of insults, being equated with tele readers!

I don't wish the man hell, I don't want anyone to go to hell. When I think of hell I struggle to reconcile it with a loving God most of the time (if I'm being brutally honest). As I read the comments most of the readers wanted the Bali Bombers to meet the devil. I want both the Bali bombers and the perpetrator of this horrible crime to know Jesus and receive forgiveness.
Were the tele readers saying this?

When I heard about it, my first thought was thank God that one day there will be justice for these wrongs.
