I don't rejoice in the death of Osama Bin Laden

I don't rejoice in the death of Osama Bin Laden he is a sinner who didn't trust in Jesus Christ therefore is in Hell, it saddens me. I understand what was done had to be, he was a murder of thousands who had to be brought to justice and those who did are justified in doing so. It saddens me because I deserve the same, the only difference is I have "been saved by grace through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast" (Eph 2:8-9), I don't deserve grace anymore than Osama Bin Laden but my Lord loved me and took the punishment I deserve. (James 2:10) says, "For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all", in other words sin is sin. Osama Bin Laden was a murder, Jesus said: “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment" (Matt 5:21-22), in God's eyes murder and anger are the same. How many people have you been angry at? (1 John 3:15) says, "Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him". Have you hated anyone? Unless you repent and trust alone in Jesus Christ your fate is the same!

Repent and trust alone in Jesus Christ,
