Love in Hard Places–On the Death of Osama bin Laden

May 3, 2011

On the assassination of Osama bin Laden, Justin Taylor gives these words from the 2002 book, Love in Hard Places by D. A. Carson:

He is an evil man, and he must be stopped, but he is a man, and we should take no pleasure in destroying him. Vengeance is the Lord’s alone.

Do not offer the alternative, “Should we weep for Osama bin Laden or hold him to account for his genocide and prevent him from carrying out his violent intentions?”

The right answer is yes.
