Jesus of Nazareth and Osama bin Laden

A lot of people are talking about some church signs in Australia that read “Jesus Loves Osama.” Frankly, it dumbfounds me that what I take as an article of faith, so many who call themselves “Christians” dispute. The statement of Jesus’ love for Osama bin Laden is entirely consistent with Scripture. It does not mean an endorsement of his activities or condone his role in the murders of thousands around the world. It does not mean that he should not be brought to justice for his crimes against humanity. It is a statement of the grace of God available to all through Christ.

If God doesn’t love Osama bin Laden, what hope do you have?
