I am a laid-back person, but I am strong in my beliefs. I do not enjoy other people telling me how to believe or implying that everyone should be the exact same in their thinking. Christ died and rose again to take away away our sins and iniquities, not our minds, and he knitted us together in our mother's womb to make a difference in our world. I love people and God, and I can't wait to reach Heaven!
I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

Osama Bin Laden and prayer
Ok, here is what I came up with. Half the people don't think we should celebrate, and half do. So my challenge is this: of the people on who pray, who really, truthfully prayed for bin Laden's salvation?
Why should people feel guilty for celebrating? Fine, if some should feel guilty, maybe others should feel guilty for not praying for his salvation. God DOES allow the wicked to die, just like he lets good people die.
It is too late to mourn Osama's lost soul as David found out, but we can do the Christian thing and pray for those who remain alive under him to accept Christ. "Lord let your light shine into their darkness."
Reference to David: 2 Samuel 12, where his child was dying. After he finally died, David stopped mourning, knowing there was nothing he could do for him.
"For it is the will of God that all men and women should be saved."
"But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and PRAY for those who spitefully use you and persecute you." - Matthew 5
