Norway Massacre

Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.
If you say, “See, we did not know this,”
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts?
And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work?
Proverbs 24:11, 12 NASB
Do not fret because of evildoers
Or be envious of the wicked;
For there will be no future for the evil man;
The lamp of the wicked will be put out.
Proverbs 24:19, 20 NASB
The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked,
And the one who loves violence His soul hates.
Psalm 141:10 NASB
Doing wickedness is like sport to a fool,
And so is wisdom to a man of understanding.
Proverbs 10:23 NASB
The Norway massacre was not the act of a Christian. The guy saying that he was a Christian doesn't make it so anymore than saying he was actually a policeman just because he was dressed up as one. I read that many in Norway call themselves Christians. I think that is like people here in the South of the U.S. who go to church just for a social life (not that I'm saying that people like that are a bunch of murderers of course!).
I'm just afraid that people are going to stereotype all Christian conservatives as being like this guy. Christians are not to be against other we are all equal. As far as other religious people, we are to love the people and proclaim the Gospel to them. We are not better than other people. True Christians are a forgiven people saved by God's mercy and grace and goodness. We want all people to come to a saving knowledge of the truth.
