My stomach turned a little this morning when I was listening to the news and heard the terrorist who perpetrated the attacks in Norway referred to as a "Christian fundamentalist." My question is, which fundamental of the of Christian religion was on display during the tragedy in Norway? The fact is that anyone who would do such a thing must be very deluded to consider himself a Christian, much less a Christian fundamentalist. It seems akin to taking the Lord's name in vain who said, "But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you," to refer to one as a Christian, a Christ-follower, who would do such a thing to those he considered his enemies.
My prayers are with the people of Norway. May God have mercy on them and may justice come to the guilty.
Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep.
Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.
