|God has delivered Osama bin Laden into our hands|
May. 2nd, 2011 at 12:20 am
The good news is that Osama bin Laden in now exactly 1 year away from being eligible to have his temple work done. The bad news is that some fool will probably do it.
For my part, I view the conflict between Osama bin Laden and the USA as a religious conflict. After all, that’s the way Osama bin Laden wanted it defined. Plus, it brings to mind Nephi’s salient (and brilliantly reductive) description of the cosmic conflict between two churches. Nephi writes in 1 Nephi 14:9-11; 15-16:
Yesterday, the wrath of God was poured out upon the church of the devil, and He delivered Osama bin Laden into our hands. Let our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Osama bin Laden’s victims and their families.
Let us rejoice for the death of bin Laden. Our children will now grow up in a world free of Osama bin Laden. This is as good a time as any to dance in the streets and hand out candy.
