I watched the Oscar Pistorius Interview with ITV the other night. I couldn’t help but offer a silent prayer as I watched him sobbing…
“…there was so much blood….there was just so much blood.”
He broke down. Just as he had during the court case. His tears broke my heart, I can’t even begin to imagine how he must be feeling!
I really hope he can forgive himself – and that society as a whole can forgive him too.
Reeva Steenkamp’s life is over. It was sadly taken away from her for reasons none of us will ever know until God tells us about it one day. One life was taken away, why should we ruin another?
There are so many people out there calling for his head,making fun of his disability, hoping he rots and is raped in jail….
But why? Is he not a human being anymore? What will the name calling solve? And when does Justice stop being “merciful” and start being overly Retributive? Overly Punitive?
Remember Shrien Diwani?? Everyone vilified him, yet he was eventually acquitted! Imagine if God tried us like this? No one would be able to stand on that great day when His (God’s) wrath comes down!!!
Why jump onto the band wagon then? He is not your monkey and this is not your circus!!!
Yes – he IS a murder. But remember, God love everyone.
If God so loved the world (Oscar Pistorius), that He gave His only begotten Son to die for Oscar’s sins, why should YOU, dear MORTAL man, esteem yourself to be better than God and not forgive another Human Being?
Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
What makes your sins any better or less than what he did?
For ALL have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.
Not SOME have sinned. It’s ALL.
ALL OF US ARE SINNERS. And according to God all sins are the same. So WHY should YOUR sins be superior to those of Oscar Pistorius?
Don’t judge someone because they sin differently from you. Just remember that. God wants us to LOVE everyone.
Regardless of the sentence – I do hope people can forgive him. And i pray that he can learn to forgive himself.
His life will never be the same – so why should society make what’s left of it miserable?
