“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” -Romans 3:23 ESV
Why target the leader of the LRA?
He’s done terrible things! Yes, I will agree with that, but so have we all.
I’ve never killed anyone!!
““You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.” – Matthew 5:21-22 ESV
I’ve never forced anyone into sex slavery!!
““You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” – Matthew 5:27-28 ESV
I do believe that Joseph Kony should be brought to justice, but we must remember that he will one day face the ultimate judge. While he will have to answer to his own actions, we will have to answer to our own.
““Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you.
Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
(Matthew 7:1-5 ESV)
I’ll leave you with this:
“Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; Lest the LORD see it, and it displease Him.” Proverbs 24: 17-18
