Forgiveness for bin Laden?

SHARE Forgiveness for bin Laden?

In response to Ron Murphy's letter, "Don't forgive bin Laden" (Jan. 2), as long we are swapping scriptures, Doctrine and Covenants 64:10 "I, the Lord, will forgive whom I will forgive, but of you it is required to forgive all men."

There is also one in the Bible that whatever deity you believe in, it holds a teaching that perhaps every church has taught, and it applies to all men, all human beings, which like it or not is what bin Laden is.

Matthew 5:43-44 "Ye have heard that it has been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy. But I say unto, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you."

Now I want justice given to bin Laden, and I know that whether he is killed or captured he will get what is coming to him, but as to whether or not to forgive him, the answer is simple. I do.
