Norway now mourns over the massacre at Utoya and the bombling in Central Oslo

It is every parent's nightmare, the fear of losing children and having to bury them.  Families of the victims of the Oslo bombing and Utoya murders, by Anders Breivik, are feeling such terrible pain and grief.  Thousands have gathered around the Lutheran Cathedral in Oslo to show solidarity, compassion, grief and respect for the many lives so tragically taken by a fanatic.  Tears have flowed.  Many hearts are heavy this morning as Norway is facing its worst disaster and loss of life since the Second World War.  Around 100 people, mainly young people, have been swept into eternity as the result of a right wing maniac who had no respect for their lives or pleas for mercy.  Breivik showed no mercy but cold and calculated cruelty in slaying so many with his weapons of wickedness.  It is clear that there is hate in his heart.  This was a hate crime against humanity, which Breivik so evidently lacked.  He has claimed to follow some form of Christian teaching, but no one or no theology can justify such outrageous actions.  To hate is to do the work of the devil.  1John 3:8,10,14-20.  Christian ethics are centred in faith expressing itself through love. Galatians 5:6b.

Breivik has allowed a root of bitterness to grow within his soul; he was following the dangerous way of demonic destruction and did what was right in his own eyes.  They were not fixed on Christ, so there is absolutely nothing Christian in his actions. Breivik is a liar like the devil, who is his master. He has listened to lies, believed lies and now evil has come from his life.  He does not follow the Way, the Truth and the Life. How dare he claim to do any of these wicked works in the name of Christian teaching!

Update 26/7/11
It is now estimated that less than 100 but over 70 people died in the two events caused by bad guy Anders Behring Breivik, the bestial butcher.
