What is the difference a man that tortures and rapes his wife continually and the gos to preach on a Sunday or a man that tortures and kills many?
---Carla5754 on 11/24/07

Pkay, Justice has been served. To be a bleeding heart for someone who had many of his own people TORTURED, when they did not deserve it, only adds fuel to the fiery beliefs that diobedient children should not be spanked. BY THAT, I MEAN...If you do the crime, you should do the time. If you have MURDERED many innocent people to preserve your ego-serving "power", you should well pay for it. I am not for the war against Iraq, but GOD knew the EVILS that Saddam had done, and he got JUDGED for it!
---Gordon on 11/23/07

Yeh, I feel bad about him being hung. He should have been beheaded by masked thugs on live TV in accordance with Muslim terrorist tradition.
---jerry6593 on 11/23/07

The whole process was disgusting, inhumane and scandalous.We all agree he committed atrocities. But the scenes at his execution actually showed that his successors are not any better.It is sad.Its yet another sign of a world devoid of any decency,humanity and above all love.By the way when he was committing those atrocities, the West had very good relations with him.Has anybody in those governments been called to account?
---pkay on 11/21/07

unknown what could have been different; other than earlier choices made by this man earlier in his life. Know that it is not God's will for anyone to be separated from him. God knows the true intentions of this man's heart/mind happened just prior to his death. God will judge all men and those who enter into kingdom of God will be blessed. Sin is Sin & God's word says No sin shall be in his kingdom.Besides, who decides what is Big sin & what is a Little sin??? God does not want sin.

Jesus died for Sadaam, for the same reason he died for me ... we both have sinned and need to be forgiven. That means Jesus loves Sadaam just as much as he loves me ... so I'm sure Jesus wept when Sadaam was hung. I am sad when someone has to pay the ultimate price (death) for their sins while in this world. Even though the government was instituted by God to uphold justice and maintain order in this world, we don't have to 'celebrate' when people get their due. What if we all got our due?
---Mike on 2/3/07

YEA, that is the way it is suppose to be. GEOFF. Lets face it, not always to be.

Ramona, while it is ultimately up to God, remember:

For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: for he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil-Rom 13:3-4.
---Geoff on 2/2/07

It's been said that the U.S. invasion of Iraq was, in part, to bring democracy. Was Saddam tried in a democratic court? Allowed an appeal? President Bush, troubled by the hanging, called it a "revenge killing" & expressed doubts about the new government. Was he right or wrong?

Often biblical support is offered for his hanging. Was he convicted by bible believers? Was the bible actually used or applied to his trial and conviction?

How do Jesus' words in Matthew 5:38-48 apply here?
---AlwaysOn on 2/2/07

In response to this question. There is no question in my mind that saddam was on the side of the devil but i thought it was up to god to dole out the punishment not us.
---Ramona on 2/2/07

Because I am only human, yes I am glad yet in my spiritual belief, I say no. God loved the man even tho he murdered etc.God loves everyone bad or good. If Sadam repented n came to God, he would of been forgiven by God 4 the bible says so n yes, he would gain heavenly citizenship. 2bad tho he didnt repent.
---jana on 2/2/07

Its not a surprise to see the roman catholics backing the death penalty. meanwhile, the pope comes on tv saying "peace and love for everybody." like it always has been. But no christian backs death penalty. who applies the supreme judgment to another (death), applies it to him/herself. The antichrist followers will kill thinking they are doing Gods work. and they killed already, with the inquisition, for example.
---George on 2/1/07

There is no big/little sin, Sin is Sin right! scripture says.... the soul that sins shall surely die, Murder is sin, Our righteousnesses are as filthy rags according to Isaiah 63:6 All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.. If a man/woman refuses to obey, Death was not Christ's example . To murder anyone with the mosaic Law in mind was not their reason for punishing, they did so in view of what he had done and by people that were not saved themselves! Big difference...
---Carla5754 on 2/1/07

I believe if it go's for one it go's for All sin that it. Therefore your argument should read like this thread all those that take lives should be put to death, What about ABORTIONS? should all those that do it be Hung? I think not then examine your belief Cos this man was no different than serial abortionists the government you support allows Abortions millions of souls 'Legally Murdered' Wisdom! wisdom counts for everything, A Great Kings ruled by it.
---Carla5754 on 2/1/07

I have met many women that have lied using the futile excuses needed to abort as the baby would interfere with their ''status'' because it's so easy to do and is offered on an 24 hourly basis and aborted mercilessly over and over again. Some 3months others up to 5 months, So again I call it Murder first degree Out Right Murder. But never once did it occur to me that they should be put to death themselves for taking innocent lives because God is more than capable to deal with them.
---Carla5754 on 2/1/07

An answer would be much appreciated yes or no. If they are justified in murdering him would they have mercy on you being a Christian standing in opposition to their faith? I strongly suggest that we all get familiar with the scripture that says... FOR ALL HAVE SINNED and come short of the Glory of God... Romans 3:33 ...Our righteousnesses are as filthy rags....Isaiah 64:6

Carla, let the cop who never got a ticket in his life issue the first speeding ticket!!!

carla5754 I have already told you what to do. Those who executed Saddam did not sin. They did not murder him. Where is your protest against abortion? Saddam at least had a trial.
Caring what purpose would Bush lying serve just to start a war? What would he get out of it? And your investment is what? Sounds like you support the wrong side and enjoy it.

Once again Elder,
Were any of those that hung him without Sin? Let Your Yes be Yes or your no be NO.
---carla5754 on 1/28/07

Elder, because your commander in chief lied and acted irrationally without proper studying of the situation. With all the satellites and technology the US claims to have, I expected the US Soldiers to go and grab Saddam and arrest him instead, thousands of people including many US soldiers have been killed and God knows how many more will die before all this is over.
---Caring on 1/28/07

Caring, how can you be glad that Saddam is gone but you say nasty things about the US Commander in Chief on another blog?
Seems you want your cake...... and mine too.
---Elder on 1/28/07

I can assure you, although we have gotten rid of SADDEM H., nothing will change. Do you want to know why? Because of hate. HATE, that I can see and feel right here.May I say one other great thing? Unbelievers are the world's worst at judging.

I actually had mixed feelings about it. I am glad that he can no longer harm innocent people and can no longer raise havoc in the prisons and courts. How sad it is to see a man get so dispicable. The United States did not hang Saddem. The decision for his hanging was not from the United States. I disliked having to see the picture of it on the television.
---Pat on 1/27/07

Carla, there are times when one has to choose: either let Saddam live and allow him to kill more innocent people or get rid of the tyrant.

If he were left in jail, he could have either escaped or some lunatic would hold people at ransom demanding the release of Saddam.

I can assure you that Saddam is now a very safe person and no one has to fear him.
---Caring on 1/27/07

Carla5754 for a start read Rom 13. The NT is built upon the OT. There is no way in this forum that someone can explain some of the issues we try to deal with here.
Some think getting a book and reading it is study. It is not.
Saul committed killings under the law and became Paul the greatest figure in the NT besides Christ Himself. He was forgiven. He also repented.
Yet what a man commits he pays for.
Saddam became a law to himself and demanded that what he did was correct because it was him.
---Elder on 1/27/07

Elder: Having a prisoner caught and handicuffed, why not treat him as Jesus treated the adulterous woman? (who also deserved to die, by the law of God and by the law of man, just like Saddam) "Forgiveness" is the christian gift. I mean, "THE" gift. Imagine a christian president saying: "We, the People of____,forgive Saddam, and spare him the just death penalty he deserves, in the name of our King, Jesus Christ of Nazareth."
---George on 1/26/07

The woman brought by the pharisees deserved to die, according to the law of God, and to the law of man. It was just that she be stoned. The man who recently entered the Amish skool and killed those little girls, deserved to die too. Saddam, most certainly, deserved to die, too. In the first case, Jesus forgave her. In the second case, the Amish elders forgave the man, giving a shining testimony of christianity. In the third case, saddam was hung. you judge who acted more like Jesus.
---George on 1/26/07

Please explain to me if you would where in the New Testament does it explain that we should take a life for a life. Many on this site say we are no longer under the Old Mosaic law, and quote this quite liberally. He committed murder of which there is forgiveness even if he committed the unpardonable sin God meters out that sentence not man. Were any of these people justified in killing him meaning were they without sin themselves?
---Carla5754 on 1/26/07

Saddam was a monster. I read where he fed people to lions. The people were eaten alive. Oh oh. This reminds me of when God ordered the kids to be eaten by wild bears for making fun of a bald man. This is why I get confused. dont mind me, I'm just rambling...anyway, Saddam got his just reward.
---sue on 1/26/07

Some of the answers here show how far we have fell from what God has said. Many do not understand God's ways.
Saddam was not murdered. He was killed because he committed murder.
The Bible teaches that we are to judge with righteous judgement. We will be judged with the same judgement we use, Matt 7.
Saddam was a murder and was/is condemned to death by the Bible and the laws of man in accordance with the Bible.
Take time to learn.

Catherine, Saddam was a monster in the shape of a human being.

Let's just say: "Good riddance"
---Caring on 1/25/07

He deserves to be judged, tried and convicted but not murdered. Judge not least you also be judged by the same principles you have metered out to Saddem. we all need Mercy and forgiveness regardless of what we have done he believes in a false God in a part of the world that judged him that also believes in false Gods too That was NO JUSTICE!
---Carla5754 on 1/25/07

Every human being bares the image of God. We are to give proper respect to every person. As bad as S.H. was, He was a human being and yes, He deserved capital punishment. If it was carried out the way the media said it was, it makes me angry.

We do not know the thoughts of God. All throughout the OT, God approved of war to protect the seed of David so that Jesus will be born. Satan used men to try to break the link from Abraham to Jesus. How do we know that Saddam's hanging isn't for God's purpose? Just let it be and see what unfolds as the plans of God comes to a close.
---Steveng on 1/7/07

Though I hate sin, I share God's perspecitve:

For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye-Ez 18:32.

Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel-Ez 33:11?
---Geoff on 1/7/07

O well, if the Koran is correct, old Saddem may now very busy with his virgins having died a martyrs death.
Of course, he had a bridge of qualification to cross but since he only killed infidels instead of faithful Sunnis, he should do ok.
Think of it, they may have sent him off to the most sensual paradise imaginable!
---lee on 1/5/07

You ask: "was justice served?" Well, NO, it wasn't in my opinion. I doubt if justice could ever be served to a man like Saddam who tortured killed hundreds upon thousands of innocent men, women and children.He would have to have a punishment worse than death for true justice to be served. Maybe thats what is happening to him right now.

Thomas, I do feel bad about Saddam's execution. It's too easy to say what should be done, but my perspective is from the Bible. Because we were made in God's image, life is precious, even the person who did not seem to consider the lives he took as precious. But the Bible supports capital punishment.

Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made man-Gen 9:6.
---Geoff on 1/5/07

As a Christian aren't we supposed to come into agreement with God's word and agree with what God says in His word? Three times in the Bible it says, "If you shed a man's blood, your blood shall be shed." I know you're going to say that's OT. How about a NT scripture: "Don't be mocked, God is not fooled, whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap." We should be lifting up the name of Jesus instead of discussing someone filled with demons that didn't want to repent.
---Donna9759 on 1/5/07

I believe that the punishment must fit the crime. This man did things that warranted the death penalty. For those of you who are opposed to the death penalty, what of our God who ordered men into cities to kill and destroy everything including women, children, and even the livestock. Our God is a God of love, but He is also a God of wrath. I think Christians forget that. Again, Saddam got EXACTLY what he deserved, and I am glad he is gone.
---Crystal on 1/5/07

I am totally against capital punishment. However, the country where they hung Saddam have it as their law and that law has to be respected. The Government of Australia did not object to his hanging even they are against hanging. Somehow, with a monster like Saddam it somehow seemed a little different... he did very atrocious things and showed no remorse.

Like any other criminal that is locked away indefinately Saddem should have had the right to live out his miserable life behind bars. What they did was take a life which is the same crime as Ist DEGREE MURDER. gOD IS THE AVENGER not man. He that is without sin Hang him! He can be have forgiven without setting him free.
---Carla5754 on 1/5/07

I agree with Jack. Killing is never warranted.
---Katie on 1/5/07

The Word of God clearly says, "If a man shall take another man's life, so shall his life be taken by man." That's God's Word, not mine**

"Let him who is without sin among you cast the first stone," is ALSO God's word--and it's a later one, too.
---Jack on 1/4/07

Capital punishment is usually a very brief (although dreadful) punishment of which I disapprove. It punishes the loved ones of the criminal far more than it punishes the criminal. A punishment should be given in the hopes that the criminal will learn from it and become a better person. Saddam could have been given hard tasks to perform for life whilst living under conditions just sufficient to not take away his human rights. He would have then realised that what he did had brought him misery.

Hey, Jack. It sounds like you have a quarrel with the saints under the altar in Revelation 6:10. What does their cry for God's judgement say about them?

What does it say about a Jesus that is coming back to smite the nations (i.e. shed their blood)?

What does it say about a God who commanded entire races to be put to death because they were threats to His people? (see I Samuel)

Doubtless, your words, are judgement of the Lord, the martyred saints, and anyone who believes Genesis 9:6.
---Doc on 1/5/07

My life is way too hectic and busy to be thinking about whether or not I feel bad for someone like Saddam H. Could anything differently been done? Why are you asking us that question? Ask God. Ask Saddam why he didn't repent from killing all those people. This is one issue I have no feelings on and get angry at because there are so many people out there who are not murderers and are willing to hear the gospel and receive Christ. Why are we wasting our time talking about something that can't be undone?
---Anonymous on 1/4/07

Why don't you ask, "Why are we not feeding the hungry?" Why are we not seeking out the poor and the lost and giving them the gospel? This man was a murderer and as you know, EVERYONE reaps what they sow. I don't care one way or the other what happened to this man. Apparently, he killed MANY MANY people. Isn't it biblical that you reap what you sow? You sow death, you reap death.
---Anonymous on 1/4/07

The Word of God clearly says, "If a man shall take another man's life, so shall his life be taken by man." That's God's Word, not mine. Saddam got what he deserved and was non-repentant right up to the end. He was not sorry, only sorry he was caught. If he had been allowed to continue his tirades, many more innocents would have died horrific, dispicable deaths. I'm glad he is gone!

Capital punishment, like any form of killing, degrades those who are involved in it, not only its victim.

And yes, there are people who post to these blogs who are in favor of capital punishment. Doubtless, some of them even want to be the executioners.

If you want to shed blood for any reason, that says a lot about you, none of it good.
