These girls were murdered in my hometown.
Liberty German was 14 years old.
Abigail Williams was 13 years old.
They were just hiking a trail in a park.
Two innocent girls, killed for no reason.
Do you think we should even bother trying to find the killer?
If the killer is found, what should happen to him?
Would you just ‘forgive’ him?
Would you tell Abigail’s family to do the same?
Would you lecture Liberty’s family about compassion?
Should the murderer be released?
Punishing the killer won’t bring the girls back, right?
We’ve all made mistakes.
Does this seem reasonable to you?
Suppose the killer is never found.
Suppose the killer lives comfortably to a ripe old age.
What do you think God should do?
Would you be cool with a God who doesn’t mind murder?
Would you worship a God who cares nothing for justice?
Could you adore a God who offers no comfort to heartbroken parents?
You want to live forever next door to the guy who never felt remorse for this crime?
Be very careful how you answer these questions.
Because if you won’t say this sin deserves punishment…
…you are a monster too.
