Breaking: Kidnapper Ariel Castro Dead

The kidnapper who held 3 women captive for 10 years was found dead in his cell, apparently a suicide.

I do not know what kinds of depravity was in his heart but I’m sure it was all the same stuff that common to us all. He had no greater need of a Savior than anyone else, yet I see so much rejoicing in his death. It’s heartbreaking.

It’s heartbreaking because maybe he knew the Gospel and rejected it. It’s heartbreaking because maybe he knew the Gospel and at one point honestly and really believed and then Hell came after him to turn him into its monster for a time. If that’s so, he is free now. And maybe he never heard or saw Jesus living in one of us. Maybe he never really knew. God knows.

In the coming hours and days PLEASE guard your heart against rejoicing in this needless death.
