Most of you have probably heard about the shootings at an Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster Co., Penn. It's a tragic story. There has been news, however, that the Amish have forgiven the murderer and have resigned to the girls' deaths as being God's will.

My question is, can the Amish properly forgive the murderer? He never repented and in fact he killed himself. Is it possible to forgive someone who does not repent and who is dead and for that reason can no longer be held accountable before men?


I tell you, this man went down to his house justified.
