    remember god forgives all sins of everyone, so with gods blessing he gets a pass, only humans can seek revenge for such horrors, which is illegal and forbidden in the bible, but you can be forgiven for seeking revenge also, so you see even the last man standing gets a free pass with an “i’m sorry’……….. enjoy your christian lifestyle, it is what everyone else does…………. right?
