If you were to take a look at my Facebook, there’s a particular section that might worry you, specifically the section of people who inspire me. I mean, it’s just got some perfectly reasonable human beings. Martin Luther. Jeffrey Dahmer. David Berkowitz. Wait, what? Did I just seriously put The Milwaukee Cannibal and The Son of Sam on a list of people who inspire me? Well yes I did.
These are two of the most famous serial killers of our time. To many, they are the embodiment of evil. So what makes them so inspiring? It’s that Christ forgave them. These wicked evil men, men so evil that society deems them worse than the devil himself, were given repentance and faith through Jesus Christ. And if Jesus can bring them to salvation, he can do the same for me.
