The condemnation of a madman's treachery and butchery on Oslo will ring down from every church in Christendom. The wickedness on Friday is unfathomable. Accounts differ, but if the attacker claims (as some news outlets report) to be a follower of Christ, this is only a testament to the bottomless capacity of man for self-deception. Likewise with the derangement that leads a man who estimates himself a defender of the West to become a terrorist against the West. In truth he is an apostate of the most craven and despicable sort, an enemy of Christ and of the West motivated by every spring of wayward passion which Jesus Christ condemns; and his name will rot in infamy.
For the victims and survivors we can only pray that the Lord God will extend his mercy and comfort: the true fruits of the spirit of Christ.
And we can pray for justice. Norwegian law does not compass the penalty that this crime deserves, but God is on his throne in Heaven, and vengeance is the Lord's.
