After two days of following the most agonising news reports ever in the Nordic countries it is clear that the Devil's handyman is a blond, blue-eyed Norwegian. In my mind his deeds cannot be explained by psychology alone, it is evident that there is such a thing as pure evil and that it has taken possession of this man.
How else can you deliberately shoot down unarmed children, teenagers and youth? How else can your worldview get so warped that you truly believe that massmurder is the will of Christ?
Even if he once were a Christian he had definitely succumbed to the influence of the Devil. I cannot help, but thinking of C S Lewis who in his Screwtape letters demonstrated how the spiral of evil is set in motion and how perceptions can become skewed step by step. This man is in the same league as Hitler and Stalin.
My heart reaches out to all those in Norway who have lost someone they loved, a child, a grandchild, a sister, a brother, a cousin, a friend, a boyfriend, a girlfriend, a classmate, a colleague, and to all those bright young people who had their life ahead of them, but was robbed of it all by one malicious evil madman.
