Thus we read in the book of Proverbs chapter 10 verse 6. The entire verse reads as follows,
“The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.”
Martin McGuinness, the “former” IRA commander died this week and was buried yesterday.
It appears that he never repented of his evil and wicked deeds.
The IRA were/are a bloodthirsty murderous organisation and Martin McGuinness was one of its commanders, and one shudders when one remembers the many victims of these terrorists.
Martin McGuinness became the Deputy First Minister of the Northern Ireland Assembly in 2007, because, and only because, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) headed by the late Ian Paisley were power-hungry, which led to them abandoning their previously held convictions about never sharing power with terrorists.
Their shocking compromise led to the unholy alliance between Ian Paisley who became First Minister and Martin McGuinness who became Deputy First Minister.
The DUP (and the Paisley family) never pulled back from the brink but instead have continued on the downward spiral with one compromise after another.
Martin McGuinness has left a legacy of tears, broken hearts, empty chairs and fatherless and motherless children.
Let the foolish and the deluded praise him. The Bible says the name of the wicked shall rot.
