Recently a Man in High Power Passed Away

Quite recently a notorious American politician passed away. From all we can tell, he was an enemy of God and a disgrace even to his false religion. This post is dedicated to his memory, which I hope will soon pass.

Psalm 37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

Psalm 68:2 As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

Psalm 112:10 The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Proverbs 10:28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.

Proverbs 11:7 When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth.

Proverbs 11:10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

Proverbs 28:28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.

I cannot verify whether all the details in the linked page are true - but the most significant ones are beyond dispute. (link)

As was said by the Jews at Purim (and perhaps still is?), "Let the name of the ungodly perish!"

I don't know why so few are willing to state the obvious as you have done here, TF.

Teddy Kennedy was a vile, wicked, manifestly evil man in life, who relentlessly advocated for vile, wicked, and manifestly evil public policy.

The man never manifested an inkling of saving grace, and he died a professing Papist.

One can only surmise that apart from a miraculous and gracious thief-on-the-cross / road to Damascus deathbed conversion Teddy Kennedy is even now lifting up his eyes from torments in hell.

The real Teddy Kennedy legacy

Soli Deo Gloria!
