Norweigian killer demonstrates identity crisis

A 32-year old Norwegian, Anders Behring Breivik, went on rampage on July 22 and started to systematically shoot to scores of youth who were on holidays on an Island. To distract the police, he had initially detonated a car bomb at the Government House in Oslo. Eight people were killed in the car bomb, while 69 youths were shot dead in cold blood on the Island of Utoeya, 40 kilometres away (25 miles) see

One fact clearly demonstrated by this sad incident is the identity crisis in the Church. Wonder of wonders, Anders Breivik sees and describes himself as a Christian and a conservative! Indeed, according to him, his motive for the dastard killings was to save (supposed Christian) Norway and Western Europe from a Muslim takeover”. (

But in the same breath (as documented in his lifestyle and his “manifesto”), Mr breivik says he is “not an excessively religious man and reveres Darwinism. ( In a blog he advocated that all protestants convert enmasse to Catholicism – Breivik, apart from being a so-called “Knight Templar” is also a Mason. See picture dressed in Masonic garb at

In a self-interview he did in his manifesto, he explains what it means to be a Christian:
Q: Do I have to believe in god or Jesus in order to become a Justiciar Knight?
A: As this is a cultural war, our definition of being a Christian does not necessarily constitute that you are required to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus.

In fact, Breivik emphasized that “ Christian fundamentalist theocracy” is “everything we DO NOT want,” and a “secular European society” is “what we DO want.” It is enough that you are a Christian agnostic or a Christian atheist” This is sad, not only in the calculated efforts by the world’s antichristian media houses to use this event to rope in “fundamentalist christianity”.

It is truly sad that people could so much be confused in their identity. - thinking themselves Christian while working ardently against the Lord’s interests and instructions. Scriptures like Ephesiasns 5:5-6 or Mathew 7:21-23 apparently don’t make any sense to this class of people. What blindness!
