Media @ New Hope CalgaryIn this message we are going to try and understand God’s suffering, justice seeking heart through the parable of Canadian Gen. Romeo Dallaire.

“I cannot understand how you can kill a one week old baby…”
Gen. Romeo Dalliare

“In 1994, Canadian General Romeo Dallaire led a hopelessly underfunded United Nations peacekeeping mission to Rwanda. Abandoned by the Western powers, he watched helplessly as more than 800,000 Rwandans were slaughtered in 100 days. As the genocide raged, Dallaire was condemned to peer into the heard of darkness, to witness the failure of humanity, to shake hands with the devil.”
From the Documentary, Shake Hands with the Devil

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Edmund Burke

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.”
Jesus in Matthew 23:27

“While you were doing all these things, declares the LORD, I spoke to you again and again, but you did not listen; I called you, but you did not answer.”
God through the prophet Jeremiah 7:13

“I knew Romeo wouldn’t come back. Romeo’s not the type of person to just drop everything and take off. Anybody in his right mind couldn’t have done that – just to abandon a whole nation!”
Dallaire’s wife Elizabeth

“I will never leave you or forsake you,”
God to Joshua 1:5

“If I had been able to literally shake hands with the Devil (the leaders of the genocide) it only seems absolutely logical that there’s another entity. Because there is that extreme of evil, there is that other extreme of the purest of good.”
Romeo Dalliare, Shaking Hands with the Devil, A Documentary
