June 11, 2001, Timothy McVey, the home-grown terrorist who bombed the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was executed. His final statement to the world was this poem. As he faced his executioner, he still wanted the same thing Adam and Eve wanted. To be master of his own fate—captain of his own soul. That’s what McVey wanted, because that’s what all mankind wants. Ever since that first sin in the Garden, mankind has tried to be master of his own fate and captain of his own soul. God knew that. And because of His love for mankind, He made us a promise. Immediately after the sin had been committed. In the middle of pronouncing judgment on mankind as a result of that sin. Because He loves us, God promised a redeemer.
