Did O.J. Simpson Do It?

On June 12 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were savagely knifed to death outside of her home in Los Angeles; 5 days later, Nicole's estranged husband, former football great O.J. Simpson, was arrested after a bizarre live-TV "Bronco chase" on the freeway and charged with the murders. On October 3 1995, a criminal-court jury acquitted Mr. Simpson; on February 4 1997, a civil-court jury found Mr. Simpson liable for the killings. Throughout it all, and to this day, Mr. Simpson maintains that he is innocent, and many believe him. Others are convinced that he was the killer. Even though years have now passed since the "trial of the century," many are still asking the question, "Did O.J. do it?"

The Scales Of Justice One thing is certain, whoever the murderer is, he has not yet faced justice for that horrible crime. The important word there is yet, because although there were no actual witnesses to the murders who testified at the criminal or civil trials, there is coming another day of judgment when those who saw it all will testify. The murderer, whoever he turns out to be, will then be identified with absolute certainty. There is no escape from justice for anyone.

The Victims Themselves

Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, as with everyone else who has died through the ages, are at this moment in a deep, peaceful sleep (see What Happens When You Die?) from which they will one day be resurrected to life. What better human eyewitnesses could there be than the victims themselves?

"Thy dead shall live, their bodies shall rise. O dwellers in the dust, awake and sing for joy!" (Isaiah 26:19 RSV)

"For this we declare to you by the word of The Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of The Lord, shall not precede those who have fallen asleep.For The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel's call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air." (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 RSV).

"The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended." (Revelation 20:5 RSV)

God Knows Who Did It

But what if the murderer was wearing a disguise, or a mask of some sort, so that the victims couldn't see who it was? No problem. Masks and disguises don't work with God.

"Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. I tell you, My friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear Him Who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!" (Luke 12:2-5 RSV)

"For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And before Him no creature is hidden, but all are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do." (Hebrews 4:12-13 RSV)

No One Gets Away With Anything

Humans can sometimes seemingly get away with deceiving other humans, at least for a while, but God absolutely cannot be fooled at all. It doesn't work with Him. Sooner or later, everyone gets what's coming to them, for good or bad.

"It is The Lord who judges me. Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before The Lord comes, Who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then every man will receive his commendation from God." (1 Corinthians 4:4-5 RSV)
