South African paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorious was released from prison and is currently under house arrest one year after killing girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.

According to BBC, Pistorius will serve the remainder of his five-year sentence at his uncle’s lavish Pretoria home.

Steenkamp’s relatives are not happy about this development, as they think Pistorius is “getting off lightly”.

Here are the Dos & Donts Pistorious is expected to keep in mind:

  • No access to firearms
  • No taking of drugs or alcohol, and can be randomly tested by officials
  • Continue with psychotherapy sessions
  • No going out at night
  • Can work; will not be electronically tagged
  • His lawyers say track and field training is part of work, but this is still unclear

      Nah, he’s already asked skydaddy for forgiveness did you not follow the trial?

      Yes he shot her, he didn’t deny that but there was no mens rea (i.e intention/motive) for this action hence the manslaughter charge. I’m sure he’s now square with sky daddy hence the early release Oscar prayed for. He’ll be doing thanksgiving on Sunday. You see that’s the dilemma with prayers, God’s answering of some prayers is bound to cause indignation for others. I know my blood does boil when people say sky daddy helped them get a job, child, mortgage reduction, partner yet sky daddy stands by and does nothing for those afflicted with starvation, disease, abuse of minors, apparently it’s all in his plan and don’t you dare question this plan I’m told, for his ways are not our ways. Indeed not, I expect so much better from a supreme omnipotent, benevolent being.

      I wish you didn’t spoke from a place of knowledge about the Scriptures. The thing with God is this. If Oscar asked for forgiveness and is still getting the rewards from telling a lie there is no forgiveness because there hasn’t been genuine repentance. If he told the truth then so be it… God is a God of justice. If he got away now (assuming he lied to the court), there is eternity awaiting him plus one cannot run away from their conscience. A troubled conscience is probably worse than being in jail.

      Secondly, its funny how people talk about starvation etc and how God has not solved these problems. If you look at Deuteronomy 24 when God was giving laws to the children of Israel. He made provisions for the poor. He basically told the people who had more to leave produce in their fields for the poor, orphans, widows, etc. We as humans have the responsibility to take care of people who have less than us. If we all did, our next door neighbours would not go to bed hungry. Thing is, we just care about ourselves, are selfish but God has put us on this earth to take care of each other. In fact, it is one of the things He expects of those who profess themselves to be christian. Now I would pose this question to you. What have you done to help the poor around you? But then again you ask God, He provides…
      Also, if people followed God’s laws would there be rape or child abuse etc? No because people would rather obey God than sin. When Adam and Eve sinned, everyone got free will. Satan began to rule this world that is why after the second coming of Christ, there will be a war between Christ and Satan. Christ will defeat the AntiChrist, False Prophet and Satan; Satan would be defeated and cast into the bottomless. Christ will then reign supreme in the millennial reign for 1000 years and in those years, the world would be perfect at this time. So in the main time there will be no perfect world until Christ comes to reign on the earth. That being said, one has to come to Christ to experience the benefits of being a Child of God.
      For those who have gone through such horrible horrible situations, God would heal those wounds if they come to Him; nobody deserves to go through abuse, rape, etc. I was in a depressed state, I am only healing now only because God would speak to me through the scriptures and change my thought process and also cos of prayer. In fact, it is the reason why I would defend the existence of God all day everyday because it was through that painful experience that I am super sure of His existence (not that I wasn’t a christian before). so I know God is able to heal those wounds. You cant experience God if you don’t go to Him in sincerity. It is the truth of the matter. God didn’t promise that you won’t go through tough times, but He promised that He will never let you fall and that He will pull you back up. I am a living proof of this.

      Sorry for the long speech but this is something I am quite passionate about

    Yea, he’s been released and? A ruling was made according to the recognised law of the land and he served time again in accordance with the law.

    The judicial system is punishing a lot more than a sky daddy would, for the ultra religious sheeple soon to comment on injustice and etc., even if he did intentionally shoot her, Sky daddy would just ask him to confess and ask for forgiveness to thin air in the privacy of his home and – “your sins and lawless acts I will remember no more. And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin” Heb 10.17-18.

      Is it God you’re calling sky daddy? I’m just wondering what’s going on

      Yes. A term widely used by atheists. When people who aren’t atheists use it, they may not know it’s derogatory.

      Perhaps you prefer daddy in the sky? A certain GO likes to call god, daddy.

    So now it is not only homosexuals that BN breeds but also atheists. It’s okay. As for you @becca, no one is forcing you to believe in God but can you at least have some respect? It’s the least you can give?
    It is not nice to put down someone else’s religion.

      It is not nice to subtly put down someone else’s sexuality, even more so when it isn’t your business.

    This is only happening because he is white and disabled. If he had been a black man, they would have taken away his blade legs and thrown him in jail for 10 years!
