They Told Me “God hates fags!”

Reading: Romans 8:31-39

God hates fags.   This is something that Westboro Baptist Church is constantly preaching.  Fags – a term short for faggot – are unlawful people who should kill themselves and go to hell.  Who are these people who have decided to desecrate God’s covenant of marriage?  In Leviticus 18:22 says, “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman.  It is a detestable sin.”  America has bought the lie that it is perfectly alright to be gay or a lesbian, and because of this America is damned to hell.  I mean look at the leadership it’s currently under, he accepts gays because he is a democrat and they say that we should have the freedom to marry whoever we want!

I have some news for you:  God loves fags.  God LOVES fags.  God ABSOLUTELY LOVES fags!!  He loves lesbians.  He loves rapists.  He loves murderers.  He loves arsonists.  He loves those people who commit suicide.  He loves everybody!  Let me say it again:  GOD LOVES EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!  And praise God he does.  Now don’t get me wrong: God absolutely abhors sin.  He cannot stand it.  But He so desperately loves the sinner.  I would be lost without the love of God.  I would be condemned to Hell if I had not accepted his gift of forgiveness.  I would be lost to the fires of the Devil and his minions.  I would be dead to Him.  I would be destined to die forever if it was not for His love.

What Westboro Baptist Church is doing and proclaiming absolutely sickens me.  It sickens me!  It makes me want to throw up, and just give up on humanity.  The members of WBC should be ashamed to call themselves Christians and Disciples.  They should be running in fear of God’s wrath against them instead of telling everybody who practices homosexuality that God’s wrath will come down on them.  They bring disgrace to the name Christian.  They are the Pharisees of our current day America.

The word Christian means Christ-like.  Jesus Christ loved everybody from the prostitute to the Pharisee.  As Christians, we must make it our goal to accept everybody regardless of their sexual orientation, their past, their current struggles, their family, or any other way they might make themselves unappealing to the world.  It is our mission to spread the true love of Christ to the rest of the world.  It is our goal to bring people closer to God, not shove them away.  It is our goal to build people up, not tear them down.  There will be retribution in Heaven for sins committed here on Earth for those of us who have not confessed a faith in Jesus, but on Earth, the worst thing that a so-called Christian can do is tear into those who are hurting and those who need God’s love the most.

Prayer:  Pray for the members of Westboro Baptist Church that they will find the true love of God.  Pray for God’s love to infect them to the point that they can no longer withstand its power.  Pray for everybody that is incapable of feeling the love of God.  Pray that the Church will be able to reach them before they do something that they will regret.  Pray that the Church can be the example of what to do, not how to alienate the rest of the world.
