Christian Hate

February 27, 2008 at 6:55 pm (Uncategorized)

I just got done looking at the web site for Westboro Baptist Church, http://www.godhatesfags.com, and I can’t believe the hatred that is being poured out. It kill’s me to see Christians missing the message completely. Jesus came down to earth to give us salvation. You didn’t see him picketing the funerals of homosexuals. Jesus would love the person regardless of the sin. When did we as the people of God get so proud that we started becoming the judges of the earth? When did we loose sight of the teachings of Christ? We were called to “Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:12-13.
Where is the love? Where is the compassion? Where are the Christians that are following the teaching of Jesus? Why are we twisting scripture? Where is the hate for others coming from?
It’s no wonder that people don’t want to go to church.
Churches like Westboro are just making it harder for us to spread to story of Christ to the un-reached. I wish that there were a way to sit people like Fred Philps and his congregation down and smack them until the hate is gone. Unfortunately, that is not an option. Instead, we have to continue to live out the love that God gave to us. We have to shine his light even in the darkest place. We don’t want to be the reason that someone doesn’t except Christ into their life.

    I was just curious…so I looked up GodLovesFags.com and it is a group of people that blog about those wack-a-do’s at Westboro.

    FYI – Westboro was just recently ordered to pay 10.9 million dollars because they picketed a soldier’s funeral.
