A Time to Hate
If the only Sodomites you see are on the “hell-e-vision,” then you will gradually become softer on them. TV is not real, friend. Many Christians, if they are honest with themselves, would probably have to say that they were somewhat indifferent to what happened in Orlando. Well, having no love for the Sodomites is a start. I mean, good night, I would hope that most fundamental Baptists weren’t mourning a bunch of perverts carousing in a “gay” bar.
But now, persecution has come. The homos have come after us with their protests and other persecution, but it isn’t working. They think they will cause people to become more tolerant, but being confronted by protestors week after week has the opposite effect. It only makes the people at these churches angrier.
For those who have only seen the protests via the news clips, you are only seeing a part of what goes on. The media will show you the “Love Conquers Hate” signs, but they won’t show you the signs that say things like, “WE’RE GOING TO RAPE YOUR SISTERS AND MOTHERS.” Yes, that was an actual sign that was held up here at Faithful Word Baptist Church. Signs seen at Verity Baptist Church on Sunday morning mocked the Lord Jesus Christ, and on Sunday evening at Verity, a sign calling Pastor Jimenez an obscene name was shown to children as they made their way to their cars with their parents.
The protestors aren’t silent either - they mock people who are trying to ignore them. Calling godly ladies whores and tramps and making fun of an older man’s gray hair are a couple examples of the heckling that goes on as people make their way out of the building. This type of behavior only serves to get church members even more fired up about being faithful to church and doing more soul winning.
Yes, there are occasional casualties because this is a war. We are fighting a spiritual warfare, and I encourage you to stay in the battle. When someone leaves your church amidst persecution, why don’t you just take that person’s place by becoming more involved?
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
I’ve seen posts on facebook where the Sodomites are discussing which type of protest signs are more “effective.” I’m not sure how they think they can quantify this since we have not backed down. The Bible is still being preached, and the faithful keep showing up for church and soul winning. Perhaps by effective, they mean that the more peaceful sounding slogans make for better propaganda. No matter what the signs say, just having these freaks show up at our churches is very effective, but not in the way they intend. It is effective in waking up complacent Christians by turning their indifference into hate.
