Open Letter to the Person Protesting Verity Baptist Church
If you are hoping for me to name your name in this post so you’ll have something to brag about to your Sodomite friends, you will be disappointed. At this point, there’s no need to use our internet presence to give you any notoriety. It’s not the Christians that are interested in slandering and defaming people, but you and your friends. You won’t see us holding up signs down at the homo-friendly Methodist and Unitarian churches. We won’t photograph you or take down your license plate numbers. We are too busy raising our children and serving the Lord, and we don’t go looking for trouble.
We don’t have a lot of time to spend worrying about some burned out old queer bait with nothing better to do than try to recruit a gang of rejects to heckle people walking in and out of a church. You’re the one that is obsessed. We won’t be posting your name publicly, but you, an enemy of the Lord’s work, are on a lot of our prayer lists—and not in a good way.
It's laughable how many comments I’ve seen where people have threatened to get Pastor Jimenez fired for preaching on unpopular passages in the Bible. Independent Baptists are not part of a Baptist denomination such as the Southern Baptist Convention or the American Baptists. We are sent out by other independent Baptist churches, and each church is autonomous. The pastor is the leader of a biblical, New Testament Baptist church.
That said, a Baptist church is not a cult. People in these churches have minds of their own, so one of these days, you might mess with the wrong person. Harassing people you don’t know can be dangerous. Verity’s members probably don’t take kindly to a bunch of filthy faggots and bull-dykes stalking them week after week and photographing their children. More dangerous than pissing off some veteran with PTSD or tangling with someone in a prominent family, is inviting the wrath of God himself.
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews 10:31
You say in your comments that you aren’t a homosexual. If that’s the case, perhaps you have not yet been turned over to a reprobate mind and can still get saved. After all, Saul, who later became Paul, persecuted the church before his conversion. If that is the case, I pray that you will get saved before it is eternally too late.
“And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.” Acts 7:58-60
Somehow, I doubt that you are the next Apostle Paul, but if it is still possible for you to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, then let not this sin be laid to your charge. Maybe, since you keep listening to Pastor Jimenez’ sermons, something will sink in.
Whether you have a change of heart, encounter legal problems or drop dead, there are a lot of Christians praying that you will be stopped. I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes right now.
