Hearing that Reverend Phelps andhie followers were going to gather together with their chants and posters etcetera at the funeral of a nine year old really ruffled my feathers. The loss of a child is one of the hardest things for any parent to go through and I am speaking from experience. How Christian or God Like is it to bring more negative into an already hard to deal with situation? It prompted me to listen to his reasonings so I did a search! I found a video speach he made it was Infuriating! Here is one I found
Here are my thoughts.
God is generous and kind. He does not kill his own children or influence his children to do so. Thou shalt not kill is one of the ten commandments. Love and pray for our enemies is also one of his instructions. So why would he appoint people to kill other people? Vengeance is his and so is judgment. Judge not lest ye be judged. How can true Christians believe they are following the scriptures by choosing only parts and pieces to justify their actions?
To plan a protest at a funeral for a child is infuriating! We are supposed to offer comfort to those who have suffered a loss not turn their loss into a media promotion for our beliefs.
God warned us of those that were influenced by the devil and would quote the scriptures to support their statements. Satan’s reign is almost to an end so it stands to reason that he would try harder to influence the multitudes.
A message to all Christians:Read the whole Bible and put it all together in completeness not just bits and pieces. Get your souls out of the box and go beyond that. Come to the real understanding. Isn’t God supposed to be Love?
I feel that Reverend Phelps is the Devils instrument to misguide and mislead as many people as possible, I wish his followers would think hard and pray for guidance and hold their council with God NOT Reverend Phelps.I pray their eyes are opened to the truth.
God is love and I see no love or forgiveness for sins on the Reverends part, He has made himself Gods Judge! He was not given that right none of us are. Judge not lest ye be judged. For so as you judge so too will you be judged. Keeping that in mind and considering Reverend Phelps and his teachings maybe God has appointed someone to knock off the Reverend for his sins. Isn’t that the Reverends theory? He’s not exempt from Gods wrath.He is human after all. Just a little food for thought.
Be careful what you preach! Be careful what you teach your children. What you show them and teach them influences what they become! Be careful! God is always watching!
