God is Love not God is Hate! Where does Westboro Church get their doctrine from to teach hate? Yes God hates sin but not the person. “Hate the evil, but love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the Lord God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph,” Amos 5:15.
Jesus Christ said in His sermon on the mount; “43 You have heard that it has been said, You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy. 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which spitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That you may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love them which love you, what reward have you? Do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if you salute your brothers only, what do you more than others? Do not even the publicans so? 48 Be you therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect,” Matthew 5:43-48.
Now we see how the Lord had said to hate evil and love the good. The question is the good of what? Is it what people do or what God does through people? I believe the latter why; it is God who can make an evil person change his or her mind to do what is right. We do not know who is to be saved or to be lost let God be that judge but it is our job to love people in order to save some! This is what Jesus Christ was saying in the text above in Matthew 5: 43-48. Read it again and ask yourself is the Westboro Church in the right? Remember what Paul did when he was Saul? Yes, he was a murderer and God took him into His Kingdom for a purpose.
God also has His plans for this nation and it is up to God how to judge us as a whole! I believe He has His hands on this country for a purpose, what do you believe?
I say the Church of Jesus Christ needs to learn and start practicing how to love and how to win people over to proselyte them into Christianity!
