a challenge from a "born again"

To heterosexual liberals, libertarians and atheists. It is predictable that you who read this may be so offended by the first question that you will flee from the rest of the post. I think some will have fled already. Be brave, read on. (Also to Christians challenged by the events of our day, who may as I do often want to flee to another world.)

A challenge to heterosexual liberals, libertarians and atheists:

Will you love the lesbian that recruits your daughter to the LGBTQ ranks? Or the “gay” man who sodomizes your 10 year old son?

Will you love the HETEROSEXUAL pervert who gets into your 10 year olds underwear? Will YOU love them?

We christians will love them, if WE are true to our God. But we will hate what they did to our children. This ought to make complete sense to anyone.

We do know how much hated christians are for trying to recruit the children of liberals and atheists. That used to be called child evangelism and is I fear very rare now as people keep evangelists away from their children. That is their right. REPEAT:  That is their right. Christians and Christ are so hated by some parents that they raise their children into young adults who hate us and Christ simply for naming Him as the God who IS!

We preach today at our own risk believing God’s way to lead to everlasting life.

I don't hate you Christ deniers. But I don't want to believe what you believe or live as that would require. THAT is what Hitler wanted of his white German/Aryan race, that they should believe and THINK and live as He did. When those Germans started to follow him as a god the Holocaust was the result of their worship (which lifted him to power). True christians don't want you to think and live as they do, they simply and only pray you will think and live as Jesus did.

The Christ denier will eventually discover that he/she hates Christ and Christians, all the while committing hypocrisy. They Christ followers to love them AND APPROVE the sin(s) they commit. Those sins are destroying their souls and bodies! It is hypocrisy because they approve for themselves what they condemn in us. !!! 

As a Christian I love you, but not as you would have me love you. I love you as God does. He loved you enough to send Jesus to save you, to lift you out from the universal condemnation of all mankind, for ALL HAVE sinned. He loves you enough to send you preachers to announce to you His Mercy and Grace. But you insist on JUSTICE. God’s justice is very severe. But it is JUST and correct in a way the justice you seek is not. I fear the Christ denier wants justice with vengeance, and that is something no man may rightly have. We are not ourselves just (righteous) enough to execute vengeance. We are to partial to our own desires and our own friends. We exclude many from the mercy we could give because of things we are also guilty of! Read Romans Ch. 2 if you dare. That's a dare for believers too !!!

As hard as men and women try, the justice of human courts is imperfect. God’s justice is FLAWLESS. All have sinned and the payment for sin is that all die. And after that another final judgment may ensue.

God told the Jews:
“… I have hewed them by the prophets (preachers); I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth. For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me. (Hosea 6:5-7 KJV)
Jesus God the Son, told them too: 
And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, “They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” (Matthew 9:11-13 KJV)
And on another occasion:
At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat. But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day. But he said unto them, “Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him; How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests? Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless? But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple. But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.” (Matthew 12:1-8 KJV)

Jesus craves that men and women learn MERCY, but they crave sacrifice (the fines the law requires sinners pay). "MAKE HIM PAY for that," they cry. And still we want Justice??? If we do someone will surely cry about us, "MAKE THEM PAY." We need to hear again this God’s word, which my Bible subtitles: What Does the Lord Require?

“Wherewith shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?” (Micah 6:6-8 KJV)

We are to DO justly. If we all did, there would be no craving among us for vengeance. Or are not our cries for justice really for vengeance? We are to LOVE mercy, and if we did and we were merciful, we would receive it from each other AND FROM God !!! If we DO justly and LOVE mercy then we WILL BE ABLE to walk humbly before our God !!!!

"Vengeance is MINE,"  saith the Lord. "I WILL repay."
