gays being killed in Middle East
Hey you guys,
If Fred Phelps had his way, we would be killed in the most severe way in this country. We are deluding ourselves if we think it can't happen in this country. Pardon me for sounding alarmist, but we are doomed to repeat history if we don't learn from it. Can we say Pre-WW2 German Jews?
These Islamic fundamentalists are the same as Phelps, Falwell, Dobson, and Robertson with different clothes on.
It strikes me as peculiarly funny that people like these guys stick to the letter of the law like it is salvation itself, when all of the OT points to the fact that the law is death, and there is no way to make yourself acceptable to God. That was the whole point of the law, to show us we needed a Savior because we CAN'T DO IT OURSELVES. Jesus was the payment for our sinful humanity and all the laws we hide behind don't save us. His death on the cross saved us because the law and our faulty adherence to it couldn't save us. But we cling to it like Jesus' sacrifice meant nothing. It is a shabby fortress we hide behind because we are scared to death of the freedom of grace. We don't understand it and we don't live it in this country.
