Welcome friends, to another edition of WBC Video News, where we examine world events in a Bible light, “[F]or after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1 Cor. 1:21).
Today, January 19, 2015 is yet another idolatrous national holiday in america, where Martin Luther King, Jr. is held up as still another idol to be worshipped. We of course cannot suffer this sin of idolatry upon you (Lev. 19:17), so we remind you that your flaunting of this man is a sin.
There are three basic things you should keep in mind when you hold this man up to be something of great moral significance and a bright shining example of standing for what is right in a world gone wrong. First, remember he was an adulterer. He routinely had women into his bed who were not Coretta Scott King, his wife. He had no honour or love for his wife in the most basic of ways, and he certainly did not regard her as the weaker vessel and honour her as he was scripturally commanded to do (1 Pet. 3:7). This wanton philandering casts a long, dark shadow over his ability to present a moral case for anything, since he himself was steeped in deeply sinful behavior from which he would not abstain (1 Pet 2:11). Second, remember that he was a false preacher. He preached that pernicious doctrine of universal salvation and the unconditional love of God for all mankind, which cannot be found in Scripture. Knowing his inability to rule his own house well, it is of no surprise that he could not keep the doctrines with which he was entrusted as a preacher. His adulterous and lascivious behavior, moreover, disqualified him as a preacher of the Gospel (1 Timothy 3:2). Third, remember that there are no fags in King’s dream. His message was one of racial equality and equal treatment based on race. No matter how desperately you want to re-write history and re-construct his words, he never spoke to fags as a group of people needing protection under the law or needing to be put on equal footing for reasons not already protected. He wasn’t out to get special laws for fags. It wasn’t until later that the fags detoured the freedom train through Sodom on the way to Selma.
No one can argue from a Bible-based point of view that treating members of every kindred, race, tongue and tribe equally isn’t scripturally sound, and this nation should hang its head in eternal shame for the way it has treated black people especially. Carrying that flag is not a reason to worship a man, however. He is the only individual for which there is a standing holiday in the US, and it has become forbidden now to say anything untoward about him. Here’s the reality. Martin Luther King, Jr. is in hell. By all evidence he was an unrepentant adulterous whoremonger who hated God, hated His word, and would not obey. God hates Martin Luther King, Jr., and you would do well to stop worshipping him. While he had a message of freedom and equality, that is not worth losing your soul over by worshiping him instead of God.
Speaking of freedom, it has been an interesting site to behold the last few days as the world has gone absolutely lose your mind crazy, falling all over each other trying to prove you’re the one who loves freedom the most. Of course I’m referencing the killings at the Charlie Hebdo magazine in France and the worldwide Je suis Charlie campaign.
Of course, we at WBC believe in freedom, where it aligns with God’s Word, and whole-heartedly agree that the cartoonists and editors of Charlie Hebdo have a right to publish cartoons of the pedophile Mohammad. They, as should all people, be able to express themselves in non-violent ways regardless of whether someone is offended by their cartoons, their words, or whatever. They are just words, and despite the psycho-babble of this generation, words do not hurt. They are words.
What is so interesting about this is the sudden interest you all seem to have in the freedom of peoples to express their political, religious, and social points of view without the threat of violence, state action, or other forms of retaliation being taken against them.
So, I have to ask, when will there be a millions strong Je suis WBC rally? Where was the concern for the rights of Westboro Baptist Church members to speak boldly on topics of great international interest when the United Kingdom of Britain and Ireland, without a hearing, without representation, without warning, banned several members of our church from stepping foot in the country, even while acknowledging we have no history of physical violence and the did so only for our words? Where was the outrage that such actions should be taken against people whose only crime is steadfastly defending the Bible in its entirety and warning people to flee from the destruction which will most certainly overtake them?
Where were the candlelight vigils and posters decrying the law Canada passed forbidding members of WBC from setting foot on their soil and speak our words? Where was the demand for justice when their customs officials stole our signs at the border and declared them “hate speech”?
Where is the outrage when masses of masked hoodlums surround our children and buffet them about violently while exercising their freedoms and peacefully warning their fellow citizens to stop sinning or face the wrath of God?
Where were all these world leaders, when a supposed court of justice let a mob of thugs in a court room issue a 10.9 million dollar judgment against a church for their beliefs? Where were the tears, the cries of injustice, and all this supposed solidarity against those who seek to snuff out freedom?
You hypocrites! You have no interest in freedom. You are as those Christ debunked in His day “[W]oe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation” (Matt. 23:14). Indeed. You make these long-winded speeches about the rights of all people to express their beliefs freely, to live free of oppression and fear for saying what they think is right and must needs be said. You hold in your right hand a placard with Je suis Charlie and in the left a placard that says “Kill the WBC”. Amazing, and we would not have it any other way, for the testimony it is.
Of course, freedom isn’t worth a tinker’s damn if you aren’t using it in the service of God. And all those who died in the Charlie Hebdo attack now know that, as they suffer in hell for not using the freedom and publishing tools they had to tell you all to repent or perish.
We will not be so foolish in the use of what freedoms we have, and so we warn you again, today, to obey, while you draw breath.
