I have watched many of your pickets online, as I am in Canada and have yet to go to one. Always one question pops to mind. Why at funerals? I understand churches and places that promote gays, like Rainbow Center here in Winnipeg, but why at funerals? They are grieving at that time. Why not later or before it at the church it is being held? Or Cemetaries where soldiers are buried? I do believe in freedom to speak, and while I do not fully agree with your message or your way, I do believe you have the right to voice your opinion in the manner you see fit.

We preach outside the funerals (or more accurately called patriotic pep rallies) quite simply to warn the living. When someone dies it’s time to examine the way they lived their life. If you have volunteered to fight on behalf of a nation that is God’s enemy, it doesn’t look good for you. This nation worships those foolish young men and women and pretends they are heroes. Thereby teaching the rest of your young men and women that this is an acceptable way to live your life. Dying doesn’t make you a good person or wipe away your sins. There’s no scripture to support the notion to not speak ill of the dead. The Lord Jesus Christ said: Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. (Mt 8:22). Don’t be so obsessed with your pomp and ceremony, honoring the dead, etc. and focus on your duty to God.
Every single person that had any contact with the dead person should be mourning – mourning their sins and the blood that is on their hands for not warning them it would be sinful to join this nations armed forces and will send you to hell.
We have a job to do: Mr 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Ec 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. Are you keeping God’s commandments by not preaching his word?
