Hello Westboro Baptist Church,
I was wondering if you could explain to me: in the Bible it talks of people having lived to age 600 years. How can that be?
One last thing – if I had to visit Kansas would I be allowed to attend your church?
Dear friend –
Yes, the Bible is full of amazing information that is WAY more reliable than anything you will get in a text book! I could go on and on about why it is NO stretch of the imagination to KNOW that the people closest to the Garden of Eden (without the ravages of the curse and the effects of the flood) would live WAY longer than we. But how about you just remember these faithful words when you address yourself to your unbelief: “Let God be true and every man a liar!” Yes – that sums it up nicely I think!
Romans 3:3-4 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
I deleted your misguided statements about me and my fellow laborers, as they should never have escaped your mouth. Just note, it is ALL about God; this little flock of slaughter is HIS curious work, created by HIM and for HIS pleasure and for HIS glory!
Luke 17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
Colossians 1: 27-29 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.
Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Revelation 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Finally, YES: anyone is welcome to sit in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and our hope is that you would HEAR and BELIEVE. However, all of those matters reside in the exclusive prerogative of the Lord our God.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Ac ts3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
Thanks for writing.
