I Recently Saw Louis Theroux’s Documentary On Your Church; I Have Some Follow-Up Questions

I hope that the Lord will have mercy upon you and you will desire to get to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and dwell there in peace, learning and seeking the Lord.

Dear Westboro Baptist Church,

I recently saw a documentary that was a bit unfair in the sense that it twisted and turned your faith to look like a negative thing, instead of giving a clear perspective. In short terms, it was a bit biased. I was not born or raised in the church. I am in the process of educating myself. Upon watching this documentary, I have some questions.

1) My biological father does not want anything to do with me. I have searched and pleaded to have him in my life as it has been heartbreaking growing up without one. With that said, he is Jewish. I think I understand the explanation of why Jews go to hell. I have never practiced Judaism. But I am half Russian Jewish by ethnicity. Does this mean I will go to hell?? Or is there still hope??

2) My parents were not married and my mother wasn’t exactly a good example of a parent. Her main focus in life was money, traveling, appearance, having expensive things, and having “fun,” while I was pawned off to nannies and babysitters. Being that I was created out of wedlock, does this mean I will go to hell?? Or is there still hope?? I ask the same question on the subject of being the child of two very vain, selfish, and irresponsible people. Does this mean I will be punished for their sins??

3) I noticed in the documentary that the women wore scarf-type coverings over their hair. Is this practice because of modesty, or is there another reasoning for that??

4) For someone trying to learn about God, faith, the Bible, and spirituality, what advice would you give to somebody educating themselves??

5) I have had an interest in the practice of law for some time now and am close to choosing where to continue my education. What advice would you give to someone entering law school and choosing what type of law they would like to focus their education on??

6) Being raised in a rough way, I see a psychiatrist. He thinks I should take medication for depression. Does your faith clash with taking medications on a daily basis?? I mean as far as anti-depressants and things for pain or anxiety that aren’t necessarily needed to physically survive? I assume that having to take medication daily medication for blood pressure is okay as it is needed for me to survive. Do you believe in the power of God’s will over medications for what would be considered mental illness??

7) The two family members I do have around are my grandmother, and an uncle with special needs. He was born in 1959, but his mental age is that of a 4-6 year old. He has never been formally diagnosed but some professionals would use the term “Mentally retarded”, while others would say he has a severe form of autism. He is also fully blind. I live next door to them and take care of them. He was raised Baptist. Despite his disabilities, he has a talent for music. He is able to play the piano, he has perfect pitch, and his memory recall is outstanding. With that said, if you ask him the number of any hymn, he can tell you. If you read him a bible verse, he can tell you what book, chapter, and verse it is. So while he does know the Bible, many would say that he is unable to accept Christ into his heart and be baptized because he is unable to truly understand what that means, much like a very young child would. Would you say he would go to Hell?? I’ve heard people talk about “age of accountability”, but I don’t know much about it. Another question would be, do you think he has the capability to accept Christ into his heart, or understand the concept of the sin that is going on in our world??

8) What does your faith think about adoption?? I have been thinking about it, from the viewpoint of taking an innocent child out of a bad situation and giving them a better life. I am still undecided, as I think I should sort myself out before thinking about raising another human being.

9) Is anybody welcome to attend a church service, or do you guys have restrictions in place for safety reasons, or even faith-based reasons??

10) I noticed a lot of talent in your family. My talent is along the lines of cross stitching and crocheting. Along with some classic dance training. How can I use my talents to serve God??

11) I saved the heaviest question until now. In April of 2013, I was hit over the head with an empty liquor bottle, abducted, taken to a hotel room where I was repeatedly beaten and raped for several hours. My rapist was never found. I haven’t been the same since. My first question would be: if this was a consequence of my parents sins or even sins of my own?? Secondly, I still have nightmares and fears. This is why my psychiatrist is insisting that I take medication for PTSD and anxiety. Despite me not being comfortable with relying on those medications, he continues to push it. Are these nightmares and PTSD also a consequence of my own sin?? Could God heal me without the use of those medications?? Or do I have to live with this type of fear for the rest of my life as a consequence of my own sin or the sins of my parents?? Which leads to my last question.

I apologize if my questions are too ignorant or selfish. I hope none of them were disrespectful or too personal as that was not my intention. I am new to this. I never had parents to show me the way, I had to learn lessons the hard way. I was inspired to learn about faith by a co-worker. I was sad during the holiday season that I did not have a mother or father to go visit during the holiday season while everyone else did. Trying to offer words of comfort, my co-worker told me that I do in fact have a Father that loves me, just not here on earth. That is why I am trying to learn.

I thank you for taking the time to read this, as I know you have more important things to do. If I do not get a response, I understand. I figured It was at least worth asking while I am trying to discover my own beliefs. Please know that I am coming from a place of respect and am not trying to start an argument or a debate. I ask them simply because your church is more educated about the Bible and God.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Mackenzie –

Answers in order of questions:

  1. I’m very sorry your dad has dealt treacherously against you.  So very sorry.  The state of your soul belongs exclusively to the Lord your God.  If He works in you to desire to seek Him, to serve Him, to love Him, to worship Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and to cleave only to Him, that is all that matters.  I sincerely hope that for you.
  2. See answer to #1 above.  Add this:  Your path was set by the Lord your God, and the awful behavior of parents and others, do not shorten the Arm of the Lord.  We are each one in HIS hands to save or to destroy.  Flesh has NO SAY in this matter.  So do not look to flesh for any good thing.  Sow to the spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, faith, gentleness, goodness, meekness, temperance, against these good things, there is nothing that can stand.  I would encourage you to forgive your parents, and to be very thankful for your lot and know that the Lord has done it.
  3. We cover our heads because that is what the Lord our God requires of us.  Consider these simple, plain words when Paul is discussing our conduct when the Church meets:

1 Corinthians 11:5  But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6  For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7  For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. 8  For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9  Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10  For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. 11  Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 12  For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. 13  Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? 14  Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15  But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. 16  But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

Take aways:  Women do not cut their hair and they cover their head when they are in public worship.  Men do not cover their heads, and they do not have long hair.  If you want to argue with us about that (verse 16) just be crystal clear, the church of the Lord Jesus Christ has no other custom than what I just said.

  1. I do not recommend that you try to self-educate.  That said, I recommend that you search the Scriptures daily and pray without ceasing.  Consider these words:

Psalm 27:4  One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

Romans 10:12 ¶  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. 13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! 16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? 17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. 18  But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

I hope that the Lord will have mercy upon you and you will desire to get to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and there dwell in peace, learning and seeking the Lord.

Pray without ceasing.  See #1 above.

  1. I do not know you or your circumstances, so I would not have a basis to advise you on this question.
  2. GOD ALONE SEARCHES THE HEART!  GOD ALONE is the God of all peace.  And in fact, God gives the obedient peace.  RUN from those witch doctors.  Scripture teaches us plainly and irrefutably that an integral component to the Revelation of Jesus Christ is a worldwide disposition where most — if not all — of mankind will be possessed with the co-occurring disorders of mental illness and substance abuse. There are way too many words in Scripture about this to tell you all, but consider these examples to make those points:

Jeremiah 17:10  I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

Revelation 9:21  Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Focus on the word SORCERIES.  That word comes from a Greek word 5331 φαρμακεία or pharmakeia (where we get our word Pharmacology) and see these additional words about that:

from 5332; n f  AV-sorcery 2, witchcraft 1; 3

1) the use or the administering of drugs

2) poisoning

3) sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry and fostered by it

4) metaph. the deceptions and seductions of idolatry

This is just the beginning of this examination of a tiny piece of the horrible sins of this nation, for which the Lord has promised that in defiling the very land, He will cause the very land to vomit out the inhabitants.  See Leviticus 26 for some more good language on that.

If you have a headache, take a Tylenol – not the same thing as Prozac at all.  Just think OPIOID and massive drug abuse and those that enable such.  It is a horrible curse of God that has tentacles running from one end of this earth to the other.  The Judge of all the earth WILL do right.  To be very clear, the witch doctors that call themselves messing in the heart and mind are all up in the middle of this mess.

For further edification, see this sermon preached by WBC on June 4, 2017: tinyurl.com/MentIllnessPDF

  1. It is very kind of you to take care of people in need.  But please consider these words of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Matthew 12:47  Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48  But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49  And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50  For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Luke 9:59  And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 60  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. 61  And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. 62  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

When you stand before the Lord our God, like we all must, your grandmother and your uncle will not stand with you.

I do not know your uncle, so I cannot fully understand that situation respecting your question about his mental state.  But what I do know is that your uncle cannot accept Christ into his heart, because NO HUMAN can accept Christ into their heart.  It is God that works in you, both to will and to do of HIS good pleasure.  See #1 above.  As for the state of your uncle’s soul, it is exclusively in the prerogative of the Lord your God.  You cannot do anything about that, except tell that man the truth about God.  And set an example of seeking, loving, living for the Lord, serving Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.

  1. Adoption is the balm!  Without adoption, I would have no hope.  Please read the book of Ruth.  Please read Romans 9 to 11.  The Gentiles were adopted into the good tree. We have adopted children at the Westboro Baptist Church.  That said … I cannot advise you about that, because I do not know your life circumstances.
  2. ALL are welcome at the Westboro Baptist Church.  All things are done decently and in order, and that is how the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ rolls.  😊
  3. We have only what the Lord our God loaned us, and my desire is to use all that is in my grasp or influence to serve the Lord my God and glorify His name.  I can only do that, if the Lord my God will permit.  The way you use all that you have to glorify God is to obey God and to serve Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and to minister to His people.

Colossians 1:26  Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27  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: 28  Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

Romans 15:25  But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.

Hebrews 6:10  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

1 Thessalonians 1:3  Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father.

  1. I am so very sorry about your trauma.  The answer to your question is:  YES!  God can heal you without drugs.  You have reached out to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.  I don’t know why God sent you with these questions, but I tell you plainly, since you did, I would not waste one day getting to the Church and putting my affairs in order so that I can be obedient to serve the Lord my God all the days of my life.

Your questions are not viewed as ignorant or selfish.  If any human asks the Lord for wisdom, He will give it, liberally, and he will not upbraid you for it.  We must do the same.  If you ask a sincere question, we will answer, but not endlessly or to doubtful disputation.

Thank you for writing.

Doesn’t Scripture Agree With Billy Graham That Righteous Non-Christians Get To Heaven, Too?

Dear Westboro Baptist Church,

Regarding the scripture: 

Acts 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Another way to interpret verse 12 is: “it’s true that people can only be saved through Jesus, but if someone is a good person but does not know Christ, then it might still be possible for that person to be saved, but then only through Christ’s mercy.”

I believe that Billy Graham was correct in saying that only God knows whether or not righteous non-Christians can be saved. Of course, you’re entitled to your opinion, as well.

Regards,

Brian.

 

Dear Brian,

We say with Jesus Christ at Matthew 22:29: “Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.”

You do not get to impose your ideas onto that passage. The whole body of Scripture must be brought into focus as all of Scripture agrees with itself in a beautiful symphony of plain words.

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:20-21)

“And [Jesus Christ] said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” (Mark 16:15-16)

Preach whose Gospel? Christ’s Gospel. If you don’t believe Christ’s Gospel, then you are damned.

“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:18-20)

You should not shorten the arm of God in His work of getting His word into the ears of His elect people, and His command that they hear and believe, with your silly notions about what you think is right, when it flies in the teeth of the plain words of Scripture.

Further, there is no righteousness outside of Christ. In fact, there are no good people, period!

“They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” (Romans 3:12)

If you do not have the righteousness of Christ, you have nothing.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)

Do Not Be Deceived: Billy Graham Lied On God For Money – Making Him A Spiritual Whore And Most Likely In Hell

Billy Graham was not a good and faithful servant. He was a wolf in sheep’s clothing, as our Savior warned us about. “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15-16)

 

 

 

 

 

This is a transcript of Westboro Baptist Church’s latest video production, which you can watch here: http://www.godhatesfags.com/video/videonews.html

Billy Graham, known as “America’s Pastor,” died on February 21, 2018, at the age of 99.  People across the world are now singing his praises, and a common theme is captured in a statement by Vice President Mike Pence:  “Billy Graham’s ministry for the gospel of Jesus Christ and his matchless voice changed the lives of millions.  We mourn his passing but I know with absolute certainty that today he heard those words, ‘well done good and faithful servant.’  Thank you Billy Graham.  God bless you.”  His dead body is on display in North Carolina, and on Wednesday, his body will be transported to Washington DC, to become only the 4th private citizen to ever lie in honor in the US Capital Rotunda.

If we knew nothing else about Billy Graham, the response to his death is a guarantee that he was a false prophet:

“Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” (Luke 6:22)

Billy Graham was not a good and faithful servant.  He was a wolf in sheep’s clothing, as our Savior warned us about.  “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15-16)

He no doubt spoke a lot of truth, just like all wolves in sheep’s clothing do, but the man preached a false gospel.  Gospel preaching is not about manipulating peoples’ emotions while you make an altar call with some maudlin hymn playing in the background.  It is not about having a person recite some saccharine-laced prayer and then telling them that now they are born again.  The gospel message is a command from the King of kings and Lord of lords to repent and believe on the Lord Jesus, and it is a thing that is only effectual if that King first performs a supernatural act in your heart.  Being born again is not something that you do…it is something that God does.

I will give 3 examples of Billy Graham’s lies.

Example #1:

Billy Graham taught that all men long for goodness, each of us has a hunger for God, and all you have to do is exercise your free will, make a decision for Christ, and allow Him to follow through with His plan that He has for your life.  This is so wrong on so many levels.  Men do not long for goodness.  Men do not hunger for God.  Men do not have a free will, and the decision on whether you are saved or not is not yours to make.  Listen.

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”  (Romans 3:10-12)

“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” (John 1:12-13)

“So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy… Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.” (Romans 9:16,18)

Example #2:

Billy Graham taught that God loves everyone and that Jesus died for everyone, and in fact, His love is so absolute that you don’t have to have ever even heard of Jesus Christ to be saved.  Listen:  God does not love everyone – He hated Esau (Romans 9:13).  Jesus did not die for everyone – the good shepherd giveth His life for the sheep, and only the sheep (John 10:11).  And if someone asks you if good Jews, Buddhists, Moslems, Hindus, and secular people can go to heaven, the correct answer is a resounding no!  The correct answer is “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12).  The correct answer is “the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thessalonians 1:7-8).  Billy Graham’s answer to that question was:  “Those are decisions only the Lord will make. It would be foolish for me to speculate on who will be there and who won’t … I don’t want to speculate about all that. I believe the love of God is absolute. He said he gave his son for the whole world, and I think he loves everybody regardless of what label they have.”

Example #3:

Billy Graham refused to preach against the sins of his day.  He called issues like abortion and sodomy “hot-button issues” and said that he wouldn’t talk about them because “it divides the audience.” The translation of that is “if I preach against specific sins, I’m going to upset people, and then they’ll stop coming to my crusades and filling my coffers with money.  So I’ll just speak in very generic terms about sins, so nobody will know what I’m talking about.”  The command is “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” (Isaiah 58:1) and “Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations” (Ezekiel 16:2).  You CANNOT preach the gospel unless you are clearly preaching against sin:  “Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.” (1 Timothy 1:9-11).

Westboro Baptist Church, therefore, will be preaching, Lord willing, at the funeral of Billy Graham on March 2, 2018, so that a little bit of truth might shine forth on the sea of lies currently encircling the globe.  Our prayer is that by the foolishness of our preaching, as described in 1 Corinthians 1, one of God’s sheep will be called forth.

Amen.

The Very Premise Of The Transgender Movement Seeks To Undo The Basic Principles Of Existence Put In Place By God

A person is what that person is.
A person is not what that person is not.

Dear WBC,

I am a junior in high school. I want to discuss a recent press release entitled “WBC to Picket Alex Gino and the March of Tranny Filth in Wichita, KS.” I believe there is a misleading sentence: “The tranny movement is based upon  deep seated hatred for God and His commandments.”

The National Center for Transgender Equality is the nation’s leading organization for transgender equality, and therefore could easily be considered the leading organization of the transgender rights movement in America. According to their mission statement, their organization is “devoted to ending discrimination and violence against transgender people through education and advocacy on national issues of importance to transgender people.” Nowhere within this mission statement is a hatred for God and His commandments mentioned, and action against violence and discrimination is supported within the Bible. This support is seen in:

Galatians 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

John 13:34  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Romans 14:13  Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

The transgender rights movement within the United States is not based upon a hatred for God or His commandments. It is based upon a desire for a society that does not discriminate on the basis of gender identity.

Kendall

 

Greetings Kendall,

At Westboro Baptist Church, we do not cater to anyone’s sins or their subjective sense of reality (i.e. their delusions that they are anything other than what God created them to be, and in fact are nothing). We recognize the fundamentals of the objective reality that God has put into place regarding the subject of your letter. Allow me to enumerate those fundamentals thusly:

A person is what that person is.

A person is not what that person is not.

Those are the rules. We did not make them. ‘Nowhere within this mission statement is a hatred for God and His commandments mentioned…’ On the contrary, the very premise of the transgender movement seeks to undo these basic principles of existence put in place and maintained by that one and only sovereign King who created all things after His own counsel, and by His own will, and for His own pleasure. You cannot change your chromosomes. God will not change your chromosomes. God does not care what you think you are. Nor should He. Therefore, we say your problem is not with our flier, but is, in fact, with God. Consider the scripture:

1 John 5:3  For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

Acts 17:24  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

25  Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

26  And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

27  That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us.

God determined the bounds of the habitations of all creation in the counsel halls of eternity before the world began.

From your letter:  ‘…action against violence and discrimination is supported within the Bible.’

Allow me to elucidate you regarding the nature of violence and discrimination as it pertains to transgenderism and the word of God. Pursuant to the scriptural reasoning stated above, transgenderism is violence: it is violence to God, and it discriminates against righteousness to sanitize and legitimize sin. The proper action to take against this violence (to the defense of anything lovely, or good, or righteous) is identified plainly in the word of God.

See? Your thinking is exactly backwards. But rejoice, for the Lord has given His word to help

Regarding Galatians 6:1 and John 13:34 which say:

Galatians 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

John 13:34  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Indeed, when one’s brother is caught in a sin, you that are spiritual restore him. But how? How do you restore him, and effectually love him as Christ loved us? That is to say:  how does the scripture define love?

Leviticus 19:17-18  17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. 18  Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

You restore your brother by way of sound, scriptural counsel. You do not cater to his sins, or encourage him in wrongdoing. You warn him that his sin is going to take him to Hell, and he needs to repent.

Finally, regarding Romans 13:14, which says:

Romans 14:13  Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

These words apparently do not mean what you say they mean. First: if you look at the surrounding context, this is clearly talking about censoriously condemning (judging) your brother based on things that are not, on their face, sinful. For instance:

Romans 14:2  For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. 3  Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

Lastly, encouraging outright sin against God is casting a stumblingblock in your brother’s way.

Thank you for writing.
