Dear Chapman University
Orange, CA 92866
To the 20-year-old female student at Chapman University who did not sign her letter to Westboro Baptist Church. Thank you for writing.
Your letter expresses many fleshly ideas and thoughts. We do not see God in any of that discussion.
Psalm 10:4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
You speak after the wisdom of this world.
1 Corinthians 2:1-16 ¶ And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.¶ Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
At the end of the day, all mankind will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and give an account of him/herself. You spend your days in the wisdom of this world and ignore the things of eternity, which is where you are headed. What good will your failure to seek after God and eternal things do you in the hour when you are called to account?
2Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Finally, we implore you to fear God and keep His commandments, because that is the whole duty of man. Everything else is vanity and vexation of spirit. All the blah blah blah about statistics relating to who supports you in your proud sin and rebellion against God will be of ZERO value to you as you are tormented for eternity.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
Please read Luke 16 and begin at verse 18 and read to the end. Please read all of the Bible, work on it daily, as if your life depended upon it. It does.
Thank you for writing.
Your friends at Westboro Baptist Church
