Actual email questions from emails to our website requiring a response are summarized above and the responses are this:
Baptism Question Answered: Westboro Baptist Church only knows of one Church of the Lord Jesus Christ that He has placed in Topeka, KS. If there is a sincere soul in this country that is moved by God to seek Him and is given the gift of repentance, there is yet a place where that person may be baptized and may seek daily to mortify the flesh and to serve God acceptably with reverence and Godly fear. We have such souls that abide with us. One coming as far away as the UK. The tenor of your question is to shorten the arm of the Lord our God who has all power in heaven and earth. He is not willing that any of His sheep should perish, but each of them will come to repentance, so you don’t need to worry one bit about them. That is God’s business. Your business is to fear and obey God. That is the whole duty of man. This creation belongs to God in every whit, and He who created is able to keep to the end that they have been appointed.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any (of the us-ward) should perish, but that all (of the us-ward) should come to repentance. Hebrews 12:28-29 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire. Ecc 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 evil. 2Pe 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 1Ti 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 2Ti 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
The “Thank God For” Question Answered: We have a duty to Thank God for All Things. That includes the things that we might personally find repugnant because if we rest upon OUR morals we are lost before we get up of our lazy, worthless backsides. Put more clearly: Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Eph 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Election Question Answered: God will NOT EVER, as in NEVER “to infinity and beyond” cast off one of His elect.
However, He will reveal the heart of an unbeliever. Here is some scripture: 2 Peter 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: Hebrews 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. There are many more words that agree with these – and also I would read the parable of the seed and the Sower at Matthew 13 wherein is discussed the kinds of ground the seed falls into. One of those categories are the people that seem to love God and seek Him and then – offenses come (eg they want a spouse and they have no godly patience and no will to seek it) and because as the scripture saith, they have no root within themselves, they wither spiritually and die. They were never one of God’s elect, but they seemed to be. They at first received the Word of God with joy, but the offenses came and that was it for them. It is indeed very sad, until you consider the joy of the Lord in all things.
