Westboro Baptists ignore clear Bible teaching to their peril

Westboro Baptists are very selective in their theology, which is distorted.  They ignore Bible commands, such as "do not repay evil with evil, insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing." 

The previous verse in 1 Peter 3 tells true Christians to "live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble."

On the day of judgement the Lord may say to them, "...whatever you did not do for the least of these (the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the person needing clothes, the sick and the prisoner) you did not do for Me."

Solemn words are also found in Matthew 7: 21-23.  

Westboro Baptists are spending huge amounts of money in travelling around the USA provoking people and making them swear and use foul language.  It is therefore causing people to sin, which God hates. WBC members clearly ignore the teaching of Romans 14:13 and 2 Corinthians 6:3.  They are not acting in love.   They are not bringing the true Gospel message, the good news of salvation and peace with God through the Lord Jesus Christ  God wants Christians to bless, be compassionate and bring love which covers a multitude of sins.  Westboro Baptist are conveniently disobeying that teaching.

There is strife and discord within the Phelps family.
I pray for their repentance.  May they seek the way of love and peace through Jesus Christ. Amen
