I asked two questions in the FUNDAMENTALIST board. I had a few replies and most were critical. I have been labeled a hate monger because I am a fundamentalist. My posts were deleted in Bible Study forum when I disagreed with the moderator on the study of the Children of Israel crossing the ...reed sea? I also got a private message to back off when I told a fellow that God gave up the homosexuals, Rom.1. Now my question to this board....remember it is the fundamental board, right? When someone speaks out agains sin on this board are they labeled a hater of sinners? I am a pastor, have been for a long time. I do not hate sinners. However I do preach against sin! So did Harold Sightler, Billy Kanoy, Maze Jackson, Billy Kelly, Andy Telford, Lehman Strauss, Bill Rice and John R. Rice who was mentioned on this board as one who would not be using the King James Bible today if he were alive. That is not true! These men I knew, I knew were they stood. John Rice was asked one time in a campmeeting to preach against smoking because there were some people on the camp ground smoking. Dr. Rice said he would pray about it. His first message in that meeting was on....tobacco. He told the people it was a sin to fill the temple of the Holy Spirit with tobacco smoke. Then he preached the message....on growing the wicked stuff. You see the very people that asked him to preach against it, grew it. As soon as he finished his message they asked him to go! That was in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. Why are we looked on a hate mongers because we preach against sin? I noted a few things in one post and it upset some folks on this forum! We are going to stand before Christ someday doesn't that mean anything to you people. Another question, Why do you always want to be living close to the world? Dancing, drinking, smoking is wordly traits, why would a christian want to be even close to the world when God tells us not to love the world? I guess John the Baptist had his head cut off for preaching against sin.....I guess we are in good company.
