Is it hate to tell a child:
- Fire will burn?
- Walking in traffic can kill?
- No vegetables cause bad health?
- Cocaine will destroy your mind?
- Rebelling against God will send you to hell?
No, it is not hate to tell them these truths. Truth is not always pleasant,
but we need to know it to avoid disaster in our lives.
But truth today is becoming the same as when Pontius Pilate scorned Jesus
with the question: "What is truth?" Truth today is whatever you want
it to be. Everyone is doing "that which is right in his own eyes. And
woe unto anyone who gets in his way.
When someone stands up and says, "That's wrong!" the modern response is:
"Sez you! It's right for me. So don't preach to me!"
Modern man no longer considers God's opinion important. Therefore, anything

became another fallen hero for the pro-abortion promoters of the anti-hate
If the pressure groups succeed in getting laws that punish anyone who speaks
out against sin, America's days of free speech will soon be over. Those
of us who declare God's judgment against sin will be tried for promoting
"intolerance" and "discrimination" by inciting "hate" against those who
When the American culture gave it's blessing to promiscuity then it had to
figure what to do with all the unwanted babies. Abortion became the legalized
solution. When promiscuity became okay, the next level of sexual perversion
was let out of the closet. It is now screaming for full marriage rights.
We have gone so far from God's loving plan. We are dangerously close to
losing our precious freedom to declare God's judgment on man's sins. We
must not let our lawmakers cross that line or America will follow the other
civilizations in history, that have fallen because of internal moral decay.
