Mr. Phelps was trying to express the truth that we deserve to suffer as a nation because of our wickedness! And I tell you friend, Americas days of liberty and freedom are numbered! God won't be mocked! Judgment day is coming!!! Our time of reckoning is assuredly coming for our sinful idolatry, pride, indifference, drunkenness, abortion, pornography, rock and roll, drug abuse, public nudity, Hollywood adultery, Walt Disney pedophilia, shady business practices, dishonest banks, cruel imprisonment, lying politicians and every form of evil imaginable!!! Again, I don't agree with Pastor Phelps' cruel methods, but he would probably say that, “Drastic times call for drastic measures!” What is worse, holding up offensive signs that incite hate, or murdering precious little children in the womb? So you see, it's all truly a matter of perspective.
The Bible forewarns of coming “perilous (difficult to endure) times” in the last days, when men shall “become lovers of their own selves” (2nd Timothy 3:1-2). In other words, when men choose for themselves what is good and evil instead of God (as outlined in His Holy Word), then man's opinion becomes the law of the land. Since man's opinion keeps changing, so also do man's laws! And as men drift further and further away from a holy God
The same can be said about Pastor Jimenez' harsh comments in June about the Orlando killings at a homosexual nightclub. Which is worse, offending the public by expressing one's desire to see Leviticus 20:13 become a reality in 2016; or disobeying God by committing the sin of homosexuality, permit sodomites to get married, and God forbid, place adoptive children under their care? Your answer will solely depend upon your relationship with the Word of God. Leviticus 20:13, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
