It is Real, But It's Not Truth
This is an interview of a church called Westboro Baptist Church. This is a church that focuses on the hate of God and how God is against sin. This church protests military funerals, Israel, gays and anyone that is against their view point. They think that God's judgment is more important than His love.
The reason I choose this is because in class we talked about how just because something is real does not mean it's truth. This is a great example of how a thread of truth can be so dangerous. This group understands God's judgment which is a real thing, but they take away His love which makes God sometime that is not God at all. They are giving non-Christians reasons to stay away from Christianity which is a dangerous thing.
As Christian Counselors we are called to know the truth and lead our clients to Christ and not away from Him. Our responsibility is to know about the person of Christ and the truths that are found in God's word. If we do not know about Christ, how can we lead others to Him? We must show God's love to our clients and not just His judgment because we are not just called to show them their sin, but inspire them to change into God's image.
