We all have a choice to believe in something, I choose to believe in God!

     As Christians, it's fair to say that we want to do everything we can to be right in the eyes of the Lord. We don't want to make the same mistakes over and over and we don't want to spend our precious little time forcing Him to look away from us. We try not to go into places that the Holy Spirit can not come and feel comfortable. We try to see to it that our language is pleasing, our thoughts are relatively pure to the best of our abilities, and that our hearts remain steadfast on Him and His will for us. Sometimes things enter our lives and we're not sure if it's meant for us to have it until we talk to Him and await His word. If it's good it's good, if it's bad it's bad. My walk with God has been this way all along. I never say to Him, "I'm doing it my way because I think I'm Fred Astaire and you're going to have to accept that." On the contrary, it's more like, "Lord, is this how it's really supposed to be because if not, I'll need your help to remove this from my life, thoughts, heart, etc." 
     Then along comes the message of the Westboro Baptist Church. They seem, on the surface, to love God more than they love themselves and are proud to stand on street corners touting their message. Tonight I was using my powers of Google account to undo their message all over YouTube to the best of my finger's ability by jumping from video to video and commenting that they're liars and God would never condone their hate speech. I then started wondering if I was somehow the one that is wrong for not being in agreement with them. I really started questioning myself and if I was right with God. That's when He led me to this video which miraculously answered the questions I had and outright told me in the voice of God speaking to my heart that I am right with Him and that this is not His message to the world. He taught me within minutes that this is one small tiny church, unaffiliated with any other baptist church or organization in the country. He showed me that shockingly (and what most folks don't know about them) it's actually a family...one big hating family! In this video she admits that the church is started by her fathers and forefathers, who have effectively passed the hate gene down their family line to her and the other 80% of the church members that are also members of her family . Now, how profound is that? A church with it's message of a "fag hating God," is one family started years ago and still standing alone in their hate. So proficiently do they hate that they've managed to gain notoriety. Be not fooled folks, the devil is good at what he does when he's persistent and we have to work hard against this kind of hate and bigotry. It's not God's message to the world.
