I was notified by a friend and reader of ’The Burning Bush’ that the following tweet had appeared on the internet.
That was mounted 2 hours ago (about 9.00 pm) and I just saw that the BB site has had over 1100 hits and the number is rising steadily!!
(1260 as I send out this email).
That is what you call ’shooting yourself in the foot’! I hope it really hurts 😊.
The article he is complaining about is:
May many benefit from this ‘advertising’ of the BB by this supporter of perversion.
He claims that what I wrote about him was ‘homophobic.
That is untrue if he is claiming that I was inciting hatred against those of his perverted persuasion.
However, I certainly would incite hatred against ‘sodomy’ of which Michael Palmer is a supporter.
In hating such a sin I am following in the footsteps of the Psalmist.
“Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way,” Psalm 119:104.
“Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies,” Psalm 139:21-22.
More importantly, I follow my Saviour Who said:
“But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate,” Revelation 2:14-15.
The Saviour ‘commends’ the hating of the doctrines of the ‘Nicolaitans’, a 1st century heretical sect.
There are things and practices which Christians are exhorted to hate by the Lord.
Be that as it may, whatever the Christian may feel about sodomy and related perversions, it is nothing to the expression of wrath that the Lord will manifest in that day referred to in Romans 1:18.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.”
(Written in haste!)
Sincerely in Christ’s name,
