You may have heard about the Westboro Baptist Church in Wichita, Kansas, whose members picket at the funerals of soldiers. They believe that God is punishing our Nation because we have accepted ungodly lifestyles as normal, and so while they have nothing against the brave men and women who have given their lives for their country, they perversely celebrate their deaths as proof that God is angry with America. Now, they are certainly right that God’s word condemns certain activities as sinful. But they haven’t won anybody to their way of thinking because the way they communicate their message is so abhorrent. We do the cause of Christ no good when we stand firm and refuse to compromise in an angry, belligerent, hostile way. In fact, we harm the cause of Christ when we act that way.
