Son of Fred Phelps Turns on Church That Pickets Soldiers' Funerals
They are widely despised. The fringe fundamentalists from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas, have become infamous by picketing the funerals of U.S. soldiers. Their claim: that God is killing U.S. troops to punish American tolerance of homosexuals.
Now, the Westboro pickets are drawing new scorn from an unlikely source. Nate Phelps, a son of the church's founder, Fred Phelps, is speaking out against them in an exclusive "Nightline" interview.
"I think it's wrong, it's evil," Nate Phelps told "Nightline." "When they protest at people's funerals, they defy and deny everything that we consider decent and proper in our society."...
Ah, Fred, I am a traditional Christian! Now if you were the famous Fred Phelps, I would say you have been having some interesting effects. Apparently giving to the Red Cross and other charitable organization have gone up, and giving in the Westburo Baptist Church's name!, I expect this what will happen when "you" visit the Carolinas. Issac Bailey | Westboro is a test of faith. Not only that but the effect on the legal system has been amazine 6 AGs including Nebraska are going before the supreme Court about your behavior at funerals? Supreme Court to hear Fred Phelps' military funeral protests case. Fred Phelps has united Veterans like never before, I believe the VFW is having a hand in the Lance Cpl. Matthew A. Snyder Fund.
Fred and family are really making a name for themselves.
Returning to Freddy and his gang, there are some similarities between him and some of the KJV-only cult. Sometimes not for a grab for money but for a grab for power. Now, Riplinger and Ruckman have made great profits off of their peddling KJV-onlyism.
But for good reasons -- or bad there are certainly those who use the KJVonly or Theonomy to,
Mark 10 42 And calling them to Himself, Jesus said^ to them, "You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them. 43 "But it is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; 44 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all.---NASB
There appears to many church types who want fame and power even more than they want money.
Doug Kutilek wrote: In truth, a far stronger case can be made, employing this same kind of logic and evidence--and in fact even better logic and more convincing evidence--, that the textus receptus is a Roman Catholic Greek text, and the King James Version is a Roman Catholic Bible translation, while in contrast, revised Greek texts as well as major conservative Bible versions made since 1880 are non-Catholic by virtue of their differences from the textus receptus and KJV. This we shall now demonstrate . . .
It is said that the King James Onlyism movement was started by Catholics to divide Protestants. I think this is a good possibility, and you act like a Romish agent for just such a purpose!
Regarding "Jim Lincoln", The TRUE HISTORIC ENGLISH AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE SCRIPTURES (The KJV-B) Says:
"But There Were False Prophets Also Among The People, Even As There Shall Be False Teachers Among You, Who Privily Shall Bring In Damnable Heresies (Westcott & Hort Damnable Heresies), Even Denying The LORD That Bought Them, And Bring Upon Themselves SWIFT DESTRUCTION.
And Many Shall Follow Their Pernicious Ways; By Reason Of Whom The Way Of TRUTH (KJV-B TRUTH) Shall Be Evil Spoken Of.
And Through Coveteousness Shall They With Feigned Words Make Merchandise Of You: Whose JUDGEMENT NOW Of A Long Time LINGERETH NOT, And THEIR DAMNATION SLUMBERETH NOT.
For If GOD Spared NOT The Angels That Sinned, But Cast Them Down TO HELL, And Delivered Them Into Chains Of Darkness, To Be RESERVED UNTO JUDGEMENT;
And Spared NOT The Old World, But Saved Noah The Eighth Person, A Preacher Of Righteousness, Bring In The Flood Upon THE WORLD OF THE UNGODLY;...
But These, As Brute Beasts, MADE TO BE TAKEN AND DESTROYED, Speak Evil Of The Things That They Understand Not; AND SHALL PERISH IN THEIR OWN CORRUPTION;...
These Are Wells Without Water, Clouds That Are Carried With A Tempest, TO WHOM THE MIST OF DARKNESS IS RESERVED FOR EVER..." 2 PETER 2:1-22:
My, Tony, that keyboard you're using needs to be cleaned, besides other things, above it, that caplocks key is stuck again!
jpw, excellent comment! My pastor uses the NASB also,
While Tony is a lot of laughs, but we should return to the point of self-aggrandizement and that's what Freddy Phelps and his crew does with the obvious sin of Homosexuality.
Legalism is always bad in the Christian Church,
1 Timothy 1 6 For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to fruitless discussion, 7 wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions. 8 But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 9 realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers 10 and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,---NASB

Well, Deceived & Blinded "jpw", You & "Jim Lincoln" Make A PAIR--A Satanic-Vaticanist, Roman-"Catholic"-Cultic & FREEMASONIC-LUCIFERIAN PAIR !
"Jim Lincoln" Is NO True Historic Authorized Biblical-Literalist Judeo-Christian Fundamentalist--IN FACT HE NEEDS TO GET SAVED !
NO TRUE CHRISTIAN EVER CONDEMNS THE TRUE HISTORIC PRESERVED WORD OF GOD--LIKE "Jim Lincoln" DOES !
He's A Masked DEVIL Posting His NASBull---- PerVersion On Sermonaudio.
He Knows It, WE Know It & NOW The WHOLE WORLD Needs To Know It.
He's Been Sent By SATAN To:
1.CONFUSE True Christians Regarding
a.The TRUE English Bible (KJV-B)
b.The TRUE Church (The Sola-Escritura/Holy-Bible-Only CATHOLIC & UNIVERSAL CHURCH--Made Up Of ALL True Born-Again Judeo-Christians & Saints--[NOT THE SATANIC-VATICANIST ROMAN-"CATHOLIC"-CULT])
2.SHOVE Down OUR Throats SATAN'S NASBull---- ADULTERATED-ECUMENICAL "BIBLE" !
***"JIM LINCOLN" & HIS ILK ARE GOING STRAIGHT TO THE LAKE OF FIRE ! ! !
The pastor that we have known that was fluent in Greek and Hebrew, and read scripture directly from the original languages, who loved the Lord greatly and put Him in the center of all his teaching...........read mostly from the NASB when he was teaching non-Hebrew, English-speakers. Just sayin.
You are condemned by your message, Tony. I hope someday you do become a Christian, instead of a warmed-over Catholic.
Colossians 4 6 Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned, as it were, with salt, so that you may know how you should respond to each person. Titus 3 2 to malign no one, to be uncontentious, gentle, showing every consideration for all men.---NASB
Tony, if you bible doesn't say that in an understandable manner, you should throw it away.
! Corinthians 6 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.---NASB
Boycott Disney Now--No Matter What The Fool "Jim Lincoln" Says !
The TRUE Word Of God Says:
"By Mercy And Truth Iniquity Is Purged: And By The Fear Of The LORD Men Depart From Evil." Proverbs 16:6
The Fool & Apostate "Jim Lincoln" Has Been Admonished More Than Thrice That The NASB Which He Uses & Advocates Is A FALSE Translation Of The Original Autographs Of The Historic Authorized Holy Bible Scriptures--Yet He Remains Steadfast In His SIN Of Rebellion Against The True Word Of God !
"Jim Lincoln" Does Not Fear Almighty God--Nor Does He Fear The Ttue Word Of Almighty God !
And He Has No Plans Of Repenting Too In The Near Future !
Yes, the Bible does condemn Homosexuality. However it also condemns,
1 Cornithians 6
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. ---NASB.
So what if Freddy and his clan organization condemn homosexuality, so do Muslims, Muhammadans aren't Christians either.
After Reading abcnews.go.com's WHOLE Article, Of Which This Sermonaudio Article "Son Of Fred Phelps Turns On Church..." Is Based On, I'd Like To Say The Following:
#1.I Have A Personal Friend, Mr. Adrian Horien--Who Was One Of The Co-ordinators Of My Protest Against The Chicago Sodomite Parade Of 2004--Is A Former Member Of Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church.
#2.This abcnews.go Article States That:
a."Last weekend, Nate Phelps--now a husband and father--returned to Topeka, the featured speaker at a rally in support of gay rights."
b."Phelps returned to face the family--and church--he now loathes. He broke away more than 30 years ago."
c."In the Phelps household, Nate Phelps said,...(regarding)...their father's graphic depiction of the hell they faced if they did not behave. 'It was a very literal translation of a lake of fire,...The worm that eats on you that never dies, the wailing and gnashing of teeth. It was a literal and agonizing concept of hell.' "
#3.abcnews.go, Is Owned By DI$NEY--THE WORLD'$ LARGE$T MEDIA-ENTERTAINMENT CO. & PRO-SODOMITE BEAST Shoving The SICK-PERVERT-SAME-SEX Agenda "Down Our Throats"--Has An Axe To Grind Against THE HISTORIC AUTHORIZED HOLY BIBLE SCRIPTURES & ALL JUDEO-CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL-LITERALISTS !
Nate Phelps was already estranged from the family, and claims to be Fred's most-abused child. To learn more about him, search for the "Addicted to Hate" article on the web. He has already spoken out in "Addicted to Hate".
Unfortunately, paying attention to them isn't a good idea, because they're fueled by it.
