Police Investigate Church After Poster Warning About Hell
Police have investigated a Baptist church over a poster which suggested non-believers would burn in Hell.
A 20-year-old passer-by complained the sign did not tally with the message "love thy neighbor."
The poster read: "If you think there is no God, you better be right" with a picture of burning flames below the words.
Pastor John Rose of Attleborough Baptist Church in Norfolk, said the poster was an attempt to get people to engage with the Christian message and he regretted that it had been interpreted as inciting hatred....
John UK wrote: There was a time when posters outside church buildings were always scripture, because the folks believed in the power of God's word, especially gospel words.
"For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Psalm 9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. 17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
2Thessalonians 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
Matthew 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
I think it's crazy that today's law enforcement would even pursue this type of phone call instead of telling the person to quit wasting their time. Reminds me of whats being lobbied for to force tolerance and allegiance by wrtiting new hate crimes into law to pacify the pro lifers and and give even more power to the sodomites
