False teachers vs. false teachers — this should be fun!

False teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie has one of those even-a-blind-squirrel-finds-a-nut-now-and-then moments when he rightly criticizes preachers who wish violence upon gays, such as Democrat Fred Phelps* 

Via Killing Off Homosexuals And Other Anti-Christian Teachings.

All Christians – regardless of whether or not we support gay marriage (I strongly do) – must condemn hate speech from pastors and denominations where this occurs are obligated to hold their clergy accountable – taking away their status as ordained clergy. Because let’s be clear: these hateful men are not preaching the word of God.

The problem is that this is just one type of false teacher — and a proven liar at that — criticizing another type of false teacher.  Chuck is blind to the word of God.  Just listen to any of his sermons and you can know that.  But he rightly notes that those other preachers are wrong.  Chuck just lives out his false dichotomy, that you are either like Chuck or like the other type of haters.

If you really love gays, you won’t lie to them and tell them that there aren’t serious spiritual, emotional and physical consequences to their behavior.  And you also won’t wish that they’d be killed.  You’ll tell them the truth, and you’ll welcome them in your church — provided that they aren’t their to rebel against God’s word but to be changed by it.

The truth is out there, but you won’t find it with Chuck or with preachers like Democrat Fred Phelps*.

* Did I mention that Fred Phelps is a Democrat, just like Chuck Currie?  Because he is.
