With BarbWire just over two days old, we’re already getting fan mail from the ever-“tolerant” left. From time-to-time we’ll be sharing the love with you. Just read some of the barbs in the “Comments & Barbs” section, and you’ll feel warm all over. It never ceases to amaze us how the self-described champions of “tolerance” and “diversity” always prove to be the most intolerant and hateful among us.
Take “Liberty Columbia’s” warning to BarbWire chief Matt Barber. It was emailed via the BarbWire contact page on Monday, February 10:
You are going to be legally tried in a court of law and sentenced to hang for your crimes against humanity Matt Barber and when that is done (and it will be done) the world will be a safer and better place having rid itself from a mentally diseased, waste of life, rabid barbarian Nazi whore like you.
Brave talk from this man, woman or some-combination-thereof. Note that he/she/he-she doesn’t even have the guts to give a real name.
There are many on the left that, like “Columbia,” would love to see Matt Barber and every other Bible-believing Christian fired, jailed or even executed. We’re not there yet, but anti-Christian hate is growing in popularity both at home and abroad.
In fact, BarbWire contributor and pastor Scott Lively is actually on trial right here in the good old U.S.A – home of the “free” and land of the brave – for speaking biblical truth about homosexual sin on foreign soil. The charge? You guessed it: “Crimes against humanity.” The trial is a bizarre cross between an Orwellian star chamber and a clownish kangaroo court. The case will eventually be tossed, but, in the meantime, the damage is done. Lively is smeared internationally and made to fight it out in court. It’s highly possible that Matt Barber – as well as other high-profile and outspoken Christ followers – will soon find themselves suffering a same or similar fate.
Jesus tells us: “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. …” (John 15:18-20)
For Christians, those times when the right people call us the wrong things are among those times we should “rejoice in our sufferings.”
Please pray for “Liberty Columbia” and for all of BarbWire’s new “progressive,” homosexualist and anti-Christian fans. God designed them each to know right from wrong. We can’t imagine the struggle they’re going through. Warring with God must be an incredibly exhausting endeavor.
