"Witch hunt" should stop

Greensburg — Dear Editor:

This is in response to the witch hunt going on at a local church.

The people that are upset about what the church teaches either don't read the Bible, or their feelings reflect upon their lifestyle.

The King James Bible is the infallible word of God. You either like it, or you don't like what God had his followers write down in scripture.

There are several scriptures in the Bible that tell us God hates sin.

In the Old Testament, one example was the tale of the cities of Sodom and Gomorra.

God does not the sinner, just the sin. This church does not teach hate, they are doing what God has told us to do: "Go and preach the word of God to all the land."

It is their right to teach the word of God to their children and any non-believers. Under our Constitution, which was written by God-fearing people, they have this right!

No one makes you go to church. It is your choice to believe or not to believe.

God is a just God. The Bible tells us several stories about God commanding his people to do what he wants them to do, and if they didn't, God punished them.

God told Moses to speak to the rock to bring forth water, but Moses instead hit the rock with his rod. God punished him by telling he would not get to cross over into the Promised Land.

One of the worst sins we can commit is to rebel against the known will of God in our lives. The sin of rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and idolatry (1 Samuel 15:23).

When God tugs at your heart strings and you receive the Holy Ghost, you will receive the truth, and the truth will set you free. Until then, you won't understand all of God's teachings.
