Q. Why do you hate people so much?
A. We don’t hate anyone. We love our neighbor as ourselves (Matt. 22:39), and we do to them as we would have them do to us (Luke 6:31). If we were wrong, we’d want our neighbors to tell us, so that’s what we do in Christian love. Are we people’s enemies because we tell them the truth (Gal. 4:16)?
Q. Why can’t you realize that some verses of the Bible make sense only when interpreted correctly?
A. Because that isn’t true. Where does it say in the Bible that we’re supposed to interpret things because the literal meaning doesn’t make sense? Nowhere, that’s where! The Bible says that all scripture is given by inspiration of God, not that your “correct interpretation” of it is (2 Tim. 3:16). If you have a problem with the literal reading of Scripture, God doesn’t have the problem; you do.
Besides, where does it end? If you “reinterpret” those verses of the Bible that cramp your style, what keeps homosexuals from doing the same thing?
We have explained the matter in greater depth here.
Q. Is this site supposed to be some sort of joke?
A. Why do you liberal secular humanists automatically assume that anything that quotes the Bible as it actually is, rather than as you wish it were, must be a joke? This ministry is based solidly on the timeless teachings of the King James Bible. If you call this ministry a joke, you must think that the Holy Bible is a joke, too.
Q. You people don't actually advocate beating children, do you?
A. We're not the ones advocating anything. The Bible says what it says on the subject in no uncertain terms (Prov. 22:15, Prov. 23:13-14). If you have a quarrel with that, then you have a quarrel with the Bible, not with us.
Q. How can you people believe some of that stuff, when it contradicts science and your senses?
A. We can because we don't exalt science or our own fallible senses over the perfect Word of God. Science has taught lots of wrong things through history; similarly, lots of people believe lots of wrong things based on what their senses tell them. The only sure standard is the Holy Bible; if science and your senses contradict the Bible, then it must be science and your senses that are wrong.
Besides, where does it end? If you don't believe every word of the Bible, why believe any of it? Don't homosexuals also appeal to science and their senses, over the Bible, to justify their lifestyle choice?
Q. Don't you people realize that this country was founded by Deists and freethinkers rather than devout Protestants who believed in the KJV and The Fundamentals?
A. Sorry, but this country was founded by Christian conservatives. Just ask any Christian conservative, and he'll tell you so. Are you saying that Christian conservative sources cannot be trusted unless they're backed up by a secular source with a clear liberal, atheist agenda?
