Pastor Josh Buice says that God hates Westboro Baptist Church. He bases his argument on Proverbs 6:16-19, which reads:
16 There are six things which the LORD hates,
Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
And hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that run rapidly to evil,
19 A false witness who utters lies,
And one who spreads strife among brothers.
He shows that Westboro meets every one of these characteristics. Read the rest here. (HT: Tim Challies)
I decline to call Phelp’s group a church, they have disfellowshipped themselves from believers by their repeated and unrepentant actions that do not represent what it means to follow Christ.

Maybe Brother Boice might want to consider what John Brown’s opinion was of those who held slaves along with those who today stand idly by while millions of babies are aborted instead of telling how much God hates the indifferent, unconcerned, and lukewarm. Really questionable as to whether God loves any of us in view of such evils.
