My response to the hate.

I’m not certain which scenario draws more irrational and venomous reactions: Is it liberals when they refer to Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter or non-Christians talking about Jesus?

Since I’ve opined on both subjects this past week, I have received some of the most vile and degrading comments ever seen on this blog. Since I have the ability to moderate all incoming comments, I decide which ones get published. Outside of one commenter whom I banned in November, I typically allow all comments to come through regardless of them being complimentary or divisive.

But I am here right now to issue a warning to those who attempt to barrage me with your vitriol.

You know who you are. You know what you said. And while you believe you are posting anonymously, the fact of the matter is your identity is known.

You stepped way over the line with the hate-filled rhetoric you attempted to pass through.

So now you leave me with no choice.

Consider yourself warned.

What I’m about to convey should not be taken as a threat……but as a promise.


As I have said before, Jesus Christ is indeed my Lord and Savior. I am here on this earth to be a good ambassador for His kingdom.

Here is what He has told me through His Word:

"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
