Fake Christians

It could be seen as humorous that the Westboro 'Baptists' are calling anybody a 'fake Christian' or a 'hypocrite', but that's exactly what they've decided to do regarding Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who refused to sign same-sex mirage licenses.

Their beef with her is that she's been married and divorced multiple times; thus, in their own hysterical words, "Her husband is Dwain Wallace, who she married when she was 18-years-old. It does not matter how many years you pile on! It was adultery at the beginning, adultery in the middle and it is indeed adultery today!"

Except that all that happened before she came to Christ.  And as anyone who's got a lick of Scriptural understanding knows, when you've come to Christ, everything you've done before is washed away, and you begin a new life, as Paul so eloquently put it in First Corinthians.

Following the Westboro-ite's bizarre logic – that your pre-conversion sins follow you post-conversion – then none of the apostles, none of the Jewish Christians; none of the Roman, Corinthian, Galatian, Ephesian, Philippian, or Colossian Christians was a 'true' Christian; neither were any of the church Fathers, nor is anyone who sinned before their conversion.

Which is patently false; Scripture proves it.

So, if the Westboro-ites are looking for 'hypocrites' and 'fake Christians', their best bet would be to take a look in a mirror.
