The following YouTuber submitted this comment today. He was present at the high school, when I preached the message that he is referring to.
Averi thank you for your public comment. Your comment has been approved, and the following is my response.
“Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful” (Proverbs 27:5-6).
I reviewed my video, and yes I remember you. The only reason I even spoke of “homosexuality” in that sermon, is because you interrupted my preaching, and asked me about homosexuality.
Averi you said, “Three years later, I am proof that your hateful message is not affecting my generation.”
No, you are “proof” that God promised His Word will never return void. Three years later (more accurately four) you are “proof” of Romans 1:18-32 (posted below for you). Perhaps you are the God hating, sin loving ‘reprobate’ that Romans 1 warns about. My message was the ‘truth in love.’ It appears that the only “hateful message” you are hearing, and the only “message” that you are accepting, is the unbiblical message of tolerance and acquiescence demonstrated by the many pastors and ‘professing’ Christians today. It is their sensual worldly love that is making you feel comfortable on your way to hellfire.
You said, “The only thing I learned that day, is to turn the other cheek to those who preach hatred…”
Averi you learned much that day. Again, Romans 1 speaks of your ‘knowledge,’ and how you are ‘suppressing the truth.’ Regarding what you “learned.” The Bible says that before a person is saved, that they were dead (nekrós) in their trespasses, and are unable to respond to the things of God, or turn the other cheek as mentioned in the Scriptures. Again, Romans 1 warns that the Lord turns the reprobates over to their debased mind.
You said, “You can’t brainwash us bill, we’re smarter than that.”
Averi you’re correct, I cannot brainwash you, nor was I trying to. I have not failed in “affecting” your “generation.” You are evidence that you have not experienced the salvific work of the Godhead. That the Father has not chosen you, nor drawn you to His Son. That His Son has not redeemed you from your sins, nor has He declared you righteous before the Father. That the Holy Spirit has not regenerated your depraved heart, nor renewed your mind (the brainwashing that you do need).
Averi I care for you enough, to warn you that you are already condemned, you’re under the wrath of God, and every time you sin, you are storing up more wrath for that grave Day of Judgment. The following is Romans 1:18-32.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:18-32).
Lastly. Averi please read my Gospel tract below. The message is clearer than what I attempted to preach that day.
