New Hate Speech Laws will Not Tolerate Jesus is The Only Way
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

One of the main reasons why some many preachers, church leaders, and the general church body are going the way of the turncoat, is they can see what is coming. They can not handle ridicule, persecution, and the pressure. They are like a leaf blowing in the wind and the wind is satan blowing them to and fro in the wrong direction, and off the straight and narrow path. Its real easy to have the wind at your back or to walk down hill. Get face into the wind and it becomes harder to go forward. Walk up a steep incline and you expend more energy and the journey is harder. Its no difference in the spiritual realm. Its hard to stay on that straight path as there is so much out there trying to knock a true believer off of it.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
That path is what the Apostle Paul wrote and taught throughout the majority of the New Testament. If you preach and teach the true Gospel you are considered radical and deemed a Domestic Terrorist by the current laws on the books. However, If you stray in anyway just a little bit from Jesus being the only way to heaven and partake of worldly views, you are in false doctrine and you become an enemy of God!
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God
If you add anything such as works, baptism, speaking in tongues or any other requirement to be saved, you are wrong and best look to scripture IN WHOLE and stop listening to wolves in denominational sheep’s clothing! Oooop’s now your hating on me… shame on you!
I am not saying you should not do good works, be baptized or speak in tongues. You WILL do good works once your Born Again, but the works does not save you. You should be baptized after you are Born Again, but its not required to be saved. You should seek to be Baptized in the Holy Spirit with the EVIDENCE of speaking with other tongues, but that is not required to be saved. You must be Born Again to speak with other tongues, and if your not truly Born Again and speak in tongues, I question where its coming from!
Jesus said in Matthew 10:21 and Luke 12:53, that even your own family will be against you. Well so be it then. This is one case where blood is not thicker then water. Many family members will stand and support a drunkard, pervert, murderer, adulterer, etc, but will not stand beside one who is proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They fall silent and are like Peter when he denied Christ and don’t want people to know they are associated with a Jesus freak! Of course Peter realized what he had done, but still he did it.
Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Matthew 24:9-11 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Read all of Mark 13 to get a good idea what is fixing to take place here in America! Its already happening in MOST of the world right now!
Luke 1:71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;
Luke 6:22-23 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
Luke 6:27-28 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
John 7: The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
Its not us they hate, its the message of the Cross and Jesus that they Hate. Even some of those who profess to be Christian Hate the true message!
John 15:18 is the key scripture. Its not us as a person they hate, its who and what resides in the Born Again believer they hate because they are of their father the devil John 8:44. They being those in the Luciferian camp and that includes everyone that does not believe in Christ and Him only! There, now I am part of the persecuted Jesus only group. Galatians 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? I will practice Luke 6:23 and leap for Joy that I am hated for the sake of Jesus!
I think the above scriptures are enough to get the point across, there are more and you can do a search and do a study on it.
The Following comes from The Christian Post with one comment in it by me.

Pluralism, not gender and sexuality, will be the biggest issue that every evangelical Christian will face, according to one Presbyterian pastor.
Bryan Chapell warned that increasingly “it will be difficult to say in this culture that ‘Jesus is the only way.'”
“That will be interpreted as hate speech,” Chapell, senior pastor at Grace Presbyterian Church in Peoria, Illinois, said Wednesday at the 42nd PCA General Assembly in Houston.
Members of the PCA tout the motto: faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, obedient to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. The denomination was formed in 1973 by those who left the PCUS (Presbyterian Church in the U.S.) over the growing influence of liberalism.
Note that this my comment and not that of the author; this general assembly Voted to change its constitution TO Marriage being between “Two People” instead of between a man and a woman! Read the story.

Chapell joined a panel discussion on the past, present and future of the PCA on Wednesday in which participants recalled the beginnings of the church body, touched on the cultural and generational divide, and predicted future battles.
Gender and sexuality are major issues for the church, he recognized. The PCA, like other denominations, will likely continue to discuss and debate those topics. But they’re not the most pressing.
“If you continue to stand for ‘Christ alone’ in a culture that calls that bigotry, that will be the issue that presses us in the future,” Chapell, former chancellor of Covenant Theological Seminary, said.
Pluralism is the major enemy, he added, and Presbyterians must unite despite differences on smaller issues to fight that enemy.
He encouraged those in the PCA “not to listen to the gossip that parades as news that tries to make us enemies of one another” when debating theological positions but to remember who the real enemy is.
“We will disagree sometimes strenuously but the reality is we have learned to trust one another,” Chapell stated.
Roy Taylor, stated clerk of the PCA GA, agreed and gave out a similar warning.
“Our enemies are not those with whom we have some intramural disagreements in the PCA. Our enemies are not other Christians from other denominations,” Taylor said. “As our culture continues to degenerate, we would be well served to understand that our friends are our brothers and sisters in Christ and we will begin to move forward against the true enemies of the Gospel.”
The true enemies, he said, are the world, the flesh and the devil.
