Pastor in NC Telling Congregates to Beat Their Children

I was shown this website by a gay rights advocate on Facebook and couldn’t believe what I was seeing!

If you look at the first article, at the bottom it has the video of this Pastor preaching to his congregation about beating your children if they show a “limp wrist” and that you need to stop that because a boy is a boy and a girl is a girl. 

Now, I’m all for freedom of speech and he should have the right to say these things, but as a Pastor and telling his congregation that these are the words of God is so difficult to even comprehend. I’ve seen so many stories about pastors saying their own opinions as if they were actually coming from God, I’ve seen this personally as well.

Now I’m not saying that you shouldn’t trust your church or your pastor/preacher/minister/whatever they may be called. But you, as a person and individual, need to decide what is right in your heart, follow what you believe God would want you to do, remember that everyone has their own interpretations and definitions for things.

I just know that God is supposed to love ALL of his children and wants them to be happy. All of us have to make up our own minds about what they think is right but you shouldn’t do what this Pastor is doing, telling congregates to hit their children if they appear to be gay. That’s not right.
