Enemies of the Gospel of Jesus Christ are once again publishing the names, addresses, and pictures of the saints in Denver who are allowing the theology of heaven to become biography at the gates of hell in their city.  As if this will intimidate them – not hardly!  Below is my response to their email.   

Dear Ken and Jo,

This is awesome!  Not the fact that you guys are all branded “haters, bigots, homophobes, and fundamentalist Christians,” but that you, “…let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and give praise to your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16.  You are all living parables testifying to the truth of that great Christian maxim first uttered by the saints in Denver, “Truth is hate to those who hate the truth!”

If you put Matthew 5:16 back into its context you will find that the Beatitudes of Jesus precede it.  If you put into practice the first seven Beatitudes, you can rest assured that you will be blessed with the eighth.  “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”  Matthew 5:11-12.

You are all magnificent in Jesus’ wonderful Name.  The world has branded you “haters” but Jesus has a better Word for you, “The world cannot hate you but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil.”  John 7:7.  It is the Jesus in you that the world hates so vehemently because you are convicting it of “…guilt in regard to sin, righteousness, and judgment…”  John 16:8.

O, they are singing praises to Almighty God in heaven because of your witness in Denver and I am singing them now right back to you.  


C.S. Lewis said it this way, “A true friend is one who knows the song in your heart and will sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”  Sometimes we just need to hear these words on this earth – “Well done thou good and faithful servant.”

In Christian love,
