The Speech

"Woe to you, liberals and progressives, hypocrites! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in people's faces. For you neither enter yourselves nor allow those who would enter to go in.

"Woe to you, representatives and senators, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to defend human rights, but you deny the unborn those same rights, you make yourselves twice as much a child of hell.

"Woe to you, blind religious leaders, who say, 'If anyone goes to church, it is nothing, but if anyone takes money from the rich to give to the poor, he is a champion of social justice.' You blind fools! For which is greater, the church that Christ established or the love of money that He condemned? And you say, 'If anyone trusts in God's Word, it is nothing, but if anyone trusts in science, he is wise.' You blind men! For which is greater, that which God speaks or a human effort to figure out what God has done?

"Woe to you, self-righteous Social Justice Warriors, hypocrites! For you demand that the government take from the rich to give to the poor, and have neglected the truth: that charity is a personal act from the heart. Giving ought not be coerced. You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!

"Woe to you, false preachers, hypocrites! For you give the appearance of holiness and reverence, but inside you are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind preacher! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.

"Woe to you, religious left, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people's bones and all uncleanness. So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.

"Woe to you, LGBTX advocates, hypocrites! For you sing the praises of 'equal rights' and 'tolerance', saying, 'If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in stripping rights from others.' Thus you witness against yourselves that you are sons of your fathers as you strip the rights from those who disagree with you and refuse to tolerate them. Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell?"
Yeah, pretty harsh ... but you know the One who made the template, right?

I'd recognize 4th John anywhere. He certainly liked to pull from Hezekiah.

Stan said...

Oh, very close. That's 3rd Peter, but thanks for playing. (And he did love to quote from the book of Hezekiah, didn't he?)

David said...

No no, that's clearly 4th John, completely matches his prose, not Peter's.
