It appears as if the members of Providence Road Baptist Church are standing behind Pastor Charles Worley.
Geneva Sims said she’s been listening to Worley preach the Gospel since the 1970s. She wasn’t surprised by the 71-year-old pastor’s now infamous sermon. In fact, she supports him and his message.
“He had every right to say what he said about putting them in a pen and giving them food,” said Sims. “The Bible says they are worthy of death. He is preaching God’s word.”
Good grief. Ms. Simms, perhaps you should read the part where St. Paul says that all have sinned (Romans 3:23) and the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). Jesus also said that “Whoever hasn’t sinned should throw the first stone.” (John 8:7)
Providence Road Baptist Church member Stacey Pritchard agreed.
“Sometimes you’ve got to be scared straight,” she explained. “He is trying to save those people from Hell.”
Excuse me, where the hell in the Bible does it talk about being “scared straight?” Oh, wait, it DOESN’T!
Seems to me this “Pastor” and his “Congregation” need to learn a few things about the Gospel.
