There was a Christian bitch on campus the other day. I’m not sure how else to put it. She was stomping around Red Square and telling students how they were all going to hell. Her white tee shirt proclaimed the words “TRUST JESUS.” She was shouting so loudly that a few classes nearby were cancelled. There were a few students who got so perturbed by her presence that they stooped to her level and started shouting back.
“You’re all going to hell!” She would say.
“You’re a hypocrite! Jesus was only a man and you’re worth less than the shit in the guts of the fish that he gutted!” A student replied.
The screams were so loud that they could be heard on the other side of campus. It’s funny how this “Christian” woman was more conspicuous than Aron Carter was the day that he performed.
She was videotaping the whole thing. As if she was TRYING to get a rise out of the liberal population of Western Washington University. Maybe she’s going to use this material as food for the fodder of false witness to Christ.
The police responded to the scene and cited her for disturbing the peace. She retreated to her comfortable lawn chair she had sitting next to her videocamera. Representatives from the Campus Christian Fellowship were called to respond as well by being with her and listening to what she had to say.
I’m so glad that I wasn’t the person who had to sit and listen to her, and I give mad props to the guys who did. I’m just not sure what I would have said. Something like “you realize it’s a sin to tell other people that they’re going to hell? Since God according to the prophet Paul wants all to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth it is a sin to wish that God would send a person to Hell.”
What that lady was doing is wrong. She is going to drive people away from the Church, and she ultimately is providing the wrong image of Christianity for those students on this campus who still need to find God.
The gut-wrenching idea is that she is just the precursor to Brother Jed (George Edward Smock), who will be on campus soon. Brother Jed has never been warmly accepted here at this university. He’s been here many, many times, and each time the ensuing violence gets worse. I fear that if he keeps coming to this campus, he’s going to need an armed escort. We God-fearing Christians at this university can’t stomach the idea of another man passing out his own judgement upon us, especially those homosexuals and atheists amongst us.
But I must preach against violence. The only way that we, as a university, are going to win over people like Brother Jed and his female companion is to listen to what they have to say. Then, and only then, will there be peace. As long as we listen, and keep our discomforts to ourselves, then he will go home without accomplishing his task of conversion. Believe me, there are plenty of things that I wish I could do to the man. But I hold myself to a high standard of honor. Hopefully, the rest of this university can do the same the next few weeks.
Brother Jed usually comes during Dead Week or finals week, so be prepared for much shouting during this time.
