John 16:1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. 2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.OK, but at least don't beat the poor kids or bash in the heads of homosexuals.
Calvin agreed & supported the execution of a heretic, and he will answer for that unless he repented, asked for forgiveness, & His help not to do that again.
As it is, I do not see why you would mention the bashing in the heads of homosexuals when the Leftist News Media would be reporting that if Christians were doing that or the Conservative Republicans. Excommunication 1 Corinthians 5th chapter or shunning of the individual 2 Thessalonians 3:1-15 is the only punishment for heretics that the N.T. Bible teaches. Jesus certainly taught this for those that have gone astray.
Matthew 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. 14 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
New Testament is way different than the Old Testament. Jesus taught us to love our enemies, but hardly to yield to their ideology nor their immorality.The Bible mandates both, but if you do either one and get caught, you will face felony charges. I might not be able to get people to think sensibly, but I can be part of the civilizing opposition to religion, and I am. We are winning no matter how much anybody insists on willful ignorance.
Not every believer is grounded in His words. Thanks to the evolution theory being taught in school, that false science has everyone looking at each other in assessing the weak & the vulnerable, for why bullying isn't going anywhere from our schools so many professing Christians are ashamed of the Bible believing the lies that they are just stories like the Biblical flood, but Peter referenced that to warn believers in 2 Peter 3:3-18 to be ready, endure to the end to be saved from what is coming on the earth after the rapture event when the Bridegroom comes.Did Moses pervert the scriptures? We are told he issued both mandates I just mentioned. Like it or not, we as a civilized society have gone beyond the Bible's barbarism.
So believers need His help to see the truth in His words, and the lie that the evolution theory is because it is not real science as macroevolution cannot be observed nor proven in the real world and the phenomenon of macroevolution cannot be observed in the natural world.. While Satan uses the world to hide the evidence of the global flood, many are asleep about His warnings of what is coming per Luke 17:26-37 and will not be ready as found abiding in Him & His words nor willing to go when they treasure their lives on earth more than Him when he Bridegroom comes..
