According to the cultic Westboro Baptist Church, God hates Australia and the evidence of this is the bushfires that have ravaged Victoria in recent weeks. No doubt they would also point to the floods as further evidence of God’s hatred for Australia. The message of the Westboro Baptist Church is a distortion of the Bible’s teaching and message, and is also a misrepresentation of the true church’s approach to society.
Sadly this church holds to Calvinistic doctrines (as I do), but this does not mean that all Calvinistic believers are of the same mind and practice as Westboro Baptist Church. They are a disgrace to the Doctrines of Grace.
