I told the young man that he hated G-d first before he hated me when the verse arose in my mind. He protested that there is no G-d. I asked him if there is no G-d, why do you bother what the sign says? It will be not my words nor me to judge you but the Almighty G-d. If you do not believe there is G-d who has given you the conscience and moral understanding, you can just move on and live your way. He refused to go on as he believe that he has the same rights to speak what he believes. I agreed but told him that he has no rights to insult others without cause, nor he has rights to abuse others' belief. I further told him if he believe that gay sex is moral, he can obtain a permit and hold a sign just like mine. He appeared not to listen to any suggestion or comment at all.
As the policemen did not show up during 15 minutes talking on the 911 phone call, I started to walking around the cross section to avoid him. After about 30 minutes abusive shouting or yelling at me, he walked to me and asked me whether I would be there next Sunday. I felt not and shared with him that we have been there every weekend from 2 - 4 PM or 5 PM since last August. He told me that he and his friends would come back next Sunday after he took some picture of my signage board.
Did I love not him when I tried to push him away from me? If it was, I pray that G-d knows my deep thought. I hope that this young man will come to awakening one day as his conscience was very strong. I am not a person who likes to compromise the Truth. I always feel that I am bold and strong and hard in many times and places. Some people or street friends told me the same that they have been felt about me. That has been my character. There are many ways to love and to help. while we are in the battle field, there is no time to give up what the Lord has revealed to us and ordered us: Tell the Truth. Obeying the command of the sending officer is what a soldier must do i and do it perfectly.
I shared this story to let the whole world know that it was not my speaking words or expression that provoked this gay man's hatred toward me, it has been the very moral conscience that our creator built in our hearts prevents us to be called immoral or evil. I have been carefully chosen the words that can avoid to express any judgement or hatred towards those who continue to do wrongly, and to reminder them their very acts will bring terrible judgement to them after their death. Even they choose not to believe that there is a judgement after death, I will affirm them that I know that there will be one that no one can escape. They must accept the consequence of their willful decisions. This is active love as parents discipline the wrong doing kid. This is true love that can pull a burning stick out of the fire and quench it, even many be burned or hurt. May the Lord have mercy over this young man.
O Lord Jesus Christ and my Father G-d in Heaven, who will see you face and receive your light in your presence? Who will face you when you reveal yourself upon the new earth? Your precious words become alive in me when you send me out there. "Let him who does wrong continue to do wrong, let him who is vile continue to be vile, let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy." (Revelation 22:11)
Now, we know that the end time is nigh. Thanks for your words and Love and protection over all of us who fear you, love you, and long for your coming. Amen.
