- Louis Theroux is an award-winning presenter/documentary filmmaker with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). He is also one of the greatest workers of iniquity in the earth today, on par with Pontius Pilate in the days of Christ. Through the BBC, Theroux has an international platform with which to proclaim the unambiguous standards of God. Instead, he wields it for Satan and will be held accountable for being a faithless steward of the resources God so graciously provided him.
- He walked away knowing, and telling his audience, that we are kind people (apart from Pastor Phelps, who gave no quarter to Louis and his mocking) who are obedient to the standards written in the Scriptures. But in Louis’ view, WBC members are "cruel" for unambiguously proclaiming those standards, attributing our pickets to two things: (1) WBC pastor Fred Phelps is "mean," and (2) the Bible is "weird." Louis mocks the messengers of God, despises His words and misuses His prophets – but God has turned "The Most Hated Family in America" into an international preaching tool for WBC. The show has been translated into many languages and aired in countries all over the world, thus assisting WBC in the fulfillment of our Mark 16:15 duty: "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Amazing! Thank God for turning Louis’ hatred of Him into a huge door of utterance for His church!
- Louis dealt treacherously against the wife of his youth, Susanna Kleeman, divorcing her so he could live in adultery thereafter with Nancy Strang. Two young sons sprang from that adulterous relationship. Teaching their children to serve themselves, Louis and Nancy have broken their kids’ moral compasses on the altar of their lust and hatred of God. "Thou shalt not commit adultery" (Exodus 20:14).
- "I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing" (Hosea 8:12). "For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law" (Provebs 4:12). "Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it" (Jeremiah 6:19).
- Having cast aside the law of God, dismissing those beautiful, clear, righteous standards as "weird," Louis is left to wander in the gross, wicked darkness that is the human heart – and via his media platform, causes you to stumble in that darkness right along with him, as drunk men staggering around in your own vomit. "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9).
- That’s your bad, Louis! The glory of God is in His Church – the called-out assembly of believers who have a public testimony of obedience to the God of Eternity. "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen" (Eph. 3:20).
- Words have meaning, Louis – and the judgments of the God that created language will stand. God gave the standards for love and compassion; woe unto you (i.e. you’re going to Hell), because you’ve flipped those standards upside down! "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"(Isa. 5:20).
- Don’t worry about an angry Pastor Phelps; worry about the God you’ve enraged by maligning and disobeying His standards! "Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this lewdness above all thine abominations" (Eze. 16:43).
Manner of Life
"…what strange avenues the religious impulse can take you down. I think another part of the answer is that parts of the Christian Bible are pretty weird. There's a lot of weird stuff in there…"
"At the risk of sounding trite, life is a mystery. I'm not totally atheistic, but organised religion has no role in my life."
Every Tongue That Shall Rise Against Thee…
"...they have a right to hold their signs on street corners. I don't think they should be stopped from doing that. I still think it's a pretty weird thing to do and quite a horrible one…so antisocial, so strange, so futile and at its worst, so cruel…I think that the pastor is not a very nice person. I think he's an angry person who's twisted the Bible and picked and chosen verses that support his anger…"
