Why are you shocked to read this?
God hates cowards. That’s why they end up on the lower rung of hell and they’re listed first in St. John’s description below. And that’s where many of our religious leaders and politicians are going to end up.
“But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” ( Revelation 21:8)
When you can’t even defend the innocence of children, then you’re good for nothing except to be thrown into hell.
