God Guns Dogs

You’d be amazed how many dogfighters believe God exists, wear a cross and end social media posts with “god guns dogs” but search Google for, “What happens after you die?” This is what happens when dogfighters die:

As Got Questions? says, “A person can seem like a Christian in the eyes of other people, yet still be an ‘evildoer’ in God’s sight and sent away from His presence.”

Five Reasons Dogfighters Go to Hell When They Die

One: God Created Humans to Do Good Works

“Only those who do the Father’s will and who are known of God will enter heaven,” Got Questions? says. “So, what is the Father’s will? … Jesus answered, ‘The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent’ (John 6:28–29). … Those who are born again by faith in Christ will produce good works to the glory of God (Ephesians 2:10). When Jesus said, ‘I never knew you,’ to the feigned disciples, He meant that He never recognized them as His true disciples or His friends. He never had anything in common with them nor approved of them. They were no relations of His (Mark 3:34–35). Christ did not dwell in their hearts (Ephesians 3:17), nor did they have His mind (1 Corinthians 2:16). In all these ways and more, Jesus never knew them. Note that Jesus is not breaking off the relationship here — there was never a relationship to break off. Despite their high-sounding words and showy displays of religious fervor, they had no intimacy with Christ.”

 “God takes no delight in sending people to hell,” Got Questions? says. “But those who are told to depart have rejected God’s eternal purpose and plan for their lives (Luke 7:30). They have spurned the light of the gospel, choosing the darkness instead, because their deeds were evil (John 3:19).” 

Two: The Bible Says Christians Are to Be Imitators of God and “the Love of Money Is the Root of All Kinds of Evil”

Would Jesus train pitbulls to kill other animals and each other to win money? Easier question: Considering you’ve likely seen many pictures of Jesus like this:

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep.” – John 10:11-13

Would Jesus would treat cats and kittens like this?

Or would he bet on which one survived against a pitbull the longest?

“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)

The answer is obvious, but if you need help, consider the fact a Christian blogger with cats is the person who caught Cleveland dogfighter Angelo McCoy using Craigslist to obtain cats and kittens his pitbulls could kill.

Nothing…just…happens.

God created animals before he created Adam; he cares about animals and wouldn’t have given cats the ability to heal themselves and their human caretakers if he’d intended for dogfighters to use them as “bait.” People like to throw around “God is love” to suit their own purposes these days, but God is also a god of wrath. Read the story of Noah. He gave humans free will, but he only tolerates their wickedness for so long. Often, as in the story of David and Goliath, God raises someone up to take the wicked person down.

Three: Dogfighters Do a Lot of Things God Hates

“There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him,” the Bible says.

  • haughty eyes;
  • a lying tongue;
  • hands that shed innocent blood;
  • a heart that devises wicked schemes;
  • feet that are quick to rush into evil;
  • a false witness who pours out lies; and
  • a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

Even the people who collect bait animals from people on Craigslist, Facebook and other websites/social media apps, promising to give those animals a good home, are guilty of four out of seven things God hates. And everyone knows dogfighters are bad for communities because “dogfighting is almost inseparable from drugs, illegal weapons, illegal gambling, and many other activities that the public demands be addressed by police,” per the U.S. Department of Justice.

Four: The Bible Tells Parents to “Train up a Child in the Way He Should Go [So That] Even When He Is Old He Will Not Depart from It” … and Dogfighters Are Taking Children to Dogfights

Pretty terrible parenting.

Five: God Cares About Children, and It’s Dogfighters’ Fault They’re Being Disfigured and Killed by Pitbulls

As Got Questions? says, “[C]hildren have a special place in God’s heart and anyone who harms a child is inviting God’s wrath upon himself.” Dogfighters breed bloodlines that they know will win a fight; dogfighters inject pitbulls with steroids; dogfighters train those pitbulls to hang by their teeth to strengthen their jaws and if you scroll through the National Pit Bull Victim database, you’ll see countless babies and children that dogfighters got mauled. Many children have lost their mother because of pitbull attacks. Make no mistake: Dogfighters are going to hell when they die.

Dogfighters’ fault.

Dogfighters have the ability to repent — to apologize to God, ask for forgiveness and make a 180-degree turn from their present lifestyle. If they don’t? “Those who are [told to] depart from the presence of the Lord will not partake of the blessings of the kingdom,” Got Questions? says. “Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood” (Revelation 22:15). They will be cast ‘into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’” 

Sounds fitting, right?

Dogfighters’ enemy was never the ASPCA, HSUS or any of the other humane societies they’ve complained about in pitbull forums. Their enemy was God.
