Wallabies and Waratahs star fullback Israel Folau has issued another anti-gay post via his Instagram account.
The post contains an image which says that “hell awaits” drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolators. The image also states that “only Jesus saves”.
Folau leads with the caption:
“Those that are living in Sin will end up in Hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him.”

Those that are living in Sin will end up in Hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him. _______________ Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these , adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Galatians 5:19-21 KJV _______________ Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 2:38 KJV _______________ And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
Acts 17:30 KJV _______________
In April 2018, Rugby Australia decided not to punish Folau for a series of anti-gay tweets citing freedom of expression and upholding Rugby Australia’s aim of inclusiveness.
However, Rugby Australia boss Raelene Castle is understood to have issued a firm warning to Folau on his behaviour and it remains to be seen whether she will be as forgiving this time around.
Folau also tweeted a screenshot of Tasmania’s decision to make gender optional on birth certificates where he stated, “The devil has blinded so many people in this world, REPENT and turn away from your evil ways. Turn to Jesus Christ who will set you free.”
