Who did the killing?
If you and I really believed that Christ died because of our sins would we ever purposefully sin again?
You can give without loving, but not love without giving.
Who does that?
God’s love is radical, His generosity is incomprehensible so I must be generous, not just with other Christians but with
those that are hostile. After all His love was radical, so I need to be as well.
Saying I am going to and actually doing it are two different things
Notice I didn’t say like.
Our command, our marching orders are to love. Not because it’s easy, or even fun, but that’s the Christian ethic. Sometimes we have to love people we may not even like very much. We are not told to revolt, rebelling against the rightfully, God established government. Neither are we to collaborate, trying to reach some weak-kneed compromise. And don’t even think about withdrawing, if Jesus wouldn’t pray that we be taken out of the world, then why would we ever think that’s the best answer.
Love isn’t compromise
Not easy doesn’t mean hard.
I wonder what the whole story is?
What about you, are there areas where you have assumptions that might not be true?
Love others well.
Perhaps we should try to love too much.
Or is it?
So which is it?
Have we gotten off track?
I don’t see how anyone could think other wise. We allow the wholesale murder of a defenseless group. The government steals from its citizens on a daily basis, taking the fruits of their labor to give to those who have not produced,( for an alternative view on how best to care and provide for the poor see the Acton Institute) . Not only failing to protect the weak, but taking advantage of them and using, these the weakest, as an excuse for much of it. And treating different people differently the very definition of discrimination all in the in the name of justice.
