Jesus commands us to love ALL people as much as we love ourselves:
One of the scribes came, and heard them questioning together. Knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the greatest of all?” Jesus answered, “The greatest is, ‘Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one: you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. The second is like this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” – Mark 12:28-31
Christians must be peacemakers. Jesus said:
“Blessed are the PEACEMAKERS, for they shall be called the CHILDREN OF GOD.” – Mt. 5:9
Jesus commands us to love our enemies, that we may be His children:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, BLESS THOSE WHO CURSE YOU, DO GOOD to those WHO HATE you, and PRAY FOR THOSE WHO MISTREAT YOU and persecute you, THAT YOU MAY BE CHILDREN of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? Therefore you shall BE PERFECT, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” – Mt. 5:43-48
Sarah Palin Says Only Americans Worthy of Rights?
Feb 21, 2010
The recent Republican talking point that US constitutional rights are only for Americans citizens was nowhere so jingoistically and hypocritically expressed as it was by Sarah Palin in her appearances this month on “Fox News Sunday” and at a national Tea Party Convention, as I show in this video.
The clip I use of Sarah Palin appearing on “Fox News Sunday” comes from the segment broadcast February 7, 2010, available online at http://media2.foxnews.com/020710/0207…
The clips I use of Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) delivering the closing keynote address of the first-ever National Tea Party Convention, held in Nashville, TN comes from the program broadcast on CSPAN on February 6, 2010, available on CSPAN’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7gVp3…
Chuck Baldwin: What Does John Hagee Really Want? — “These WARMONGERING EVANGELICALS beat the war drums; they encourage the young men from their churches to go off and fight these ‘holy’ wars; they WORK TIRELESSLY TO ELECT PRO-WAR POLITICIANS…. Then, the politicians … send the US military to invade, bomb, and KILL HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people, the vast majority of whom are innocent people. … ANIMOSITY against the United States is GROWING EXPONENTIALLY; in an effort to keep our country at war, our ECONOMY is being overburdened and overtaxed TO THE POINT OF NO RETURN; in the name of the “War on Terror,” America is on the verge of becoming a giant POLICE STATE; we are INCITING CHINA AND RUSSIA INTO NUCLEAR WAR; and America’s military VETERANS are KILLING THEMSELVES more frequently than are enemy bullets”
Chuck Baldwin: Do Americans Cherish Freedom Anymore? — Where do our rights come from, and what is the government’s role? Why are born-again Christians among the first to gladly relinquish their freedom?
Can Sarah Palin be a real, going-to-heaven Christian, part 2? — Encouraging Bristol’s tango on DWTS: “Is it like lap dancing scandalous (giggling, darting out her tongue)? … Just dominate. Just take over.”
What is Anchorage’s new statue sitting there thinking? “Why does Alaska still support Sarah Palin, the OPPOSITE OF RON PAUL on foreign interventionism?” — & — “Why did ‘Christians’ in this town vote for George W. Bush, the OPPOSITE OF JESUS on foreign interventionism, TWICE?”
Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? Are warmongerers real Christians? “Can warmongerers go to heaven?
Jesus in Matthew 5
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God. …
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 47 If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
Paul said in Romans 8:14
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.
My favorite 9/11 truth post (there are over 100 more at ToBeFree)— in case you’d like to find out what really happened — who really were responsible. All of this hate and anger for what?? When are we going to be true Christians? They’ll know us by our love.
