What a different world it would be today if even the so called “Christians,” much less “Christian nations,” followed Jesus’ commands and teachings…
“You have heard that it has been said, You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you; That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven: for he makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Mat 5:43-45 KJ2000)
When we return evil for evil, curse for curses, hate for hate and murder for murder, who do we manifest as the one who is our father? The same father as those who sought to kill Jesus Who said to those self-righteous Jews, “You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (Joh 8:44 KJ2000)
Do we know what spirit we are of in this hate filled world? I think that there is a lot of room for some real soul searching and repentance among those of us who claim Christ as our Savior and times like this show us what is really in our hearts.
