Love Your Enemies

Categories: Religion

43"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.'  44But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be children of your Father in heaven.  He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.  46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?  Are not even the tax collectors doing that?  47And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others?  Do not even pagans do that?  48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."

Matthew 5:43-48 (NIV)

I would like to encourage everyone to take the time to mail a special Christmas card to our brothers and sisters at the Freedom from Religion Foundation:

FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION
PO BOX 750
MADISON WI  53701-0750

Please also send an e-card to info@ffrf.org.

If you prefer (or in addition to the mail and email), you can fax your Christmas greetings to them at (608) 204-0422.

Finally, I would encourage all Christians to join the Freedom from Religion Foundation organization, so that we can all stay on top of the attacks on our religious liberties, and can more easily maintain a dialogue.  To register, please visit https://ffrf.org/component/rsform/form/7-new-user-registration.

Jonas - Dec 4, 2012 04:09:12 — Francis, thanks for writing.  My first reaction was to dismiss your comments as spam.  But before I did that, I read it, parsed it, and tried to make some sense of it.  I visited the page you linked to, and read it.  You seem to have selected a few phrases from different version  ...more
