I am not for taking away peoples rights to bear arms and honestly if someone was to come into my home or village in an attempt to harm or hurt me and my family. I don’t believe I would be able to turn the other cheek. I would have to defend and then ask God my forgiveness if any need be.
With that said… I wouldn’t expect any less from anyone anywhere who loves their own.
The answer to stop all such madness.
“Love your enemies and pray for those who hate you” ~ Matthew 5:44
“Bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you”. ~ Luke 6:28
Now I know that humanity and myself as well maybe far from “turning the other cheek” but in all reality if everyone of us on this planet could get this message from Christ’s heart given to him from our creator and heavenly Father…
If we all would right now STOP the hate and wars and actually begin to love our enemies and pray for those who are out to hurt us and right now begin to Bless those who curse us….
In no time at all there would be no more enemies, hate or curse.
We could all be Loved and Blessed Friends on this Earth. Forgiving one another and Healing from all of the wounds we have inflicted upon each other. Actually caring about things like who on this Earth doesn’t have access to clean drinking water, clothing or food and how we can move as a collective force (The Kingdom) powered by God’s Love, Wisdom and Heavenly Will for this planet to meet those needs.
To me it has been clear for years.
The answers to all of our Earthen woes whether nationally, locally, in family or personally are all found in the correctly translated Red Letter Teachings of Christ.
God’s Love for us ALL and his ways and answers are found in the timeless teachings of Christ.
Until the glorious love and knowing of The Lord covers the whole Earth as the waters cover the sea… We will all still have to stand and contend for this great end.
In His Love, Pastor Scott Boggs
