John 2:9 Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.
It is a decision one has to make. We can accept the grace of God, or we can wallow in bitterness and hatred for others. Hatred poisons the soul. It physically manifests as addiction, and it binds us negatively to those with whom we find disagreeable. Hatred is a trap, and is spiritually incompatible with the professing Christian.
The worst of us are made worthy already in the eyes of God through Christ our Lord. And surprisingly, some of those who profess this belief cannot get beyond hatred of the man who is our president. He lives in their thoughts to be permanently scorned, abhorred, rejected outright. No matter the results of his efforts to secure for us a more prosperous, and healthy nation.
To which I offer this prayer.
Oh Lord, Father, Creator, giver of life, hear the cries of this nation. Hear the despair that manifests itself as antipathy for the President, a man you have sent to lead our nation. Right the hearts oh God, of those who cannot separate themselves from the hate to which they hold so tightly in their hearts. Heal their wounded souls so they might know the difference between disagreement and willful revulsion.
Cure the poison within us Lord, so that we may find the path to you in righteous posture. Cast out our addiction to hatred and indignant pride. Reveal to all the love in Your holy word. Make a way for us to open our hearts and expel that which binds us to continued pain through obsession.
Oh Father hear our pleas.
Show those who seek you, how to love as you instruct. Put us in the paths of those who do not, we your willing servants, so they might know the way to you oh God. Give us the strength to guide them to you Father in the name of your son Jesus who bore the weight of our sins and offered us eternal life.
Is that so, reverend Gillman?
"Hatred is a trap, and is spiritually incompatible with the professing Christian."
No, dummy, the deviants, freaks, and perverts are what you defend. Transtesticle's in women's bathrooms, landwhale lesbians hoarding adopted children, can go on and on.
"Redeemed" bullshit. Attempt has to be made first.
Why this nation will go into the shitter. Way to go, Boomer. Never call them out- just cuck.
I don't mind your opinion. I expected it in fact.
Disagreement with the deviants, perverts and freaks is not hatred. Hating evil is biblical.
However, obsession, and the inability to release yourself from the self destruction of hating a people, or persons (like those with TDS do) is something that affects us, changes us, and makes it hard to be right with God and frankly our own mental well being.
I have said my piece.
