Christian Passions Forum







NOTE: JULY 2019 - We recently re-activated the forum after (MANY) years of it being locked down. You will see a lot of old forum posts because this site has been up and active for over 10+ years. Feel free to begin posting again and even replying to old threads that seem interesting. Posts appear in the forum area and on your profile page and on the Community page, so posting in the Forum is a great way to let other members get to know you a little bit, and it definitely helps with visibility in the site. Have fun!




Love Everyone

John 13:34

"A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another."

If Jesus said this then why do us Christians have such a hard time with this? It is a simple concept is it not?? Love others as I have loved you... there are NO exceptions to this rule... its not love them if they follow all the commandments, love them if they go to church, love them if they do volunteer work or follow what the church says. Jesus says "love them as I have loved you." Why is it conditional? Jesus did not come to earth to help those that have the food, water, shelter, and are on the right path, he came to help and love on those who need guidance and love and rolemodels. What good are we doing loving those that everyone else loves? How is that spreading love? its not... we need to love those that the world hates, love those that spit in our faces and love those that have even killed others. Jesus wants us to follow in his footsteps... He ate with the tax collectors, saved the adultress from being stoned, and talked EVEN told the thief that was hanging next to him on the cross that he would see him in Heaven. HOW can we, as Christians go against this? Where can you go wrong from loving everyone? To exclude people from the love that we are to show is to exclude them from help and the possibility of getting better.

I'm always open for discussion and other views, but this is what the Spirit has put heavy on my heart, email me if you wish Smile
