“You have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” Matthew 5:38-39
I am all for loving your brother and forgiveness. I do not hold grudges and have malice towards none, even if they really piss me off and I do think they are terrible people. I know that sooner or later it all comes out in the wash, or it doesn’t, I really don’t care. Just don’t mess with me. I know that I am no better than my enemies when I only love those that are good to me but I don’t like people that hurt me. I realize that you cannot love evil people dearly but you can have compassion and forgiveness if they ask for it. You do not have to get even.
If nobody ever forgave, everyone would try to get even and this is why the world keeps fighting even though they know better. The ones that don’t want to follow the commandments of God simply begin their own religions and expect that they will be taken seriously. You can believe anything you want, but for me and my house we will serve the Lord. We will believe the truth when it is self evident. I know Jesus is the son of God for how he lived and what he could do beyond the resurrection. If everyone refuses to say they are sorry or forgive an injustice and demands payment for a sin, it will continue to man’s final blood bath because it can only escalate in hatred and anger.
In this teaching, Dr Martin Luther King Jr said, “The old law of an eye for an eye leaves everybody blind. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding. It seeks to annihilate rather than to convert.” This is the problem with the world leaders including America. To pretend to be Christian and then go out to slaughter your enemies in retaliation to their evil, is complete hypocrisy and very sad to me because if you really do have a relationship with Jesus, you could not do this. Jesus told his disciples that if they loved him, they will keep his commandments. They will love one another because to not keep this commandment means the end of the world.
Nowhere to go but up?
Heaven is up.
Americans have nowhere to go. I recently received an email from the Whitehouse to help persuade the average citizen that legalizing the illegals is a good thing. I know better than that. In it were short stories of aliens achieving the American Dream by coming here and how our immigration system now needs reform.
We do not need any immigration reform. We need to stop those in power from using brainwashing propaganda against those that do not know any better in a pretense that this is what everyone believes or should. Sneaking into any country is illegal and considered a crime. Instead of penalizing these people and their children, our government has now decided not only to condone this bad behavior, but reward it. Reward the children of illegals with education that is not even offered our American Orphans or foster children when they age out of our systems. Not offered to those in single parent families. Do your homework on the Dream Act.
This is shockingly bad judgement and it doesn’t seem to stop, even when those that are wiser point it out.
There are those in our government that make false claims that illegals work and pay taxes. This is not true. They work under other people’s social security numbers and have caused complete turmoil in the IRS and state income tax system. They do this every time one does try to file and there are 5 or 10 other individuals all using the same social security number that some creep sold them. Some know they are doing this so they just don’t file. The IRS doesn’t know what is going on until they try to file for the non-compliant taxpayer and find income coming in from all over the country for this one social security number during the filing year. When some do file, they are later contacted that they have not reported all of their income because they were not aware that others were working and showing earnings under that same number.
Shame on our government for letting this and so many other terrible things go on and they have done nothing to stop it. This shows the degree of incompetency or criminal intent that is now the norm.
How sad that Americans have nowhere to go to escape their country to try and find the same bright future promised to the immigrants. How disgusting that so much of the world emulates our western and wrong culture because of an incorrect belief that having money means you are successful. Having money merely means you are on top for now.
The higher you are, the farther you have to fall.
