Our Lord says to love our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us. Let it be so; in truth and action, amen. And we are to love like our Lord, because God is love. There are those who say that this love that we are commanded to have means to avoid embarrassing the invading hoards of barbarians. They say this love means appeasing the feminists, and the abominable homosexuals and transsexuals. I will say to them that yes, God is love, and we are commanded to love. But part of Love is discipline. And the root of discipline is Justice. And God is Just.
We know that God loves all men. And yet, when our Lord returns, there will be great and terrible Justice served to this fallen world. We know that God loves every soul and desires unity with each. And yet there awaits eternal Justice for those who deny God, eternal separation from our creator, our light and peace, the author of our souls.
God is Just.
There is no forgiveness of sins without repentance. This is the base line for God’s Justice. And therefore, as servants of God, men of love and compassion, we must also be Just.
Hand in hand with God’s love, our Lord hates. It is part of Justice, and therefore we must hate.
The Lord hates six things; in fact, seven are detestable to Him: arrogant eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that plots wicked schemes, feet eager to run to evil, a lying witness who gives false testimony, and one who stirs up trouble among brothers. – Proverbs 6:16-19
I would say to the appeaser, that we are to hate murderous barbarians, baby killers, and those who drop bombs on schools and hospitals. Why? Because our Lord hates hands that shed innocent blood.
I would say that we are to hate feminists, Communists, and advocates of perversion. Because our Lord hates a lying tongue, a heart that plots wicked schemes, and feet eager to run to evil.
And I would say to the appeaser that we are to hate them, too. Because our Lord hates those who give false testimony and stir up trouble among brothers.
There is no forgiveness of sins without repentance, and God is Just.
