Teach Love, not Hate!

I am saddened when a church allows foolishness to rule it’s statements to the public. I am not telling them to deny their beliefs, I am trying to point out that the most effective way to make your beliefs a part of what you stand for is to voice the truth about what is presented in the Old Testament of Christian Bibles. Now, those of you who know me, know that I do not make it my business to mind the lives of those around me that do not align with my own beliefs. I am one of those people that figures if you treat me with kindness, I will return the same behavior toward you.

That is true no matter what you do in your private life. I have people in my life who have rebellious children. I don’t advocate that they should stone them as they are instructed to do in the OT. I have people in my life who are openly gay. They are good to me, and operate in kindness and compassion toward others. This is all that I could ask of them. I have people in my life who have been raped. The OT version of how you should treat them is so unbelievably harsh that I could not go there.

What I am saying here is that if you add up the punishments proscribed in the OT, there is no one, no not anyone, whose life would be unscathed. So, what to do? Well, the Buddha, and Y’shua both taught a way of life that, no matter if you believe in an Almighty God or not, lead to peace of an everlasting sort. What, you say, could do that? Treat all, no exceptions, with kindness and compassion. It’s that simple. Actually, if you are, as you say, a believer in the New Covenant of Christ, you have no choice. His one commandment was “Love one another as I have loved you.” If all those who called themselves Christian lived by that rule, there would be no issue. All the foolishness would go away.

But, we have to start with the children. Teach them to be kind. Teach them to look at all other beings on the planet with compassion. We teach kindness and compassion by BEING kind to them. Neither abuse the children nor teach them to hate, this will only compound the problems that exist here on this planet. You cannot teach children to hate and expect love and peace to follow in the next generation. So, what do you teach? Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, humility, gentleness, and self-control. that’s what you should be teaching your children. When I see this in a church, I know that it is one where the truth of God reigns, when I don’t see it, I know that The Holy Spirit is not there.

    • I wrote the things on my blog, so if this has spoken to you, I hope you will be open to the idea that Spirit is speaking to you. I have had to learn many of the things I speak of here the hard way. I hear voices, some of them not the kind words of Spirit, I have had to learn to filter through what I hear so that I do not do the things some of the voices have said to do. That has led me on a path of much study and much contemplation of what I have learned. I hope it was of help to you!!! Suzi
