I thought "CHRISTIAN" love was supposed to encompass everyone. It doesn't. Many don't love those who are "the other". WHY?

Because they are the wrong color the wrong religion belong to the wrong political parties love people that are not approved of. How is that CHRISTIAN? So are those CHRISTIANS really not at all? Why do they present themselves as being Christian when they are not remotely following the teachings of CHRIST? Liars? Pretenders?

    A true Christian hates no one.

    There's a hell of a lot of false Christians out there then.  They all are in one tribe called THE BASE.  Cannot tell a Christian from a hater and cannot tell the TRUE NEWS FROM THE FAKE.

    Jesus did not say Vote for the leader who cares only about AMERICA and no one else.  I did not create Mexicans and brown people.  He was BROWN.  Hello?  He was not blonde.  He was BROWN.  Are you gonna switch faiths now?

    A Christian who follows the Bible does not hate. Jesus said love your enemies and do good to them....

    Just because a person claims something does not make it truth. I can claim that I have never broken a law in my life. I can even have a clean record but the fact that I have driven above the speed limit makes it a false statement.

    I agree which proves my point m2c. All WHITE NATIONALISTS HATE those who aren't. The Don don was very loathe to blame a White Nationalist for the New Zealand terrorist attack on Muslims. He is lways mealy mouthed and mushy mouted and fuzzy when it comes to placing blame on people like him. But if those folks had been massacred by a Muslim or a person of color we would not hear the end of it. You choose to ignore that. You have that right. Thank you for your observation. I agree with it. Where do we go from here? Happy Saturday to thee. This post was edited by RosieG at March 16, 2019 2:42 AM MDT

    I think the trouble is that Christians are taught that they are the extension of being the "chosen people".
    They are first taught the Old Testament stories (as children).
    So they get all those stories about how God "told them" to kill and oppress people who weren't "chosen".

    THEN, when they get to the New Testament, they are taught that the ONLY way to salvation is by believing as they do.
    "So, hey, those with other beliefs aren't going to Heaven anyway - so they aren't worth as much as I am."

    SOME are even taught (in Revelations) that only 144,000 people are going to Heaven.  (12 tribes x 12,000 people each)
    Of course, they disregard that would mean only JEWS go to Heaven ... and somehow convince themselves they are 1 of those 144,000 people.
    So all the billions of other people not going to Heaven are less worthy.


    And yes ... I was raised "in the faith" and saw first-hand these teachings.

    I was too and I stopped being a Catholic when I was 13 for this very reason.  If you were not Catholic you could not get into heaven and if you wore a sacred scapular under your clothes you were guaranteed admission automatically.

    Imagine even a kid swallowing that nonsense.  These nuns were from the Santa Claus era I think.

    Christians are not the Chosen people.  Jews are and always will be. 

    Rev does not say only 144,000 are going to Heaven.  It says the about in unnumerable. 

    If you were taught that it was wrong.

    Your comment is evidence of my point.
    If it's not what you were taught - it is "wrong".

    It is not what is in the Bible. The Bible is the teacher...If a man/woman teacher what is not in there....they are wrong.

    Revelations 7:3-8
    Revelations 14:1
    Revelations 14:3-5

    You can interpret it however you want.  After all, nothing in Revelations is literal.

    Some interpret those passages to mean that only 144,000 will be admitted to Heaven.
    There are other interpretations, of course.  
    But given the billions of people who have populated the Earth, none of them make sense.

    Keep reading Rev 7:9.....and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.

    Thank you for your thoughtful and informative reply Walt. I'm a New Testament product I guess. From the time I was very small I was taught that GOD IS LOVE and GOD LOVES ALL. I taught Sunday School classes to the kids when I was 12 at the local Presbyterian Church I attended. I do not remember EVER hearing of a God as you describe in the Old Testament. We are all shaped by how we were raised. Those ideas inculcated in us by our parents stick. At least that is true for me. Now it's true I left the church decades ago. But I never left God. I'm stuck being the person I am. I cannot think believe feel any other way than I do. The only person I have ever despised in my entire life is Don don. I used to pride myself on not ever hating anyone. Why? Because it used to be true. For him I make an exception. What else will his loyal peeps defend him from? Everything and anything forever more. Whatever he is charged with no matter by whom no matter the proof no matter the evil attendant thereto. SIGH. Happy Saturday!  :) This post was edited by RosieG at March 16, 2019 2:51 AM MDT

      Gee, haven't you quite often expressed your hatred?  I don't know whether or not you identify yourself as one of the Christians mentioned in this post, so if you do, the all-encompassing love espoused therein must also show through in order to avoid hypocrisy, right?
