Love your neighbour like yourself applied to enemies
« on: March 17, 2018, 12:30:21 PM »
So are we supposed to love our enemies like ourselfes?

Lets take the law of the Universe, what you do comes back to you.

Willingly or unwillingly you may become enemy of somebody . You should treat your enemy the way you want to be treated by the person considering you an enemy.

Bible is clear saying you should love your enemy.

When you have an enemy you have two ways to go.

One way is to attack the enemy against the direction of the Bible and then he will attack you and then you attack again and then he attacks you all the way until both can arrive to Hell and destroy each other not listening to Bible.

Another way is to love your enemy the way Bible say. Then your enemy will like you and you'll like him more and so on and so on all the way to Heaven for both ,.

Also Bible says be smart, if someone tries to attack you defend yourself either by running he way St MAry run into Egypt but nonetheless ask God for the enemy to become friend and love your enemy
Then when willingly or unwillingly you will become the enemy of somebody else, he or she will love you and will pray to be friends.
What you do comes back to you..

For non Christians, Bible is the book of God, inspired by God addressed to all the people.

Romanian song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoiGnyys58s&list=RDKoiGnyys58s

In this song it is saying that God said even if your enemies want to kill you "dusmani de moarte" and had a council and they fell down , take the hate away and help them get on their feet.

It does not mean expose yourself or help them do any bad or harm to you.

So love your enemies in any circumstance without expose yourself or letting them harm you. Praying so you become friends again and that God would not allow them to hurt you in any way.

luke 6:27 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. 29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.


Do to others as you would have them do to you
Why?
Because what you do comes back to you.


So before acting against an enemy think that instead of him is YOU.

Its hard to love an enemy.

Love thy neighbor, like how i love chili dogs or is it the love of a child?

Pray, ask for peace and seek guidance. Dont be a doormat though.
