Bible on Enemies

(Christmas, Bonus Quote)

How does God expect us to treat our enemies?

"Listen, all of you.

  • Love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you.
  • Pray for the happiness of those who curse you; implore God's blessing on those who hurt you.
  • If someone slaps you on one cheek, let him slap the other too!
  • If someone demands your coat, give him your shirt besides.
  • Give what you have to anyone who asks you for it; and when things are taken away from you, don't worry about getting them back.
  • Treat others as you want them to treat you. Do you think you deserve credit for merely loving those who love you? Even the godless do that!
  • And if you do good only to those who do you good is that so wonderful? Even sinners do that much!
  • And if you lend money only to those who can repay you, what good is that? Even the most wicked will lend to their own kind for full return!
  • Love your enemies! Do good to them! Lend to them! And don't be concerned about the fact that they won't repay.
  • Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as sons of God: for He is kind to the unthankful and to those who are very wicked. Try to show as much compassion as your Father does."

Luke 6:27-36, TLB

Jesus Said...

Jesus said,
"Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing."

Dividing his garments among them, they cast lots. The people stood watching. The rulers with them also scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others. Let him save himself, if this is the Christ of God, his chosen one!" The soldiers also mocked him, coming to him and offering him vinegar, and saying, "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!" An inscription was also written over him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew: "THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS." One of the criminals who was hanged insulted him, saying, "If you are the Christ, save yourself and us!" But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Don't you even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong." He said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when you come into your Kingdom."

Jesus said to him,
"Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise."

- Luke 23:26-43

Marlo Thomas on Gender Equality

One of the things about equality is not just that you be treated equally to a man,
but that you treat yourself equally to the way you treat a man.

Gope Lalwani

"The Prime Minister of INDIA gives chit to Mr. Natwersingh
his ministerial collegue says:
'Natwar is INNOCENT till proved GUILTY.'
in spite of mounting proof of guilt in Volcker report of food for oil scandal.

His government in INDIA treats and continue to say that victim families
trapped by Indian Police under section 498A are;
"GUILTY till proved INNOCENT".
in spite of unverified contents of first information report filed by police.

Why this Double talk and Double standards?"
