Pat Robertson needs help Editor,
It is ‘Thou shalt not kill’ and ‘Thou shalt not bear false witness.’ The leaders of America are doing both, and most of them know this.
Pat Robertson is promoting Bush’s agenda. He is not Christian! He is Pharisee as Jesus said, “All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.”(Mat.23:3-4)
King Solomon of old, reputedly the wisest mortal to ever walk the earth, wrote, “Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins” (Proverbs 10:12). If you hate somebody, your interactions with them are likely to breed disagreement and conflict. But if you love them, even if they have wronged you, it’s possible to look beyond their faults and accept and forgive them.
This may sound like a noble aspiration — to overlook and forgive all the flaws and failings of others — but realistically, who is capable of suddenly releasing resentment, hatred, fear or other deep-seated negative attitudes they may harbor towards individuals or entire groups of people? Most of us lack the resolve and emotional wherewithal to do that.
The Bible tells us that “God is love” (1 John 4:8). He is the all-powerful Spirit of love who created the universe and brought us all into being. Try it, Pat!
