A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. – John 13:34-35. This is the word of GOD so who are we to be hating people? When does the hatred and killing stop?

What can we learn from Fred Waldron Phelps, Sr. (November 13, 1929 – March 19, 2014) was an American pastor who headed the Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), an independent church based in Topeka, Kansas. Phelps attained notoriety primarily from his vehemently anti-gay activism and his picketing of funerals of homosexuals and soldiers. – http://www.wickipedia.com. They planned to picket deceased actor Robin Williams funeral as well as deceased boxer Muhammad Ali. They have also protested the funerals of military service members, Steve Jobs, Michael Jackson and the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting in Connecticut. Phelps died in 2014, after being in very poor health. How hatred affects the body – One 5 minute episode of anger is so stressful that it can impair your immune system for more than 6 hours!

I was watching a baseball game the other day on TV and one of the broadcasters said the word equanimity. I was curious because I have never heard words like that from sports people so I looked it up. The word itself sounds very strong but I was delightfully surprised at its meaning. Equanimity – mental calmness, composure and evenness of temper especially in a difficult situation. This was what was displayed by the people of Orlando FL in the wake of the senseless hateful killings in regards to Pulse Night Club. Christian Books – Donna Louis – Bestow Love

GOD our heavenly father stated to us many times that we are to love one another, not to kill each other, and that none of us is perfect or without sin:
They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. – Psalm 14:3
Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. – John 8:1-7
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: – Romans 3:10
Thou shalt not kill. – Exodus 20:13
Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
– I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
– I shall fear only God.
– I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
– I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
– I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
