Love does trump hate, but this isn’t love…


Love does trump hate. Jesus said so::

Love never fails…1 Corinthians 13:8

But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. Matthew 5:44-45

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:8

Do those who carried the signs saying “Love Trumps Hate” really understand this? I don’t think so. Look at what was done to some who supported Trump. 

 


What many people do not comprehend is that lawlessness and violence are one of the reasons 1/2 of America voted for Donald Trump. Protest should be reserved for injustice, not for complaining about losing elections and protest should not be violent.

Love does trump hate, but it is hateful to limit the freedom of others because of the candidate they support. That is not love.

Looting and violence isn’t loving, it is hateful.

If only our educational institutions would go back to teaching this simple principle:

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you. – Jesus

This applies to all people: red and yellow, black and even white, all are precious in His sight.
