    ReligiousLiberty.TV ^ | 04/01/2012 | Jason Hines
    By Jason Hines Because of situations in my own life I have been repeatedly returning to the concept of loving your enemies. I have wrestled with this issue publicly (I have preached a sermon on this subject twice) and at times in this space, but I have yet to share here my spiritual thoughts on the issue. The best place to begin is with the words of Christ. In Matthew 5:43-48 (NASB) Jesus says, “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray...

    Every day let us pray and ask GOD to help us shave off the learnings of this world that has effected us and many that we love. Though we have to live in this world, we dont have to do the things the world has taught us. There are ways around all situations when GOD is the focus.

    Former White House aide and Duke Blue Devils forward Reggie Love stars in a new Obama campaign video aimed at courting the president’s African-American supporters. “Since 2006, I’ve spent a lot of time with our president,” says Love, who left the administration last year to attend business school. “I got to work in the West Wing, I traveled to 33 countries, I’ve done everything from tracking down newspapers, figuring out what he wants to eat, who he’s going to eat with, and played endless amounts of basketball games.” “The president has always had our back,” he adds, encouraging viewers to...

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.( John 3:16)We find ourselves at this point in our study of John chapter three at perhaps the most beloved and well know verse in the Bible. Certainly it is the singularly most widely translated sentence of any kind in the world. With reverence we approach these words of glad tidings from heaven. But it is possible, in fact probable, that the sheer familiarity of these words to many in our culture, has an unfortunate deadening...

    As a family we have been reading an incredibly helpful and moving book, called the Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom. It is the true account of a christian family in in Nazi occupied Holland, sent to concentration camps for the crime of harboring Jews in their home. The two unmarried sisters, Corrie and Betsie, both in their fifties, were living with their godly Father, Kasper Ten Boom, when the Nazi war machine rolled into their lives, bringing death and turmoil to their formerly comfortable and predictable lives. Because they loved Jesus and the Word of God, they opened their...

    Taxpayers are unlucky in love this Valentine’s Day. Of an identified $17 billion in Valentine’s Day related spending on candy, flowers, dinner, jewelry, greetings cards, clothing, and hotels, government composes 33.14 percent of those costs—approximately $5.6 billion in revenues. But how does government love thee? Let us tax the ways…. This year’s average Valentine’s Day spending is estimated to be $126.03 a person, an 8 percent increase in spending since last year. Valentine’s Day spending is subject to income taxes, payroll taxes, corporate income taxes, and other taxes on business activity. Government then includes additional fees, excise taxes, and international...

    Muslims told Valentine’s Day can invoke wrath of God KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 10 — An invitation “to be my Valentine” on February 14 is against Islamic beliefs and would incur the wrath of Allah, Muslims were told today in the official Friday sermon prepared by the federal government. The sermon warned Muslims against celebrating Valentine’s Day, which the federal Islamic authorities claimed was in breach of the tenets of their religion. In the text of a sermon provided by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) titled “Awas jerat Valentine” (Beware Valentine’s trap), Muslims were told that asking someone to...
