  • Five Lessons on Loving Your Enemies

    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...

    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...

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.

    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...

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...

    The 2012 presidential election is in full swing. The Republicans have lined up to vote for whomever they think shares their values and will beat Barack Obama. There is a large segment of the Republican base known as social conservatives and the “Religious Right.” Often these Christian voters focus on issues like abortion, gay marriage, prayer in schools, etc. However, Christians should also focus on more foreign policy issues, like war and peace, international development, and conflict zones. Christian ethics necessarily means that they have to reject certain international relations concepts, like realism and isolationism. Realism holds that all that...

She didn’t make it to her 18th birthday. She died 12 days after he was born, from the brain cancer that doctors told her she had more than a year earlier. Rather than accept treatment which may have endangered her baby, Jenni Lake decided against treating her cancer. I am sure that she died happy because she followed God’s plan.

The study, “The Specter of Divorce: Views from Working and Middle-Class Cohabitors,” is published in the journal Family Relations (December 2011) and is co-authored by Sharon Sassler, Cornell professor of policy analysis and management, and Dela Kusi-Appouh, a Cornell doctoral student in the field of development sociology. “Young Americans increasingly express apprehension about their ability to successfully manage intimate relationships. Partially in response, cohabitation has become normative over the past few decades,”...

I will betroth you in faithfulness, and you will acknowledge the LORD.” — Hosea 2:19-20 At times, it is difficult to read through portions of the Hebrew Bible (what Christians call the Old Testament) — in particular, the words of the prophets.

    November, many of us Americans may reflect on Thanksgiving. It is the quintessential American holiday. English pilgrims, seeking religious freedom, boarded the Mayflower at Plymouth, England to go west - crossing the Atlantic. And they landed at Cape Cod (Massachusetts) on Plymouth Rock in 1620. Half did not survive the winter. But with the providential help of Squanto from the Wampanoag tribe, the pilgrims cultivated the land and forged an alliance with the Native Americans - one that would last for more than 50 years. In 1621, the pilgrims celebrated the harvest with a feast - considered America's first Thanksgiving...
