asian, african), for you yourselves were foreigners in North America in the beginning. Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. (Deuteronomy 10:19-20). Jesus says: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Love your enemies (European, latin people, musulman, asian, african) and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.Ã¢â‚¬Â (Matthew 5:44). Solomon says: Ã¢â‚¬Å“When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.Ã¢â‚¬Â (Proverbs 16:7). Paul says: Ã¢â‚¬Å“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.Ã¢â‚¬Â (Romans 12:18-21). John says: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.Ã¢â‚¬Â (1 John 2:9-11).By Anonymous on General,
