God's love is a holy love. God absolutely hates injustice. God has mercy for the lost, if He didn't we would all end up in hell. It was God's holy love and His mercy for His people that drew Him to the cross. We are to hate what God hates and love what God loves. Injustice I am against. Oh excuse me, I abhorred it. Holy love means that God will not, cannot, tolerate sin for if He did, He would not be God at all.

Amen Jack. I am guilty of not always handling my posts with a loving and kind heart & I have read many other posts that do the same. The point of this question is to get us thinking in terms of more loving, kind & merciful responses. I am sorry to everyone I have ever responded to calously and with a patronizing tone. I will be Spirit led with all future responses. Remember my brohters and sisters we are to accept one another as Christ has accepted us.

That was a beautiful example of Christ-like love and humility, Ryan.

Sometimes we get mixed up... sometimes when I say 'show mercy' I later find I mean 'it wasn't a problem' (if not a problem, mercy is not what's needed). Sometimes I think of justice, forget mercy....

We all chat on these pages but what is the result, many times agruements that run in cirles. I believe we need to start forging relationships with people in these blogs and know whose comments matter to you and whose don't.
Emcee, i like this person's comments sometimes so i listen to that person. Others which i won't mention i read but not as intently as those who i believe should have a guiding voice in our spiritual journey

Love, mercy & justice. I believe these are all tied in with the concept of forgiveness. If someone offends you then to have mercy is to not demand payment for their fault. Sometimes people have lost all concept of repentance and Justice is the best option cause they need to leaarn how to respect their lives again. Love is doing which ever is best for the offender and looking for genuine repentance in yourself

I'm learning to be more thoughtful, and considerate concerning others feelings. We're not all alike in our ways and thoughts. I'm not always on target but my aim to please God. Because of that, I'm more conscious of what I'm saying, thinking, and doing as I walk this journey of salvation.

You've asked a good question, Ryan.
The source--and standard--of true love, mercy, and justice is to be sought in Christ alone.
Alas, how many of us--even the select group that posts to these blogs--fail in expressing it ourselves.

Debbie, I don't have a problem with Grace, wanna know why? Because everytime I deserved to suffer the consequences of my sin when I was first saved many years ago, instead, God loved me, God showed me the depth of His love for me and covered my sin. That's how I came to know God's grace, and now I show it to others ALL day long! Isn't God awesome? Doing wonders, who is like unto thee?

I think Grace should be rght up there with love. I believe we may understand love, mercy and justice, but I don't think we understand God's grace. If we understood God's grace, we would not have a problem with showing love and mercy and justice to others. God's grace is all inclusive, it is because of His grace that we live and breath. Grace is not something new, He showed grace in the Garden of Eden, to Abraham, to the Children of Israel, to all of mankind. Why do we have such a problem with it?

Ryan:Amen I concur "Love one another as I have loved you"
---Emcee on 9/13/06


The love of God flows through us by the Power of the Holy Spirit. When you're walking in the Spirit, you can show people God's love all the time. I show mercy to folks everyday by letting them offend me, cut in front of me while driving, etc., and I immediately forgive them. Justice is not mine to vindicate, but God has been my Justice and I'm sure He will do for others what He's done for me.
