Well, something like this cannot be decidedly stated for every man on the planet, nor can it be stated for any man. By this I mean that no man's heart was given for us to judge and know the inner depths of as this is God's domain and not ours. All that can be judged is your own heart, and the love you must feel is the love of Christ, willing to die for a man, but to never stand by his sin. The problem is that our society seems to put tolerance and acceptance on the same plate as love, expecting us to eat from all dishes. Just decide for yourself who you will be, and of what food you will eat.

Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

Romans 13:2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God:


1 Kings 3:7 And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant president instead of Mitt Romney: and he is but a little child: he knows not how to go out or come in.
1 Kings 3:8 And thy servant Obama is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
1 Kings 3:9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that he may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

wow trav amen brother. some of us can see thru evil by someone who thinks they are perfect. you can bet God didn't send our president. I do pray for him because he needs to be saved. I've heard he is nice person and that's fine. all I know is he is not presidential material.

OUR BELOVED AND BENOVELANT RULER,....

---francis on 6/17/13

Your ruler. Your heart is showing. Some rulers an followers are beloved of satan, some of mahometans, etc. (translation Cluny). GOD does allow deviants from scripture in earthly power for those who choose them.

2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

2Ti 3:9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

2Ti 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

There was someone else in the Bible who tried to twist scriptures on Jesus. His name was Satan. There just comes a point when you have say to Francis "get behind me, Satan". Someone who twists scriptures like this to justify something as evil as Barack Obama is a servant of Satan.

Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

According to Francis, Jesus was a non-christian because he often called out the wicked rulers in his day and did not apologize for it. He did this so often that they wanted to kill him on several occasions and eventually did. According to Francis, Hitler was God's anointed one also and the allies were wrong for stopping him and saving the Jews. And Pharaoh was God's anointed one also, and Moses was wrong to defy him. And Elijah was wrong for refusing to worship the king, and for calling down fire which killed all the king's false prophets. Interestingly though, Bush was not God's anointed and it's okay for Francis to bash him.
---Jed on 6/17/13


francis, if the president was God's anointed, he would act like it. he supports all things umbiblical. our government suppresses free speech and Christians are a minority. us who didn't vote for him must put up with him. I pray for him but I don't respect him. I am not a democrat or rebublican...both are corrupt. I just go with what's right.

Your deviant flag waves proudly fran.
Your king is not anointed by GOD. He is a public servant in this country.
He was allowed by GOD and allowed by the people who didn't vote but, should have.
He is a sign of USA's sinking degradation and confused complacency about who we allow to serve us.

GOD is my King. He outranks yours.

No apology required for rejecting the scripturally deviant.

Francis, nothing has been disproven except for the testimoies of IRS officials. As of now, the FACTS that have been revealed through congressional hearings, whitehouse visitor logs, and IRS records, point to Obama. So until they are proven to be anything other than the FACTS that they are, you should be apologizing for defending this monster. A few democrat loud mouths denying wrong doing is not proof of anything. As of right now, the information points to Obama's guilt. So it is you who should be apologizing to us now. Do the christian thing Francis, and apologize for your Obama/satan worship.

Too much has already been revealed that points directly to Obama. No democrat lie is going to erase that. More IS being revealed every day, and it points to Obama's guilt, not his innocence.

I push love but I do not push Universalism. Some people do. Part of the reason for that is that they look at those who say GOD burns people for all eternity in hell for what he made them do. There used to be an atheist show on making fun of this doctrine.

This doctrine caused me to not be a Christian for many years. Till I actually read the Bible for myself. I see where JESUS prayed for those who crucified him. He did not hate them. He wanted to save the rich ruler but the rich man loved his money more than GOD.

We should push love. We should not be telling people that GOD hates you and wants to torture you for eternity.

He isn't a Republican, he was appointed by an Republican president.
A difference.
His taxes (2002) reveals and he states he has only donated to the the Democrat Party.
That shows how Bush isn't bias. Because the IRS is suppose to be neutral.
It just shows Democrats can't play fair.

Plus the IRS admitted to wrong doing, and illegal activity when targeting the Tea party and the like.
Not progressive or Democrats words, only Republican words.

Yes, the one's who push the love of God, or the love of Christ are pushing for Universal salvation. One can see by the answers many here give. God loved Israel, but didn't show that same love to the other nations. Many were destroyed for the survival of Israel. Woman and children, even animals went down to the sword by the command of God. Even today, many have never heard of Jesus around the world. During the time of the apostolic Church, the Spirit would direct Paul or the others to different sections and told them not to go to other sections, depriving them of the gospel. So not all human beings are treated the same. Some are born with the gospel others never hear the gospel.

"On a more serious note, how are things going with your children. I know that you are trying to win them to christ, i have been praying for you."

Why should you pray to God for my family? You believe in free will. If they have free will, you should be praying to them, to use their free will. You believe God cannot force them, but He can wait to see if they will ever want Him. So stop praying to God. In your mind He cannot help my family. They can only help themselves.

There is a difference when you spend a like a drunken sailor when there is a lot of money in his saving account, or none saved up.

The first is an idiot and stupid.
The 2nd is insane, careless and criminal.

Tolerant of sinners: YES
Tolerance of sin: NO

Love is having the best interest of another person at heart, with the goal of salvation

True love is speaking the truth. Liberals equate love with tolerance of sin, which is actually quite the opposite of what love really is. No where in the Bible does God teach tolerance of sin. Interestingly, the people who preach tolerance are usually the most intolerant people you'll ever meet.

Love seems to be a rather hateful topic to some.

"Eros" does not appear in the New Testament, or any of its derivatives. I looked. Thanks.

Good question, love.wins.

There are on-line Bibles in many languages where you could look this up.

One is called Biblegateway.

Does the Greek word "Eros" appear in the New Testament, or any of its derivatives?
---Love.wins on 6/2/13


Actually, in ancient Greek literature, "agape," "filia", and "eros" are used interchangeably.

Agape...."I'll love you regardless of you attitude towards me...."
Philo...."I'll love you as long as you love me."
Eros....emotional type love. (For example: "I love chocolate ice cream."

good post, wivv.

Out of curiosity, are those from a lexicon or word study dictionary, or from your own studies?

I've thought agape and phileo a little differently. Here's what I wrote a couple of years ago:

\\ phileo is probably best expressed as "love like I love myself"

Agape denotes affection, actively. Probably best expressed as "love with all I have" \\

There are three words in the Koine Greek used at the time of Christ. One of the words for love used in the Bible is Agape, this is the type of love that means, "I'll love you regardless of you attitude towards me or how you treat me." This is really a Christian type of love. A second type used in the Bible is Philo love. This means, "I'll love you as long as you love me." The third type is Eros love - which is the emotional type love. (For example: "I love chocolate ice cream." These forms of love, used in proper context, have very little influence on universalism.

Love has no boundaries, but relationships do

Luke 10:27
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind, and thy neighbour as thyself.

John 13:35
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

1 Corinthians 13:13
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Both Jesus and Paul "pushed love", and their teachings are the foundations upon which Christian belief is based.
