Indiana Law — Call for Christians to love

// April 1st, 2015 // Articles

I hear all the time about how Christians think we are being persecuted in America. First of all, this is insulting to those who are truly persecuted — from the early martyrs who were torn apart by lions to the modern day believers being tortured and beheaded by ISIS. Second, we are free to worship, pray, sing, and do just about anything in the United States. Certainly, there are politicians and others who dislike Christianity and even hate it; some of that is our own fault. We are called to love, first and foremost, and yet that is not what we are known for. We are known as those who scream and argue and try to force our beliefs on others through laws. Let us put away these things and truly love others and keep our faith that God himself will protect us and allow us to worship him in this free country that we live in. I call upon you to forget these things that cause strife and instead be a cause of love in the world. I call on you to bake cakes for people you disagree with. I call on you to serve atheists, and people of other sexual preferences, and those of other faiths with equal enthusiasm and above all, love.

God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.  This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.  There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us. — I John 4:16-19
