Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.~ Romans 12:9

Yesterday I wrote a message to the Christians in Neo-Nazi group that as true Christians, we are called by Jesus to love one another. That God created all people equally. There’s only one race, the Human Race and we all are a part of it.

But the other group involved in the protest and rioting was wrong in what they did. The Neo-Nazi group – however wrong their beliefs, had a right to peacefully protest and march to the courthouse. The protesters – and there were Jews and Christians, among others, were also wrong. They instigated the fight and hated just as much as the Neo-Nazi group.

What they should have done is not try to stop them, but stand on the sidewalks with their signs and maybe hand them water.

Jesus told us to love our enemies. (Matthew 5:43-44, Luke 6:35-36)

Paul wrote:“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. Romans 12:19-21

Overcome evil with good. So simple. Why is it so hard to obey? Kill ‘em with kindness, people.

About Giselle Aguiar

WWJD? The question we should ask ourselves every time we're facing a decision, when we're confronted, angry, shocked, frustrated, annoyed, impatient or panicked. What would Jesus say? What would Jesus write? We can wear the WWJD? bracelets and display the stickers, but do we walk the walk? Christians should strive to be like Christ. When the first WWJD? movement started, there was no social networking and viral meant the flu. Today, we have the means and opportunity to revive the WWJD? movement and make a difference in this world.
