(God's free gift to all men is life with a call to love.)
True religion teaches: "You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, and with your whole soul, and with your whole mind, and with all your strength, and you must love your neighbour as yourself". (Luke 10:27; Mark 12:29-31)
God, Who has given the gift of life to all men, does not call us to serve Him by hating and
killing our neighbours.
Rather, we must love them; even our enemies. (Matthew 5:44)
Love does not destroy. Love protects, preserves, nurtures, respects and cares for everyone.
There is not one it does not love.
If any of us stops loving, can 'Love Itself' (God) stop loving us? Of course not! Love says, "I love you. I don't want to see you (Fundamentalist Muslim or anyone else) hurt yourself by hating and killing the neighbour you must love. I want you to regain your lost innocence, and love both friend and enemy with a pure heart."
Love can only exist in a heart which refuses to hate; in a heart which freely subjects itself to the 'law of love'. So, we must love one another and teach our children to love. It is hate (not the Fundamentalist) which is our real enemy. Hate has the power to enslave and destroy us all. But if we love, where is the danger for us, for our children and for our world?
To those who hate, (to Fundamentalist Muslims) we must say, "I don't hate you. I may
hate what you do, but I will never hate you. Even if you kill;
I will still love you. I will hate the hate which possesses you, and I will pray to God for you to be delivered from your hate. The end of hate is death. The end of love is eternal life."
I will pray to God that you might come to be filled with such love that it will overflow to all you meet and know, and go on and on overflowing, even to those in the whole world and throughout every age of man from the beginning to the end of time. Such love never ends. This, is God's love for us all! That's what I want for you. And this must be the love we have for one another.
An ideology which can espouse 'fatwa' and 'jihad' does not accord with this love and cannot, therefore, be the true religion. We must become love, loving friend and enemy alike, for our religion to be considered true. The moment has come for the Muslim to learn love and true religion. This is the religion of the Messiah. Hate will be no more. Only love. We must all learn this love. Then, may God's love live in us, and we live in God. Then, may we all be one. All children of God, living in God's family of love. Come. Let us build God's family of love together. Only 'The Way of Love' leads to life. Let us all walk 'The Way' (John 14:6) together.
May God bless us all, and keep us all in His Holy Love.....
