In the spirit of Paul at the Aeropagus, it would have been better to respond with love and ... Gospel tracts.
Unbelievers and fleshy Christians repay evil for evil...hate for hate.
Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. - 1 Peter 3:9
"But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. - Luke 6:27-28
"If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. - Luke 6:32-33
THCBCC, if thou are without sin, fell free to cast that first stone. But as for me, I say they are in as much need of Christ as I am...for I need Him every hour. May He grant them life as He granted me life.
No, Jim, they certainly don't. Not to excuse what some see as offensive behavior, but once people get pushed too far, they push back. Does one offense begat another? Sometimes. It is the very nature of sin to spread.
Meanwhile, Epshesians 2 shows the middle wall of separation brought down by faith in Jesus Christ who reconciles vertically and horizontally. But with new hearts and the increasing impact of the Holy Spirit, the rainbow gets returned to its proper sign of God's promise to sustain the world until the end.
And ANTIFA arenâ€™t just communistâ€”they are an armed violent faction. Think of Hitlers brown shirts for Socialism. The fact is, THAT is the group that scares me the most right now, because the media ISNT saying much about them. It wasnâ€™t that long back they were assaulting people in Oregon, and then had a â€śpeacefulâ€ť organized group with masks and AKâ€™s in Kansas.
I guarantee you, their will be lbgtq re-education camps for the felons who raised the stars and bars- extreme behavior on one end brings about extreme behavior on the other. Maybe â€ś twisty the trans clownâ€ť can give pointers on how to avoid police detection on prior offenses when reading at a library.
Missouri was known as "The Mother of Outlaws" during the Civil War. Tit-for-tat attacks by one family against another or a ruthless powergrab by the local bully created a number of notable guerillas. Unlike Major John Mosbey who harried Union forces in Northern Virginia, these men were out purely for blood and often found it.
Stirring up their descendents may not bring about the best outcome. Not something I'd personally recommend.
Meanwhile, Missouri is a pretty good homeschooling state according to HSLDA. Parents there would do well to avoid the battles over flags, rebel against the machine, and raise their children themselves in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
