As most of my friends know, I am a Christian (a follower of Jesus). As that is stated I ask that all people be it Christian, Jew, atheist et al; Please extend love to the Muslim people! I am weary of reports of anti-Muslim vandalism etc. Remember that we are ALL created in the image of God. And retaliation of this sort is simply ungodly and illegal! Vigilantism is anti-productive. Reports of mosques being torched in Canada is already being reported! Jesus said: Love your enemies as yourself! Don’t let emotionalism get the better of you! Amen
It is something that Christians, followers of Jesus must keep in mind even though it is difficult sometimes…
Matthew 5:43-48 (NASB)
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48 Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Yes the persecution and injustices are happening as prophesied by Jesus, however the best apologetic that a follower of Jesus Christ can do is LOVE YOUR ENEMY! Plain and simple.
