Bearing arms spreads hate.
April 3, 2016
The bearing of arms due to hate is not an appropriate response, for it does not eliminate the hate—it spreads it. God’s characteristics, if you wish to so label them, obviously are not in the company of those who spread hate by force. The development of humankind toward a more spiritual focus takes an eternity, but the development nevertheless is moving forward. There will always be acts of aggression and hate, negative activities, in all societies, for that is indeed a part of what it means to live as a human being in that society. But working with negativism in society, you can make a noticeable difference in the power of God’s presence by reflecting upon your own perceptions of how God would respond to a situation.
