"Preach the Gospel at all times. When necessary, use words."

It's better to be a witness by your action, then to argue over words.

One can be free from sin, but without love it means nothing at all.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-2dKOfbC9c

If I sing but don't have love
I waste my breath with every song
I bring an empty voice, a hollow noise
If I speak with a silver tongue
Convince a crowd but don't have love
I leave a bitter taste with every word I said

Love is a living, breathing thing. It's a Savior come to life, a deed done from the heart, a word that saved the world.

It's the Good News of freedom in Jesus Christ. The shackles of the Bible are cast off and Love becomes the freedom in which we live.
Quote:
Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.”…
Matt. 22:37-40


When you quote these words, fundamentalists are sure to come back with "But------." Everything that follows their "but" is a lie and does nothing but spit in the face of Jesus.

Do you allow yourself to have any conversation that does not include scripture?



"Those people." They are not those people. They are neighbors, friends, co-workers, brothers, and sisters.

You are not being put upon by immoralities.



Would you refuse life saving help from a Pagan? A Muslim? LGBTQ?

My hero. If you (or anyone else) would like to read more about Franciscan theology, this is a good book:

It is a belief of us vs. them. Christians are not suppose to get cozy with children of the devil. However, if it so happens one of these devils IS a medic, well, go ahead, save my life if I am in danger.

No, that is not true at all. There are many who dedicate their entire lived preaching the Gospel to those who you call the children of the devil, while others help in other ways.
