Every true believer has a choice about whether to live in love or hatred.

Every true believer has a choice about whether to live in fear, isolation and behind walls, or inside of an attitude of acceptance, giving and sharing with all.

What did God and Jesus Christ teach his followers about which way to go?

Let's go deeper....

2. Deuteronomy 10:19 - You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

7. Matthew 25:40 - Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren you did it to me.

8. Job 29:15-17 - I was eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame. I was a father to the needy, and I championed the cause of the stranger. I broke the fangs of the unrighteous, and made them drop their prey from their teeth.

9. Leviticus 19:34 - The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

10. Leviticus 27:19 - ‘Cursed is anyone who withholds justice from the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow.’ Then all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’

11. 1 Chronicles 16:19-22 - When they were few in number, of little account, and strangers in the land, wandering from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another people, he allowed no one to oppress them; he rebuked kings on their account, saying, ‘Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.’

12. Zechariah 7:9-10 -  Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another; do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.

13. Matthew 5:43-44 - You have heard that it was said, ‘you shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy’. But I say to you, love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you.

14. Matthew 25:35 - I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.

15. Psalm146:9 - The Lord watches over the strangers; he upholds the orphan and the widow, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.

17. Ezekiel 47:22 - You shall allot it as an inheritance for yourselves and for the aliens who reside among you and have begotten children among you. They shall be to you as citizens of Israel; with you they shall be allotted an inheritance among the tribes of Israel.

18. Luke 10:27 - You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.

19. Acts 10:34 - Then Peter began to speak to them: “I truly understand that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.

20. Romans 12:13 - Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.

21. Romans 13:8 - Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.

22. Romans 13:10 - Love does no wrong to a neighbor, therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

23. Colossians 3:11 - In that renewal there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all.

24. Hebrews 13:1-3 - Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured.

25. 3 John 1:5 - Beloved, you do faithfully whatever you do for the friends, even though they are strangers to you; they have testified to your love before the church. You do well to send them on in a manner worthy of God; for they began their journey for the sake of Christ, accepting no support from non-believers. Therefore we ought to support such people, so that they may become co-workers with the truth.

26. Revelation 21:3 - And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “See the home of God is among mortals. He will dwell with them as their God; they will be his peoples, and God himself will be with them.”

27. Matthew 7:12 In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets..

28. Matt.22 Verses 34 to 40 - Bible, King James Version [37] Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [38] This is the first and great commandment. [39] And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. [40] On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

[43] Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
[44] But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
[45] That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
[46] For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
[47] And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?


Wouldn't you agree that neighbors include those across any man made borders? A higher power did not create borders and artificial divisions such as race, religion, politics, or skin color; man did that.

47 Bible Verses about Loving Your Neighbor

Wouldn't you agree that 'enemies' can become friends, depending on time, space, and circumstances? Communist China, Vietnam and Soviet Russia used to be the worst 'enemy'. Now they are the best friends of the US. Our worst enemies of the past are now in many cases our best friends. A higher power knows this and urges us to love even our 'enemies', because they are in fact, possibly our best friends, if only we open our hearts and minds to them. 

30 Bible Verses about Loving Your Enemies

If we harbor hatred in our hearts, and do not forgive others, it only harms us, not the target of our hatred. Forgiveness is essential for our survival and health.

Things keep changing in life.Life and our natural state of being consists of constant never ending change. 

Just because we started with one belief system due to family, culture, tradition, etc, does not mean we are stuck there forever. 

Maybe we have evolved or grown and changed into another belief system, without even realizing it.

Take a self test. Find out if your belief system matches where you spend your time..
