Love What God Loves?
Christians must weigh this distinction: legislating morality vs. addressing the root immorality is a comparison (at minimum) between mere “salt and light” effect (which is good, especially for the immediate life in this tent, earth) and REAL HEART TRANSFORMATION which is only possible thru Jesus (which is great and ESSENTIAL for whatever permanent dwelling is ours after this immediate life)….
Dare I ask? Is our energy being wasted on what is surely passing away just so our OWN lives might be more comfortable, today? And to the degree this might be true, how do we gain an eternal perspective, and LOVE our neighbors enough to desire their eternal LIFE and relationship w/God MORE than our own comfort/protection/status quo?!
What about our efforts and passions would look different if we love what God loves, as WELL as we think we hate what he hates??
