What if, in God’s economy, America’s existence is simply to illustrate further that there is no way to live peacefully on this earth apart from an adherence to Biblical Theology; and that because there will never be one hundred percent conformance to Biblical Theology on this earth, we are destined to be a world of war, poverty, and discontent?
What if we, who do comply to the best of our abilities to Biblical Theology, were to simply embrace this notion and each other and move about through this world sowing authentic love in the Spirit of Christ; while patiently waiting for his return? For Him to set all to right?
I know, according to Biblical Theology, that we have a responsibility to be good stewards of the gifts we have received and to be sharers. I know that America is a gift in the sense that we are enabled to worship here- free from persecution for our beliefs; and I do wish to cherish and protect this gift, and to share it with others, as this is loving.
Shouldn’t we be able to both protect and share in a manner that is loving? All of God’s stipulations for us are summed up in one commandment: Love God. And the second is like the first, in other words, if we are doing the first it will follow that we will be doing the second; we will love ourselves in the same manner that God loves us and we will love everyone else that way too! Those who love God follow His commandments.
And what is love? Love is sacrifice. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.
