Gen 1:1 - Luke 6:49
"But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
32 "But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
It is not easy I know but that is what we should all strive for. I read your account of the RNC. It touched me deeply. I know you have been enlightened to something bigger than yourself. I too do not know how Ron Paul could do what he has done for so long. I could tell from your description of the events that you had been overwhelmed by just a small sample of what this man has gone through for 30 years. I know it was a humbling experience for you. The reason I know is I felt it also at the missouri state convention. I found myself shaking hands with people and people talking about issues that to me seemed pure evil. I had many moment where I was talking and shaking hands but really I was almost in another world kind of like in the movies when someone is half in and out of concsiousness (like a haze). I remember hearing myself very clearly in my mind saying, "how does he do this how does he listen to them and just smile and keep on going". I was thinking how discouraged a person must feel to be around these people for a whole day of work and to watch them in their evil activities knowing you cannot stop them. Manny I really do believe this man knows God. I think he has to have a very good relationship with him. I think he is the real deal and a blessing from God. If not how could he do it. I know you know what I mean you've looked the beast in the eyes. It actually sucks the strength right out of you. His integrity is amazing. Peace bro your post have so much heart to them since you got back form the RNC. It's amazing what this man has done to all of us.
