Love God, Love The World.
Love of God and love of the world are not mutually exclusive.
Love of God and the ‘world systems maybe, but that another blog for another time!!
If we say we love God we have no choice but to love the world, warts and all!!
We don’t get to be selective.
I was wandering the streets of Alice Springs some years ago when a group of Aboriginal kids approached me asking if I was Father Christmas!! After chatting with them and a others of their mob, I was approached by a anglo saxon man, just like me and reprimanded for socialising with ‘those people’.
On further discussion with this man I discovered he would prefer ‘those people’ would dissapear.
We agreed to disagree and move on.
Love of God and ‘Those People’ are not mutually exclusive.
