Consider this: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers’

Fearful of malice, this Christian president beseechingly seeks favor to assail those he declares evil.

Curious as to what was taught by the first Christian and his viewpoint on how to be with others. I did a bit of reading in their standard text and found the following for your consideration:

“Blessed are the peacemakers, agree with your adversary, do not resist an evil person, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, pray for those who persecute you, do not worry about your life, do not worry about tomorrow, do not hate, whatever you want from others – do for them, judge not.”

And lastly, “Little children keep yourselves from idols.”
