The Bastardization of Love??

Whole societies cannot love whole societies, unless love first begins and acts in a singular heart.
Love is a thing of beauty, and of spiritual purpose, not a tossed-about bone of hypocrisy that looks good in letters on signs used in the six o’clock news.

Our ability to love is how we human beings share in God’s divinity. How we carry out that ability has a great consequence.

Love is not meant to be denigrated, not meant to be used for a lesser, and yes, hateful purpose. Love is purpose, itself, and it can only be had within the context of TRUTH.

Truth without love is brutality, and love without truth is hypocrisy. –Warren W. Wiersbe 

The way the word Love is being used today is a bastardization of TRUTH. A bastardization of our Creator, our God. The true, sacred meaning of love is being debased by those who are anything but loving, and only use the word in a self-interested way.

Is it loving to scream and spit at a fellow human being because you don’t agree with him/her?
Is it loving to set out to destroy another person?
Is it loving to demolish what belongs to others?
Is it loving to misconstrue (lie about) events for your own personal gratification, or personal agendas?

This is not love.
This is sin–Love’s opposite.
This is puffed-up self-importance, when there is only one way, and it is MY way.

An election was held. The majority ruled.

Misplaced pride and unwillingness to play fairly will not only back-fire, it will greatly harm America.

Half the harm that is done in this world
Is due to people who want to feel important.
― T.S. Eliot, The Cocktail Party

Right now, the water is wide between two factions in our country, but TRUE LOVE, not hypocrisy, is our boat, the vessel which will carry us across the ocean of our differences.
