"Love Your Enemies, Really?" - 9-13-2021
This week on Monday Main Point, Jonathan, Blake, and Jeff discuss what it means to "love our enemies" as they take a deeper look at Jesus' words in Matt. 5.43-45.  They address the question, "Does the Christian have any enemies?"  They talk about what Jesus meant when He told His followers that He did not come to bring peace but a sword.  And they converse with each other about the cultural implications of these unconventional words of Jesus concerning our enemies -- especially in light of terroristic events like 9-11 and the current situation in Afghanistan.
