  2. Emeasoba George:

    The entire law or scripture is summed up in a single command. Guess what I'm talking about? It is nothing else but LOVE scripture reference (Galatians 5:14). So says the scripture and I'm saying the same thing. You've got to love all and sundry, even if you don't like them. Therefore, do you hate at the expense of love? If yes then, please do away with hatred and kindly replenish yourself with love. For, the call to love all is a divine command which you should strictly adhere to. Yes of course, you should love and never hate. Besides that, God himself first loved us in order for us to love one another in return. Therefore, love all and hate none. -Emeasoba George

    Anything other than free enterprise always means a society of compulsion and lower living standards, and any form of socialism strictly enforced means dictatorship and the total state.
