Blinded

Kindred,

Have you ever heard of the expression blinded by jealousy?  

It has been scientifically studied that when a person is made to be jealous that person cannot spot targets on a computer. 

Though there are other expressions where someone can be "blinded" (like love which refers to giving up too much of yourself to relationship or chances are it is not real love), the one expression where it is referenced in the bible is, blinded by hate.  

"But if we hate others, we are in the darkness; we walk in it and do not know where we are going, because the darkness has made us blind."  
                               - 1 John 2:11


Hate divides our souls and separates us from our hearts, the Holy Spirit and humanity. 

One of the requirements for salvation is obeying the Commandments of Christ to love the Lord with all your heart, and with all soul, and all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.

To hate would be to disobey the Lord and risk salvation, because hatred causes blindness in darkness, it becomes impossible for the hater to see Heaven's Gate.
      



Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
