    Question: As a Christian in America is it politics or the teachings of scripture which rules your attitudes or beliefs?
    Question: Is there any group of people you despise?
    Examples:
    Christians
    Evangelicals
    Conservatives
    Cults
    Liberals
    Republicans
    Democrats
    Moslems
    Race
    Abortionist
    Illegal aliens

    If so, consider them as if a Roman centurion in 1st century Galilee or Samaria and have the attitude of the Lord Jesus or the Apostle Peter. Yes, these sought out Jesus and Peter.
    However, the Lord Jesus sent his followers to “make-disciples-of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to keep all that I commanded you (Matthew 28) and not just to Jews who sought Jesus.
