Don't know if anyone else has said so, but Netflix has this awesome show. My whole family loves it: it's the one show all of us can agree on.

I had to check the calendar when I heard, but it's a month too early for a joke this bad. God bless Andrew Breitbart's family and his legacy.

Kirk, I can totally relate. You said, "Hard for me to imagine, but I am now 41. Amazing. It seems like yesterday my poofy mullet and parachute pants were all the rage, and Prince had a #1 hit on the radio." For me, it seems like yesterday I had a total crush on you and your mullet. :>) I'm glad to see that my teenage heartthrob has grown up to be a real man. God bless you and your family in this endeavor.

I find it interesting that you skipped verse 11: "Fools give full vent to their rage,
but the wise bring calm in the end."

"There's a saying that the Devil can quote scripture. Is there a part where he hoists himself upon his own petard?"

Yes. The Devil is self-destructive. He knows Scripture very well and must know the end God has planned for him, yet he refuses to repent. Unfortunately, in the meantime, he is the Great Deceiver and many people, even some who claim to be Christians, have swallowed his lies.

No one said anything about not condemning evil. Just the opposite--if you love someone you must lovingly point out the error of their ways if at all possible. "Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted." Galatians 6:1.

And, because I love you, I must remind you that you need to be careful how you speak. You apparently claim to be a Christian, and, as a bearer of Christ's name, you must be a careful witness to those who are unsaved. Remember the words of Peter: "Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. For, 'Whoever would love life and see good days must keep his tongue from evil and his lips from deceitful speech.'" I Peter 3:8-10.

I pray you will give your anger to God and allow Him to be the bearer of justice. Don't forget the words of Paul in Romans 12: "Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord. On the contrary: 'If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.' Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

Actually, we're supposed to love everybody. First, we love God: "Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." Deuteronomy 6:5.

Then we are to love all Christians (our brothers): "We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death." I John 3:14.

Thirdly, we're commanded to love our enemies: "But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked." Luke 6:35.

Lastly, if we encounter anyone not fitting into the above categories, that would be a neighbor, and, yes, we are commanded to love them also: "The entire law is summed up in a single command: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'" Galatians 5:14.

The passage you quote from II Timothy 3 commands us to stay away from truly wicked people who would pretend to be Christians but are not. However, that does not excuse our responsibility to love them. Given, we can't be friends with them or hang out with them, but we can and ought to pray for them.
