[For A Practitioner Of Love And Compassion, An Enemy Is One Of The Most Important Teachers. Without An Enemy You Cannot Practice Tolerance, And Without Tolerance You Cannon Build A Sound Basis Of Compassion. So In Order To Practice Compassion, You Should Have An Enemy.When You Face Your Enemy Who Is Going To Hurt You, That Is The Real Time To Practice Tolerance. Therefore, An Enemy Is The Cause Of The Practice Of Tolerance; Tolerance Is The Effect Or Result Of An Enemy. So Those Are Cause And Effect. As Is Said, "Once Something Has The Relationship Of Arising From That Thing, One Cannot Consider That Thing From Which It Arises As A Harmer; Rather It Assists The Production Of The Effect.]

Quotes About Reformed Theology

"My concern with this is not about who owns the trademark. If a label is used chiefly to lionize "us" and demonize "them," wed be better off without it. Rather, my concern is that the richness and breadth of Reformed faith and practice are being reduced to a few doctrines. In the process, even those doctrines lose much of their supporting rationale. In fact, their meaning changes at crucial points. For example, I believe that the doctrine of election is inextricably bound up with covenant theology and with the covenantal life that is shaped in the New Testament by the means of grace. As I have argued, even "eternal security" is different from the doctrine of perseverance." - Author: Michael S. Horton

Quotes About Females And Relationships

"Dominator culture teaches all of us that the core of our identity is defined by the will to dominate and control others. We are taught that this will to dominate is more biologically hardwired in males than in females. In actuality, dominator culture teaches us that we are all natural-born killers but that males are more able to realize the predator role. In the dominator model the pursuit of external power, the ability to manipulate and control others, is what matters most. When culture is based on a dominator model, not only will it be violent but it will frame all relationships as power struggles." - Author: Bell Hooks
