In Christ's Own Words

Yes, it's true. Christ said that if we only love those who are like us then we aren't Christians:

"For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
"If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?"
Matthew 5:46-47

Hi, but that isn't in the book of Romans, so for born again Christians it's not really the heart of the gospel.

I heard you on the radio show and was able to listen for about 1 hour and 20 minutes- up through the second caller. I think you did a good job of making your point and "giving as good as you got." I would only mention something that pertains to when the host said during the discussion with one of the callers something to the effect that, "Well there will always be problems with human institutions and there is nothing we can do about that." You were a bit harsh when you said that such a sentiment is one of the worst things you have ever heard because, and I paraphrase, while God rules in Kingdom of Heaven, we have to improve our situation on Earth and we are responsible for our situation here. While I agree with you, somethings condemning somebody can harden them in their positon.
