No. No we cannot. That is why we have to work at it and why it takes so much time working at it to make the progress, little or lasting, that we do.
Think about our Savior, Jesus Christ, the one perfect individual to have walked upon the earth and all that he had to endure. He was perfect. And still, people did not get along with him.
Imagine Christ in our world today. Oh wait. Yeah, the Judeo-Christian values are what triggers the need for #SafeSpaces and claims of #HateSpeech today. Nevermind.
Additional Reading: On a lighter note…
If you followed me on Twitter or Facebook today you saw that I mostly posted quotes from speakers at the General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If you ask me which was my favorite quote or talk it would be impossible to choose just one. Each speaker has something wonderful to preach and teach regarding the Word of God.
What I can tell you is that 1) this conference was really wonderful and 2) the power of the Word was directed in a way I have not felt before (and I say that after every conference). The Spirit was pointed, powerful, and perfectly placed over me in a way that I felt strengthened, edified, and called to make changes in my life so that I can become a better disciple of Christ.
Yeah. I have a lot to work on. Thank God for His Beloved Son, my Brother, Jesus the Christ and his Atoning Sacrifice. I have Hope. I have Faith. And yes, I am working on that Charity-thing.
