35. Well said. If you call yourself a vegetarian but you eat meat . . .
Are you a vegetarian? It's what's inside, not what's on the label.

The ultimate criteria for being a Christian is being loving. How do we know that? Because, in the Bible, Jesus says as much. So those who pray for another Christian's untimely death can call themselves whatever they want - Jesus' words contradict them.

"By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."

"Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble."

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."
