Thread starter VirginiaHuguenot Start date Dec 21, Status Not open for further replies. VirginiaHuguenot Puritanboard Librarian. The reasons that may induce us are: 1. Equality, the actual equality of all men by nature, who were all made by the same God, and all made of one blood.

Diversity of rank does not take away identity of nature. Hath not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother? Did not He that made me in the womb, make him? And did not one fashion us in the womb? Why is more due to you than them? Consider also the possible equality of all men, as to their condition and state of life.

Before we go out of the body there may be strange changes in the world, and God may make us as low as others. We are to imitate God as children do Love in manton father Matthew Now God loves all His creatures and hates none. The more we imitate God, the more we know we are children of our Father who is in heaven. God has so cast the world that sometimes we need the help of others as they need ours, that by mutual necessities and a combination of interests the world may be upheld.

Love in manton

As in the natural body no member can say to any, "I have no need of thee," so also has God disposed it in the great frame of mankind that we may have a mutual care for one another 1 Corinthians As He requires from every man a respect for the world of mankind, so He has turned all the respects of the world of mankind upon one man. We would be glad to be loved of all the men in the world if we could bring it to pass; and surely we may the better expect it if we have this love for all the world.

Why should we love strangers? By "strangers" he means those who are far from home, in another place and country, where Love in manton have few friends, and are not well known, especially when exiled for the gospel. We find this in the instances of Abraham and Lot, who were kind to the angels and had their recompense. Abraham's barren wife had a promise of bearing a son to him. Lot had benefit also, being saved from the flames that destroyed Sodom. Surely such a work of mercy shall not go unrewarded. Why should we love enemies? Partly because there is more reason to love them than to hate them, because there are some relics of God's image in them.

And God has forgiven us greater wrongs. We commit a sin against God, or else, upon the apprehension of Love in manton injury done us by man, we are deeper in danger than our enemy. We daily trespass against God more than they can trespass against us. God forgives talents; we cannot forgive pence. God forgives a hundred thousand; we cannot forgive one hundred Matthew We look that God should forgive us, and we will not forgive others. In short, though it is more comfortable to love a friend, it is more honorable to love an enemy.
