A Lost Religion?

Let love be with­out hypocrisy.

Abhor what is evil.

Cling to what is good.

Be kind­ly affec­tion­ate to one anoth­er with broth­er­ly love, in hon­or giv­ing pref­er­ence to one anoth­er; not lag­ging in dili­gence, fer­vent in spir­it, serv­ing the Lord; rejoic­ing in hope, patient in tribu­la­tion, con­tin­u­ing stead­fast­ly in prayer; dis­trib­ut­ing to the needs of the saints, giv­en to hospitality.

Bless those who per­se­cute you; bless and do not curse.

Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.

Be of the same mind toward one another.

Do not set your mind on high things, but asso­ciate with the humble.

Do not be wise in your own opinion.

Repay no one evil for evil.

Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.

If it is pos­si­ble, as much as depends on you, live peace­ably with all men.

Beloved, do not avenge your­selves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is writ­ten, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

There­fore “If your ene­my is hun­gry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”

Do not be over­come by evil, but over­come evil with good.

Romans 12:9–21, NKJV
