Animosity – Get Rid of It

Message in the picture

“Animosity – Violent hatred leading to active opposition; active enmity; energetic dislike.”

Scripture for the day

Colossians 3:8-11 1770 John Worsley NT (Worsley) But now put away all these also, wrath, animosity, malice, calumny, and filthy discourse out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing ye have put off the old man with his evil practices; 10 and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge, after the image of Him that created him. 11 Wherein there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, or free: but Christ is all and in all.

Thought for the day

The word ‘animosity’ is not part of my vocabulary, but while working on a paper ‘Faults, Sins and Abominations’, I found it merits attention. It is not used in any of the King James versions; many horribly sinful acts are not listed in the Bible e.g., genocide or serial killer, but do not think they are okay. Any violent action resulting from or carried out in hatred cannot reflect a Christian attitude or character. At some point in the near future, I plan to expand on hate and hatred in a Bible study; until then, please continue to allow the Scriptures and Spirit of God guide you—be blessed, Tim.
