Love your enemy… but also try to know your enemy

and those who do not put their money into their pockets they declared  WAR against them..

(Micah 3:5 KJV)  Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.

(Mat 10:36 KJV)  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

One of the greatest Christian author’s in the world, Author of Pilgrim’s Progress, the english book second to the Bible its seems, John Bunyan the preacher,   his own wife did not go along with him.. or for certainty the Pilgrim’s own wife he wrote about..

(Prov 22:6 KJV)  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it

As a mature , honest, decent adult senior, I like to speak from my real insights, experiences and not as a pretender on the net.
 
 People with low self-esteem tend to live in a closed system that is hard to break. Because they have difficulty admitting negatives, either about themselves or their behavior, it is hard to reach them. It is especially difficult for someone with low self-esteem who is defensive or in denial to admit that they are afraid.  http://www.getnewvisions.com/se/03crse_symptoms.html

Now why is it some persons do like to control slander others, gossip about them, and  try to dominate, bully, bash or influence others?

Is  it really just cause they have a poor self image, and as a result crave attention upon, for themselves or what? Or do  they feel that bashing others makes themselves feel temporally better, but that quickly dissipates anyway  and they have to do so more bashing?

Or is just cause they  do not know any better and perform  all these immoral acts ? They come from real troubled homes, bad upbringing and they are searching for love, acceptance  the wrong way.. even because their parents now have done a really bad job in bringing them up, in raising them properly to face life, hold a job, hold a marriage etc?

At what point are do they no longer have an excuse, have reached an age of personal  accountably for their own actions and cannot any longer blame others, their parents, past  teachers, administrators, society in general  and now they have  to be personally fully accountable rather for their actions?

 IT IS NOW MORE  RARE BUT I DO ALSO NOW STILL GET BULLIED BY RELIGIOUS BULLIES, ABUSERS TOO..  
 
The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant  bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons  who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” ..  clearly these immoral  Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth,  most likely related to past unresolved guilt, as a result  of  that   the bully, he or she, tries falsely to   build  their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against  his proclaimed enemies, which too often also  is most people , for  he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt,  and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others.  I have seen this type of wrong behavior not just in bad managers, bad politicians, bad persons, but  in alcoholics, and most often in Albertan rednecks ,but also  in religious   fundamentals evangelicals who promote hated towards Pentecostal Christians as well, and  now as well as the crooked pastor wrongfully  fighting for control over others. Public exposure and prosecution of these bad persons here too services everyone’s best interest.

4 thoughts on “Love your enemy… but also try to know your enemy”

  1. In what way did Bunyan’s wife not go along with him? His first wife, Mary, was very godly and his second wife married him in the midst of him getting in legal trouble (and arrested) for preaching, sounds like she went along with him to me!!

  2. Be careful how you interpret history…

    “biography in part” means just that, in PART! It cannot be used to determine whether his wives actually supported him. He may have used the lives of other people he knew (or the Bible) for the other PART.

    As well, without knowing the source about having no information about his wives I would have to believe the source with information about his wives (seeing as I know there are sources from where that information comes from)

  3. Love your enemy… but also try to know your enemy and those who do not put their money into their pockets they declared WAR against them..

    >>> In what way did Bunyan’s wife not go along with him? His first wife, Mary, was very godly and his second wife married him in the midst of him getting in legal trouble (and arrested) for preaching, sounds like she went along with him to me!!

    Thanks for the reply, and comments. I think you have the common abbreviated biographies of his wives, which does not agree with all of the the material I have read.. we both have had to reply on others for our sources of facts.

    John Bunyan 1648 Marries first wife, who was an orphan. “I changed my condition into a married state, and my mercy was to light upon a wife whose father was counted godly. This woman and I, though we came together as poor as poor might be, not having so much household stuff as a dish or spoon betwixt us both, yet this she had for her part, The Plain Man’s Pathway to Heaven, and The Practice of Piety, which her father had left her when he died.” – John Bunyan, from “Grace Abounding”

    Mary Bunyan (c.1625-1656?): First wife of John Bunyan, they were married in 1647. Raised by godly parents, she was an important influence in his conversion to Christ. They had four children, two sons (John and Thomas) and two daughters (Mary and Elizabeth). Mary, born in 1650 was their eldest child and blind.

    Now if Mary who had died 1655 according to some others, and the year she died is contradicted, even that of the death os his second wife too, even one source has said that she Mary was actaully an orphan so tellme how was she raised by Godly parents? possibly second parents? and also how much do we really know about her now? Nothign it seems… there are no real reliable records aboout any his wives it seems. So who is right and who is wrong?

    Elizabeth Bunyan (c.1630-1691?): Second wife of John Bunyan. They were married in 1659, shortly before he was arrested and imprisoned, leaving her to care for his four children by his first wife. During this time he wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress. She traveled to London on several occasions to petition for her husband’s release. They had two children, Sarah and Joseph.

    now we can contrast that with this

    “After leaving the army, probably in 1647 or 1648, John Bunyan married, but no record of his first marriage has yet been found, and both the Christian and the family name of his wife are unknown. John Bunyan.. “converted and joined his wife’s church, becoming in 1655 Nonconformist preacher in Bedford. During this time he published two works, Some Gospel Truths Opened (1656) and A Vindication (1657)”

    if the family name of his wife are unknown how could one even say if her parents were spiritual or not?

    “The four years following his marriage were the period of the intense spiritual struggles which Bunyan records in the autobiography, written many years later, entitled Grace Abounding. It was this experience which made it possible for him to write The Pilgrim’s Progress. His pathway to the New Life was the same that the Pilgrim trod. He knew the Valley of Humiliation, and the Valley of the Shadow of Death; he had lain in the dungeons of Doubting Castle; and he finally overcame Giant Despair. He felt himself to be a great sinner and constantly stood in fear of the wrath of God, yet many of the sins of which he accuses himself seem at least venial. ”

    so for a start most of this itself now makes it difficult to say if she the first a or second wife were spiritual or not? and still Pilgrim’s progress published in 1678 was a supposed personal biography in part? and clearly Pilgrim’s wife did not support him… true or false? No answer?

    (Mat 10:36 KJV) And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.

    It does not say might be, can be.. but it says will be..

    One of the greatest Christian author’s in the world, Author of Pilgrim’s Progress, the english book second to the Bible its seems, John Bunyan the preacher, his own wife did not go along with him.. or for certainty the Pilgrim’s own wife he wrote about..

    Sadly I know from my own real experiences that After a person dies he tends to be too often falsely exalted as a saint by some next even though in reality he was a demon still on earth.. cause you are not to speak ill of the dead? nor are you to lie.

    One way or the other.. Yes, there is only conjecture, speculation as to their actual supposed spirituality.. there is no accurate source for ANY OF John Bunyan’s wives actual spirituality except John Bunyan SUPPOSEDLY himself who is dead.. no other writers.. .. and he John Bunyan was no saint in his marriage with his first wife Mary too undeniably.. secondly it is generally accepted that John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s progress was about his own spiritual journey so I have to assume it was still that of his own wife’s now too, after all this great preacher was not a LIAR FOR SURE… he like me wrote about things he knew and experienced..

    now about Kind David’s wife (2 Sam 6:12 KJV) And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness. 13 And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings. 14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod. 15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet. 16 And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart. 17 And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD. 18 And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts. 19 And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house. 20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself! 21 And David said unto Michal, It was before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: therefore will I play before the LORD. 22 And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour. 23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death.

    and Job’s wife too.. (Job 2:10 KJV) But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

    and we have Lot’s bad wife.. but there is no direct biblical condemnation now about Lot..
    (Luke 17:32 KJV) Remember Lot’s wife.

    (Luke 17:33 KJV) Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    (Luke 17:34 KJV) I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

    Great spiritual men who clearly had bad wives but still they were not a reflection on the husband personally!

    (Lev 21:7 KJV) They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane; neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto his God.

    A great prophet had even married and slept with a prostitute at God’s command..

    (Hosea 1:2 KJV) The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD.

    Is that not so? No Answer again?
