"When Jesus said, 'Love your enemies, I think he probably meant don't kill them." K.I.S.S.* RE-WRITE OF "THE BUMPERSTICKER SONG" concept and original song by Linda K. Williams, San Diego Church of the Brethren www.SDBrethren.org New Lyrics co-written with Kathy Fry-Miller, Jan and John Long, and Maren McCourt 7-8-09 (*K.I.S.S.= Keep it Simple, Sweetie!)
1 When Jesus said, "Love your enemies" (3x) I think he probably meant, "Don't kill them!"
2 "Blessed are the peacemakers" --- that's what Jesus said! (3x) Jesus was the great pacifist.
3 Everything that's done in the waging of war (3x) is the opposite of Jesus and his love.
4 Does that mean all war is sin? That's what we believe! (3x) So let's study war no more!
5 God wants us to love our enemies as neighbors. (3x) God wants us to love them as ourselves.
6 God has no chosen people---- no "them" and "us" (3x) The circle of God's love draws all in.
7 We will overcome evil with good (3x) 'cause that's the Jesus way! ... yes, that's the Jesus way!
(Verses A, B, and C not recorded 7-3-10; would work in logically after verse 4): A. (We'll be) non-confrontational but unapologetic (3x; "We'll be" doesn't get repeated) about our views. B. We'll bless and pray for those who mistreat us, 3x as followers of Christ. C. "An eye for an eye" doesn't mean "Revenge is sweet!" 3x That was God's way of limiting payback.
