Last night as a family we watched a movie called  "The boy in the striped pajama's".  The theme centers on a relationship between two eight year old boys, one a jew living in a concentration camp, and one the son of the Nazi soldier in charge of the camp.   It is a very powerful and emotional story. 

As I watched the tears of emotion on the face of my 14 year old daughter and wife, I questioned the logic of making such a movie.  But as we discuss the movie together as a family, I became strongly aware of how close hatred is in all of us.  As long as we live with the flesh of our old self, we are capable of such hate.  The closes thing I can possibly relate it to in today's world might be opinions of people towards people from Arabic Countries or Homosexuals.  It is not for me to judge, but only to love as Christ loves me.

We serve a creator and we are His created.  If we breath then we are His created, regardless of color, race, sex or choices.

I Timothy 1:15, "It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all."
