    SHOULD WE BE LOVING AND GENTLE WITH OUR WORDS LIKE CHRIST WAS?

    Christ instructed us to "love thy neighbor" and "take up His cross"

    those are commands,not suggestions
    so,yes,we need to be loving and gentle with our words like Christ was---even to those that are unlovable and alittle rough around the edges(those are that cross we are to bear)

    as you delve into God's Word(the bible)it becomes very easy to do
    and you'll get much,much closer to God

    Wouldn't the world be a better place if we did? Personally, I believe that those who claims to be Christian should do their best to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. To do otherwise is hypocrisy.

    Jesus was loving and gentile when it furthered the Kingdom of God.
    Jesus was direct and to the point and in your face when it furthered the kingdom of God.

    -IE:  Calling the Religeous leaders "White washed tombs"

    I think that we should be truthful and as much as possible be kind.  There are biblical instances (as with the money changers in the temple) when Jesus lost his temper.  By and large his words are about love, community and peace.  Not a bad philosophy to follow.

    We are to emulate Christ in ALL he did. He was loving, and gentle in actions and in words most of the time, Jesus is stated to have visited the Temple in Jerusalem, Herod's Temple, at which the courtyard is described as being filled with livestock and the tables of the money changers, who changed the standard Greek and Roman money for Jewish and Tyrian money, which were the only coinage that could be used in Temple ceremonies According to the Gospels, Jesus took offense to this (extorting profit from the people to hear the word of God), and so, creating a whip from some cords, drives out the money changers, and turns over their tables, and those of the people selling doves Matthew[21:13] And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. Now if we are talking about defending the House of God, is it alright to drive out those who physically defile it using aggression? We are also told to obey the Laws of the Land! The Laws of the Land, say NO. So I say NO. If we are talking about speaking the TRUTH firmly in defense of yourself, or of God, I say yes as long as you do not swear, demean, malign, or are guilty of it yourself!

    In Matthew 5:44, Jesus says, "But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in Heaven, for He makes His sun rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." When we walk with Christ, His light shines within us. Others notice something different about us. Soon they desire to have the same and souls are saved! Yes we are to follow in His footsteps sharing the Gospel with love and kindness even with those who despise us. Christ died on the cross for ALL sinners.

    It depends, you don't want to be meek and humble all the time, that's an invitation for bad people to enter your life, be meek and humble naturally, but be strong and aggressive if you have to be=)
