The best Ways to cope with your enemies.


In too many cases, the deliberate and very persistent harmful activities of relatives, estranged spouses, and friends we thought we could trust completely have led to our ruin. It has brought much chaos and pain into our lives.

There is noting so devastatingly destructive as an estranged spouse, relative or friend who has turned to an enemy with full knowledge of all your weaknesses and secrets, all your fears and the precious things you possess in life. They will use it against you and you will be completely defenseless against their ruthless onslaught.

These evil ones come in many forms, shapes, and sizes. They could be entangled spouses, blood relatives, and best friends. For one bitter reason or the other, they change completely to become enemies that do not want your well being and progress in any way. By the fruits of their labor and the words of their tongue, you shall know them!



The Opinions Of Religion Against Enemies


In many religions in the world today, Christianity included, dedicated prayers and curses are invoked upon enemies and evil relatives. The pastors and prophets who lead these religions encourage such practices, which are tantamount to vengeance in the name of God. Islam, in its many sects, teaches direct vengeance on one's enemies, particularly when that enemy falls into the category of unbeliever or infidel.

They all believe that as long as these evil people are not believers, they will never make heaven and so deserve to die.





Recently, in wishing his followers a happy new year, one of the most famous Nigerian pastors, leader of one of The Redeemed Church of God, one largest church in the world, took to social media to to offer a prayer to God on behalf of his followers and all Christians regarding evil relatives and friends. The man of God rained his usual fire and brimstone down on the evil people but lo and behold, who comes to correct him? A woman, a unique Muslim woman.

Najwa Zebian is a Muslim poet and author whose works are to be found on a few Buddhist websites. Najwa had this to say to the lofty man of God who had become one of the richest men on earth through his exploits in religion via his Church. RCCG worldwide.

Never wish them pain, that's not who you are. If they cause you pain, they must have pain inside. Whish them healing instead. That's what they need.

For those of you allowing the religious teaching of worldly men who claim to know God's will, redefine your lifestyle, go figure. The is a poet, a lovely young woman telling a 75-year-old 'prophet the right thing to do before God, I ask you, who is the real godly person here?

Do not wish your enemies evil, particularly if they relatives because their hatred often comes from love. Yes, true love. You may not realize it, but that relative that loves you so much, the ex-spouse, when greatly offended or emotionally wounded, will turn to your most bitter enemy, the kind that cannot go a day without wanting to do you harm.




The Solution Is Love


The ONLY thing needed to make heaven is LOVE. The only thing needed to turn an evil relative is love and reason.


1. Have a Heart to Heart Talk With Them Who Once Loved You


Confront your evil relative or entangled spouse with reason. Gentle words of reason and love work wonders where violence fail. Psychologically troubled people respond better to words and things like a heart to heart talks. This is the mid giving vent to its pain at some level we do not understand and afterward, satisfaction and an inner peace are all that's left.


2. Be Prepared To Make Sacrifices


Remember that they have pain of sorts lurking within them and so seek to make sacrifices to alleviate that pain. This will draw them out even if they try to rebuff your reconcilatory attempts.


3. Listen to what they do not say


Ask them questions to know exactly where it all went wrong. Most often than not, they will not give you straight answers and so you must concentrate on their elusive resoponse to certian questions to find clues.



4. Take Advantage of Festive Periods


Festive periods such as Christmas and Easter are the best times to initiate reconciliatory moves. Knocking on the door of your enemy with a nice gift on Xmas day will most likly get you a smile and forgiveness even before you ask it.


5. Never Pay Back Evil With Evil


Paying back evil for evil is a cycle that will certainly result in a continues and very active state of enmity. You will forever be looking for what to do to harm your enemy and they will be sure to return the favor in severalfold. The question here is, when will the endless vengeance end? With the death of one or both of you most likely.


In Conclusion


Although religion may dictate your lifestyle, it's love that guarantees you peace. Interestingly, it is that same love that guarantees you heaven.

LOVE GOD and LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOURSELF, NOTHING ELSE, if you can do this as a Christain, Buddhist or a Muslim, or whatever else your religion may be, heaven and peace certainly await you!

[25] One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: “Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?”
[26] Jesus replied, “What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?” [27] The man answered, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”c [28] “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!”
