“If God is for us, who can be against us?”

“If God is for us, who can be against us?”, I hear this line quoted a lot also misquoted a lot and usually as a battle cry and I think completely missing the point of it.  I admit it when I was younger and much less spiritual I felt the same way about it I think a lot of people do.  That if God is on our side, and I’m not saying a specific God though this is from the bible, then none of the people who are against us have a chance.  Luckily I got past that stage in my life and that way of thinking.  I know think the whole point of the quote is that nobody is against us.  If God is in fact for us I would tend to think that we are for God as well or rather we have him/her/it in our hearts.  If that is the case then I think we would tend to realize that all things are God as well as all people.  If I truly have God in my heart I have no enemies but brothers and sisters, disagreements yes misunderstandings, you bet but these people are not my enemies but a reflection of God.  Plus I really don’t think God is against anyone, I believe and prefect divine love and enough to go around.  I don’t think God hates anyone if he/she/it did what kind of God would that be?

 

What do you think? Am I completely of my rocker on this one?
