Love thine enemies:
Luke 6:27 But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Luk 6:35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Mat 5:43-44 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them
that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Rom 12:20-21 Therefore if
thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt
heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
But slay them if they don't permit God or Jesus to rule over them:
Luke 19:27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
And also to make footstools of them:
Matthew 22:44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right
hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
Mark 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, the LORD said to my LORD, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
Hebrews 10:13 From
henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy
foes [enemies] thy footstool.
And don't forget that it was our enemies who sowed the tares amongst us:
Matthew 13:25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Matthew 13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather
And don't make them a friend, or YOU will become an enemy--OF GOD:
James 4:4 Ye adulterers and
adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever
therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
And don't forget that we were given power over them:
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any
means hurt you.
And don't consider a fallen brethren Israelite to be one:
2 Thessolinians 3:14-15 And if any
man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that
he may be ashamed. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
Be sure we are saved from them, and that they remember God's everlasting covenant with
Luke 1:71-72 That we should
be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to
remember his holy covenant;
Don't forget we have the power to blind them:
Acts 13:10 And said, O full

Phi 3:18-19 (For many walk,
