We are French kissing our enemies while calling them friends, and often ignoring true friends who care enough to speak the truth in love. Why do we do this? The short answer is that we very badly want to feel loved and accepted.

French Kissing Your Enemies

Wanting love and acceptance is not a problem, by itself. After all, God designed us to be loved and accepted by him. They tell our itching ears what we want to hear, so we eat up their poisonous praise, sycophantic flattery, and uncritical support of whatever selfish, sinful thing it is that we want to do. Thus they seem like friends because they support us without challenging us—which is exactly what our sinful hearts want.

Part of us wants to remain unchallenged, uncorrected, and left alone so that we can go our own way Isa. So we keep French kissing our enemies, thinking their words will bring us the love and acceptance that we crave. Their cotton candy compliments feel good for a moment, but they lack substance and power, so they satisfy the deep hunger we have for love and acceptance. Only Jesus can do that.

God tells us that life is found not in the feel-good kisses of our enemies but in the wounds of our friends. The faithful words of a friend are like wounds because the truth hurts. Though his words may be hard to hear at first, they are your only chance at getting well. For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. May the sword strike his arm and his right eye! Let his arm be wholly withered, his right eye utterly blinded! Oil and perfume make the heart glad, and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel. He who loves purity of heart, and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend. A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. One who is righteous is a guide to his neighbor, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

French Kissing Your Enemies by Doug Ponder – Christian Life

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord , the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. A Song of Ascents. Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.

Doug Ponder

Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep. A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. O Lord , how many are my foes! Many are rising against me; many are saying of my soul, there is no salvation for him in God. Selah But you, O Lord , are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

I cried aloud to the Lord , and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me. But Amasa did not observe the sword that was in Joab's hand. So Joab struck him with it in the stomach and spilled his entrails to the ground without striking a second blow, and he died. Then Joab and Abishai his brother pursued Sheba the son of Bichri.

You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.

I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name's sake, and you have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place.

He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth.

To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you. Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. The elder to the beloved Gaius, whom I love in truth. Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. Beloved, it is a faithful thing you do in all your efforts for these brothers, strangers as they are, The elder to the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all who know the truth, because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever: Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father's Son, in truth and love.

I rejoiced greatly to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as we were commanded by the Father. And now I ask you, dear lady—not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning—that we love one another. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.

Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.

For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten.

This perfume in him, and the what of his skin was like I actually think it does have a meaning, kissing my evil side seems fishy to me, it's not a meaningless dream. After I kissed him he just smiled in this creepy way and his eyes turned yellow So I woke up. Are you sure you want to delete this answer? The perfect concoction of what you seek in a real partner. Or again, you could simply be unifying with a certain part of yourself. Because in your dream you kiss an 'enemy', a dark part of yourself, it could be your mind telling you that it wishes to explore more of this part of you "that is twisted, and sick, and horrible".

As you said, he "started to seduce" you. This seduction seems to symbolize the urge that you might have to give in to that dark side, because it is alluring and interesting.

The kiss symbolizes the fact that your subconscious gave into that seduction, in real life, you will have to face the choice of wether or not you will be seduced as well. Some dreams consist of things we want but are too afraid to admit to the world. Maybe its saying you might want to be bad? Whatever it is it seems a little fishy. I think the kiss is meant to say you want a taste of being something or someone else.
