512-523 – Dallas Willard.  How do we love our enemies? To love someone is to be set to do what is good for them, and to stop punishing them.  We seek to restrain evil, for the harm it does to the person themselves and to others, and sometimes that restraint requires lethal force (e.g., law enforcement).

528-539 – Dallas Willard.  How do you fire someone in Christian love?  Two big principles:  You never love just the one person, you love everyone involved in the situation, and you never cut people off – you're in it with them, still seeking what is best for them (this requires that they are interested in being with you). 

There is deep confusion between love and sentimentalism – love is an act of the will, sentimentalism is your feelings.  Love has nothing to do with sentimentalism.

• TMZ (5/17/2011) Arnold's Love Child -- Spitting Image.  Arnold fired Patty Baena, she didn't retire, and the 13½-year-old son looks just like his father, and both Patty and Maria were pregnant at the same time – the boys were born just days apart.

TMZ has obtained lots of information -- as well as photos -- of the boy Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered out of wedlock -- and he looks shockingly like Arnold himself.

The mother -- Mildred Patricia Baena (she goes by Patty) -- was a housekeeper/assistant for the family for more than 20 years. Her jobs included cleaning, laundry, cooking and other chores.

Sources tell TMZ -- in the late '90s Patty began to "pursue Arnold."  She told friends they would have unprotected sex during the day at the house.  Patty never slept overnight at the house and no one ever caught them in the act.

We're told when she became pregnant, she didn't tell Arnold he was the father. Arnold didn't learn he was the daddy until the boy was a toddler.

Patty -- who made $1,200 a week -- was treated well by Arnold once he found out. Sources say Arnold was always "generous."

Patty -- who has recently retired -- now lives in a 4 bedroom house with a pool, several hours outside of L.A. with the boy and her 3 other kids.

We are not revealing the identity of the boy, however his features are eerily like Arnold's.  We have various pictures of him at various ages (he's now in his early teens) and each picture shows striking similarities, especially the mouth and teeth.

• TMZ (5/18/2011) Arnold's Love Child -- Nicest Kid You'll Ever Meet.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the birth certificate of the boy Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered ... and he's not listed as the father on the birth certificate.  As TMZ reported, Mildred "Patty" Baena -- who worked as a housekeeper/assistant for Arnold and Maria -- is the mother.  She listed her then-husband, Rogelio Baena as the dad.

Baena used a different last name on the birth certificate -- Pena.

The boy was born on October 2, 1997, which now makes him 13. He was born at Saint Joseph's Hospital in Burbank, CA.

• TMZ (5/18/2011) Arnold's Baby Mom & Maria -- Preggo at Same Time.

// Maria Shriver and Mildred Patricia Baena were both pregnant with Arnold's children ... AT THE SAME TIME.  And get this ... the two kids were born less than a WEEK APART  -- Maria's son Christopher was born on September 27, 1997 ... and Mildred's love child was born on October 2, 1997.  The two boys are now 13 years old.
