Terrifying Love

love-your-enemies

“But I say to you, love your enemies.” (Matthew 5:44)

Christianity promotes love that goes beyond the law and beyond the status quo. This love is the heart of God’s Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is not other-worldly, it is in us and among us, even while business as usual proceeds.

Love worthy of the name Christian is all-inclusive and unconditional. God’s indiscriminate benevolence and unconditional mercy hold reality together. Who are we to separate what God has joined together?

  1. So much said in a few words. We make life so complicated by not following the simple premise that God is Love and we are to pass on the simplicity of His Love.
