Jesus is Love... God is Love... Love your enemies... it's quoted all the time, I find that it's rarely thought much about.
It is often quoted as some kind of amazing moral principle to "love your enemies", but what does it mean?
I'm not sure, but if the character of the New Testament is supposed to believed, He deals with His enemies by torturing them forever in hellfire. If this is love, it's a funny kind of love.
So, I'd argue that either
- Jesus does not practice what He preaches; or
- He is practicing what He preaches, but "loving your enemies" includes torturing your enemies for eternity.
I deal with this argument in my new post: Response to: Jesus is Love...
