Article: "Love our Enemies? Surprising? Impossible! Just What Did Jesus Really Mean?"


“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you" (Matthew 5:43-4)

“Love our enemy?
Sometimes we can’t even stand a family member, neighbor, fellow parishioner or coworker who can be so … so … Well, you know how certain people can be.”

This article stresses the meaning of these words of Jesus, and what it does to us if we do it.
