Conditional love and unconditional love do not reconcile in language. “Unconditional” is the opposite of “conditional” as “sweet” is to “bitter”.
When Jesus preached “Love your neighbour as yourself”, was he preaching sweet, unconditional love or bitter, conditional love?
Christmas approaches. In the vain of the three wise men, in order to earn riches (gold) in heaven, does one practise unconditional love like sweet frankincense or conditional love like bitter myrrh?
It is a binary choice because “unconditional” and “conditional” are mutually exclusive. Which is the “love” in “Love your neighbour as yourself”? Unconditional love or conditional love?
