Thoughts on Politics
If people can be moved to deny the God-ascribed dignity and worth of fellow humans on account of politics, money, race or religion, there is no line over which they cannot be coerced to cross. If however people can love regardless of these, there are no heights which cannot be achieved.
From Matthew 5: 43-48
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
