Love is More like a Boxer than a Cherub

Jesus’s statements in our gospel text might make the top five of the most important things he said in his ministry. Here, and in a few other places, Jesus identifies God’s two highest priorities for humanity: to love Him and to love each other.  And although these are VERY important words, they are some of the least understood of all his teachings and most often distorted.  Jesus’s teaching is NOT some sentimental thing: it is a philosophical and theological bombshell, a perspective on all of God’s truth and even a statement about the nature of God Himself.
