Love Your Neighbour as Yourself

The Sermon on the Mount is "very hard teaching." In fact, it is so hard Christians have always had trouble with it. Did Jesus really have a simple universal message that everyone could follow? Yes he did. He said the most important thing to remember is to "love your neighbour as yourself". The Old Testament has this same instruction too. Everyone can understand this:

This instruction has nothing to do with creating "the most powerful military in history" and using it to enforce our leaders' will on everyone. It cannot be reconciled with murder, theft, destruction and all the other evil things that "our heroes" do every day to people who live far away and who have never done even one thing to harm us. Do not support evil.
