LOL Grace you can just delete part of my post instead of reposting all of it. At this rate...it could take a while.<quoted text>
Hi, Sorry, I ran out of room on the other post. Whenever i first became a Christain, I had a problem with this verse also. How was I suppose to love a stranger the same way that I loved my sister, spouse, parents and children?? I love all of them but not in the same way. I finally learned that the word "LOVE" in our English language is not expressed as well as the Greeks use this word.I will run out of room before I can explain so I will post on another page..
I know that I asked a lot of questions but they were questions that I asked myself.
Yes...I do agree that we often confuse love and what that means. However...that makes no difference as to what we think it means...what did Jesus mean when he said to "love".
Obviously that gets interpreted differently also or people are just confused as to what he meant. You and I both know that there are those out there that say they are "loving their neighbor" by beating them over the head with their Bible.
