Following Christ Means Compassion
Culture and ideology are powerful forces. Humans tend to harmonize their reading of scripture and their understanding of religion with their culture and religion, even if that means severe intellectual contortion.
The only way to follow Christ’s call to love is to base all of our actions on compassion with those who will be affected by the things we do and believe. In the face of the other we will recognize Christ. Jesus calls us to love our neighbours as ourself. He goes even so far as to command us to love our enemies.
