THEopposite of love is hate. Within the line of
hatred we find rejection, selfishness and even individualism. With these
concepts clear, we are able to understand genocides, homicides and any other
act of violence. What leads a brother to murder his own brother? What is it
that allows the one who swore to defend your freedom and give you security to
draw the regulation pistol from him and assassinate you because you are in the
middle of a social protest against corruption? And the two determining factors
go through the lack of love for God and the lack of love for neighbour. But,
believing in God is not a guarantee of not resorting to violence, let's look at
the cases of Cain and Abel, Moses also authorized barbaric acts against the
conquered peoples, finally, we cannot ignore the act of prevarication by David
by sending Uriah to be assassinated because he had made his wife pregnant. As
we see, it is necessary not only the combination of love of God and love of neighbour,
but a love that goes beyond and is completely integral is necessary.
"Then the scribe said to him: Well,
Master, you have truly said that one is God, and there is no other besides
Mark 12. 32
So the positions are quite clear:
1- Love God and recognize that only he is.
2- Love your neighbour as yourself.
3- Be whole to reach the stature of Christ.
"And loving him with all your heart, with
all your understanding, with all your soul, and with all your strength, and
loving your neighbour as yourself, is more than all burnt offerings and
Mark 12. 33
Honestly, trying to accomplish these three at
the same time is not as straightforward as said. Our lacks and needs only God
can supply through his Spirit. So, if we allow the Holy Spirit of God to guide
us, we will be able to show by our example that Jesus Christ really lives in
each of us. On the other hand, by letting the Light of Christ reach other
people, we will see how more and more the whole world is illuminated with the
radiance of God, something that is needed in these times and with great
God bless you.
A LOVE BEYOND...
