Bible Versus to Ponder
Remind them to be submissive to rulers and
authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for
every good work, to speak evil of no one, to
avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show
perfect courtesy toward all people. For we
ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led
astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures,
passing our days in malice and envy, hated by
others and hating one another. But when the
goodness and loving kindness of God our
Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of
works done by us in righteousness, but according
to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration
and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

No conditions were set by Jesus, when the commandment was given to love your neighbor. Love. Period. Regardless of any adjective or descriptor, classification or
