"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.


L
ove all your fellow men, even your enemies. This is the most basic thing. Always love not only those who love us, but also those that hate us. Let us forgive them and love them all even if they have done us the greatest evil; then we are truly children of God. Then our own sins are also forgiven... Always preach love. This is the most basic law of God: love and love alone.
