What’s in it for me? (adaptation of the gospel of Jesus Christ)
Which one makes more sense ?
(1) God commands his children to obey him or they will be punished.
(2) God teaches his children with loving kindness how to maximize their own peace and joy.
Matthew 7 King James Version (KJV)
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Righteousness is simply What-so-ever maximizes peace and joy.
I give you this new commandment:
Love one another with as much empathy as possible.
It is better than the other commandments to [love one another] because it detects subtle nuances of harmful callousness that would otherwise go unnoticed.
This commandment (like the greatest commandments) overrules anything (including other commandments) that conflicts with it to the slightest degree.
This purpose of this blog is to unite humanity in righteousness to establish Heaven on Earth.
