    Well said! This is why I’m studying what I am – for people to keep the Temple of God clean and healthy, and in a healthy way. Great question, Kiani!

    36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
    37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d]
    The definition of love is an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. With the resent tragedy in Japan, I’m sad of them and have prayed for them. However, I don’t there’s strong affection and personal attachment for what going on. The same is true with my neighbors. Why would Jesus say to love your neighbor as yourself if we don’t have that type of strong attachment with people we’ve never really knew or met. We love our families, friends, and coworkers because we have a different relationship with them. How are we to love someone down the street, across town, someone around the world or just an acquaintance when we don’t share that kind of affection?

    PS…is this where we going to post questions?
