Thank you Jesuis for your comments. In light of importance of finding common ground with non-Christians in the post under discussion, I could not delve into “loving as Jesus as loved us” — a principle by which I myself live and have lived by for almost 30 years.
I have, however, penned at least one post related to adoption of love for ordering of our lives on the Medium Platform. One of those is titled, Are You a Strong Man or Woman? I believe you will enjoy your reading of it.
I agree with you that one of the problems in American society is that commercial interests think only by selling of hedonism to Americans is it possible to make good money. They are not willing to trust that basing of money making on things that are good and rooted in a love principle will generate similar success. But if gold could be so abundant during Solomon’s reign that people left silver that fell out of their pockets lying on the streets, clearly a love based economy can outperform an economy living off hedonism.
I will as soon as I can make out some time, check out your writings on the subject of loving as we have been loved by Jesus Christ.
Thank you for taking the time to pen your thoughts. I really appreciate the kind words.
