Sermon on the mount

Postby TheRationalizer » Tue Dec 14, 2010 4:45 pm

I read the point about the sermon on the mount. I'd never actually read the sermon before, but here are a couple of observations about the evaluation...

Bible > 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication

You > If you're miserable and want out - go sleep with someone else and NOW you can get a divorce

My understanding of this verse just from reading it for the first time is not that you can divorce someone if you want to commit an act of fornication with someone else, but rather than you can divorce someone if they have fornicated with someone else.

Bible > 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies

You > Implicitly, the moment I love somebody, they cease being an enemy to me.

I don't think that is correct. When you love someone you are no longer their enemy, but they still might hate your guts and still be your enemy.

So you can love your enemy.
