Which neighbor should I love?


I just love Hipster Jesus. By the waythis is not an actual picture of the Christ.  Come to think of it I’ve never seen an original picture of the Messiah.

But you get the idea. When Jesus Christ told us to love our neighbor, to whom was He excluding? Liberals, LGBT, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, conservatives, politicians, or even Muslims?

The Lord actually said to love your enemies as well. How can you love a God you can’t see and hate a neighbor you can see?

Not that an actual relationship with God is a religion but James, the half-brother of Jesus, said in his own book that true religion is to take care of widows and orphans.

I believe the words “true religion” are used metaphorically. But the idea is to look after those that are less fortunate, those that can’t fend for themselves, aka the “underdogs”.
