Jesus said that the rule to love your neighbour as yourself was the second greatest commandment. The command to love God most of all is the greatest commandment of all. Now in an emergency we have to think about what course of action best fulfils the law of loving the neighbour as oneself. This is more important than acting quickly. The commandment is a great help if you see a child on a road and a car about to hit her or him. The commandment even if it is good is made evil in the sense that it is given such importance!

The commandments of Jesus are about love of God coming first meaning the interior love matters more than the actions used to express that love. God looks at the heart. People only see the outward signs of love. Thus it matters far more what God thinks of us than people. Thus hypothetically it is best to say a prayer with a little love in the heart for God than to save the world with less love.

The fact that Jesus commanded that we be sure that God alone means anything to us and that people only have indirect value in relation to him urges us that even in an emergency we must stop and think not about doing the most good we can but about the purity of our motives and their ability to slot right into these commands. The commandments and the way they are exalted above all other considerations tells us what fanatical poison they are. People are only instruments to be used in pursuit of obedience to these commandments.

While you pause to make sure you are spiritually right before you save the drowning child, the child will draw his last breath.


You have five senses. You love what they tell you is there not what is there. To prove the point, say you were unknowingly strapped up to a machine that tricked the sense data going to your brain into thinking you met a woman you fell deeply in love with. This woman does not exist. So you do not love your neighbour, this lady, as yourself but you love your sense data as yourself. The reason is that you do not really believe in your neighbour’s existence but in the sensations you have of your neighbour. You live as if you believe in your neighbour because you have to take these sensations into account. Your senses are part of what you are so you love yourself by loving the information they give you. To really love your neighbour as yourself means you must hate yourself. It requires you to be disgusted by your love for your perceptions not people. It is meant to break you down when you see you can’t do it and to hate yourself for not being able.

We need love. To say we need love is to say we suffer if we don't get it. So love is always an act of compassion. We are all damaged and we all have our vulnerabilities. Nobody needs a counsellor because they fell off a bicycle and broke a leg and spent weeks in the house after. People only need help for what PEOPLE did to them. If you loved the sinner and hated the sin as religion requires, you would not need such help. Why? Because then you would see only the person when you see the sinner and not see the sinner. So it follows that nearly all the compassion we get isn't justified. It isn't justified for we failed to love and are bearing the consequences. The damage done to us by the past is our own fault. Religion then is the mortal enemy of true compassion. Belief in God is a shrine of evil.


If you can help a bad person or a good person and you are to love your neighbour as yourself then who do you help? I’d say it is more loving to help the bad person for badness produces unhappiness and insecurity in the person practicing it. The bad person needs to be shown good more than the good person. The bad person needs to see God in your actions and be thereby inspired to change and turn to holiness. The good person will understand if he is really good. So love your neighbour as yourself was made up by evil people to exploit the gullible so that they would reap the benefit. You need to do good to attract the bad person to good so that it becomes more real and maybe more attractive to them. If they forget what good is like they will remain bad so they need to see it a lot. If the wicked will burn in Hell forever it is vital that they be helped and the virtuous ignored so that they might be saved from the jaws of Satan.

Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan says that instead of helping the people you consider most worthy you must not even think about that at all. This opposes the commonsense observation that you should try to expend your energy on those who will do the most good. To hold that you should sacrifice yourself for the undeserving is really to say that you should love your neighbour more than yourself. Love your neighbour as yourself meant that if you were a homosexual or a heretic or an adulterer in those days it was your duty to love your neighbour as yourself by consenting and approving of them stoning you to death and allowing them to do it.


Jesus married love of neighbour to forgiving them and he said there is no mercy from God for the one who does not pardon.  This is moral blackmail.  Forgiveness cannot be influenced or compelled.  It just happens.  The love Jesus advocated is poisonous and cynical.


Could you imagine a less sick doctrine than one that urges you to love your neighbour and then makes it impossible for you? Jesus advocated love and then took steps to make sure hatred would reign instead.

Twisted doctrines like the ones he gave make you unavoidably feel persecuted when criticised or when people know of your failures to love your neighbour. They cause vengeful instincts. They lead to apologies that are not meant but which are just done to hide your real feelings and attitudes. They lead to the belief that you either use or you be used.
