Christian Diversity and Love of Enemies

Christianity has always been diverse

“Christianity has always been diverse, and has long been plagued by a tendency toward reciprocal condemnation and exclusion of others who have different opinions than our own, as we have proved time and again to be unable to apply the demand of Jesus that we love our enemies to those who are ‘enemies’ only of our idea, but not necessarily of ourselves”

The quote comes from p.xi of the forward of The Son of God: Three Views of the Identity of Jesus. A friend shared the quote on Facebook, and so I thought I would turn it into a meme.
