LIFE & TEACHINGS OF JESUS

The Brotherhood of Man

Since God is our Father, it follows that we are all brothers and sisters in his spiritual family. The truth is the reality of our spiritual relationship with one another.

We are taught to love one another, but love of a fellow human being cannot be achieved by a mere act of the will alone. We must come to know a person, especially their sentiments and motivations, before we can really learn to love them. We are spiritually alike because of the indwelling spirit of God, but we are all different with regard to our philosophical interpretations and the way we think about our individual spiritual experiences. Jesus taught that we could have spiritual unity without philosophical uniformity. Jesus went about doing good, and he was genuinely interested in others. The highest interpretation of the Golden Rule is to treat others according to our best and highest ideals of how we believe God would treat them in like circumstances. God is living love.
