FAST FOOD (2019): Third Helping

The saving act of Jesus is an act of love of the type which He recommends in the Gospels.

Rev. John L. McKenzie

The Nonviolent Love of the Nonviolent Jesus Christ in the Gospels, is not merely the rejection and condemnation of those forms of violence—usually located in "the other"—that a person feels particularly upset over.

Christ does not just condemn illegal violence for those He has chosen;
He condemns all violence.
Christ does not exclusively condemn illegitimate violence for those He has chosen;
He condemns legitimate violence.
Christ does not simply condemn sordid violence for those He has chosen;
He condemns romantic violence.
Christ does not merely condemn personal violence for those He has chosen;
He condemns social violence.
Christ does not only condemn revolutionary violence for those He has chosen;
He condemns governmental violence.
Christ does not solely condemn external violence for those He has chosen;
He condemns internal violence.

Jesus Christ authorizes no one under any circumstances to substitute violence for love. Still less does He authorize anyone to rename violence love of the type He commands in the Gospels:

"I give you a new commandment, love one another as I have loved you."
