In just 20 words Jesus effaced the Ten Commandments…or, in view of how these commandments are actually lived out, the Ten Suggestions.

Many are willing and even eager to die for their country, but a country is not the truth. Where is the man who knows the truth and is willing to die for it?
Fear and love are mutually exclusive. Where one is, the other is not.
“There is no fear in love. Perfect love drives out fear.”
Some things can’t be mixed.
Wait, that’s not quite true; you can mix them. But the results are disastrous.
