Christ said, "love your neighbor as YOURSELF." Christ tells us to have self respect kind of love for our well being- loving yourself IS NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH BEING PRIDEFUL OR SELFISH. (which in its Greek root origin, NEIGHBOR means: your OPPOSITE)
I am a lover and a made fighter; but I ONLY fight with the weapon of love for it is the greatest tool humanity holds. As Martin Luther King states, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that!"
