Now one of the scribes had come up and heard their debate. Noticing how well Jesus had answered them, he asked Him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?”

 

Jesus replied, “This is the most important: ‘Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord, and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”

 

Bible, Mark 12: 28 - 33

 

 

Political Gods

 

 

The liberals call the conservatives hypocrites

For being being anti-abortion

But refusing to take in immigrants

The conservatives call the liberals heretics

For being pro-choice and

Increasing government spending

 

And the liberals think that conservatives

Are Satan as they hold onto their guns

And ignore the climate change

Happening on Earth

And the conservatives think the

Liberals are the devil

For redefining the idea of marriage

And for ignoring their

Belief and values

 

And as the fire gets bigger

The Politicians douse it with oil

They build walls to divide them further

Throw in words to convince us

We are different

But the truth is

In the middle of all this fighting

We’ve thrown our Bibles aside

Lost the focus of the mission of religion

The wish to build communities

And unite

In spite of all our differences

The problems won’t be solved

With more violence

The problems can only be resolved

If we refocus on what was

His two most important

Commandments
