June 1, James 2. Love your neighbor! What part of that don't you get?

James refers to social or class distinctions between the rich and poor, today we separate in so many ways. Economic, racial, sexual, political, national heritage. In the recent years we've found more and more ways to separate ourselves. We're no longer simply Americans, we're hyphenated Americans. Until those distinctions cease things will not improve. 
In the current climate of out nation, this lesson needs to be learned by so many people. We are a nation at war with each other. College students are throwing teachers off the campus, comedians make light of beheading the president, class, social, and racial distinctions and tensions have not been this high in more than 30 years and we simply fuel the fire. One of my current pet peeves is the social media explosion wanting to vilify anyone who gets caught doing wrong. Post and share this picture if you agree. They've been caught, they'll suffer the consequences, why do you want to, and why do you want me to throw stones? I remember something very basic that I was taught in kindergarten or first grade, if you haven't got something nice to say then SHUT UP!
Do me a favor, the next time you see a Christian post something stupid on social media, ask them what part of Love Your Neighbor they don't understand.
