Biblical Defining

Some people believe that Jesus’ command to love your enemies is an absurd requirement because they are defining love to mean ‘believe the other to be a nice person,’ when in fact they know their enemies to be quite wicked and depraved. But biblically, love means ‘to treat the other person lawfully from the heart,’ which is to be our behavior toward all men. If this definition is made clear, the people may still think that the command is impossible, but at least they no longer should see it as absurd.
