Love Starts Here

Here's another brilliantly prophetic cartoon from David Hayward of Naked Pastor. He calls out a huge problem within fundamental Christianity (and plenty of other Christians, including myself at times).

If loving our neighbors is intrinsically connected with loving ourselves, than no wonder so many of us show a low-grade disdain for others. If we cannot love ourselves, how can we expect to show any love for another. If we cannot see the image of God in ourselves, how will we ever see it in others. If we continually see ourselves as terrible, wretched sinners, of course we will focus on the sin in others before focusing on the good in others. Thank you for your challenging post today, David.
