On Loving One's Enemies

[W]e know it is possible to love our enemies. Otherwise why would Christ in the Sermon on the Mount ask that we so love? . . . Are we to make Christ a liar? If we do not think it possible to love our enemies, then we should plainly say Jesus is not the Messiah.
 (Quote from Stanley Hauerwas)

Karoly Ferenczy, Sermon on the Mountain (1896)
