Luke Chapter 6 Discussion Page 8

  • Kenneth on Luke 6:35 - 13 years ago
    It is a very loving verse and it teaches you to not hate your enemies, instead of doing bad to your hate ones but to do good to them.
  • Rupert Reiger on Luke 6:41 - 14 years ago
    And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

    Leads directly to The categorical imperative.
    The categorical imperative is the central philosophical concept in the moral philosophy of Immanuel Kant.

    So Luke 6:41 is identical to
    categorical imperative 2nd formulation:
    "Act in such a way that you treat humanity, whether in your own person or in the person of any other, always at the same time as an end and never merely as a means to an end"

    Which directly leads to
    categorical imperative 1st formulation:
    "Act only according to that maxim whereby you can at the same time will that it should become a universal law without contradiction."

    Interesting, how this little sentence from Luke 6:41 is directly leading and is the basis of a great philosophy, 1800 years later.

    The poor in spirit are those who are humble and depend and trust in the lord. And believe in his word. For the proud trust in themselves and the wisdom of men , because of that can not have the kingdom of God within nor are able to enter in.
