sure he preached love more. maybe the hate just when he was feeling a bit pissed? skipped breakfast or somesuch
I've been thinking...yr right jesus did not come to bring peace to the earth. He came as a wake up call to those who needed it so that we could all find peace in death (new life). So I guess alot of it comes across as hatefull to some...but he was just calling it as he saw it. Sometimes people don't like the truth.
