This is a very fine example of God's continuing instructions to us over the ages, and a very nice 'follow up' to the Ten Commandments. Whilst God directly revealed the ten Commandments to Moses, He uses his messengers to reveal further instructions, in this case Jesus. All religions would believe in this commandment. Whilst religions could dispute when and how such instructions come about today, one thing we should all remember- God may or may not use messengers today, but He can and does guide/talk to us all as individuals in our current lives
some of us are a lot like cement:- all mixed up and permanently set

Why is Allah so often called The Most Compassionate, Most Merciful? Because He knows that we sin very easily. It is not easy to love each and everyone of us, even though this is the basic teachings of all religions.

He is also AtTawab - The Accepter of Repentance. He said in Hadis Qudsi, If my servant take a step towards me, I will run to him.

Alhamdulillah - Praise be to Allah.

Ilahi Anta Maksudi, Wa Redhaka Mathlubi - Oh Allah, You are my destination, Your Pleasure is my Intention.

Hi believer,

no doubt that God's love and Mercy never ceases, and the message He gave to mankind always have that component in it.

Your quote certainly refelects that thought, however what puzzles me is this quote in Matthew 10:

34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’[e]

Hasan

39:64 Proclaim: Is it some one other than God that you order me to worship, O you ignorant ones?"

honeto-  It is not what Jesus wanted , He was telling us what was in store.  Jesus was right, look at the hatred aimed at Christians.
 
monasjazz - Yes, we are to love the sinner, but that does not mean that we love the sin or that the sin does not go unpunished.

well, I think it is a good idea to love all human ( the children of Adam, becuase they all seems look like as your brotherhood as human being  ) eventhough they are a sinner .. but could you to exposing your reasoning for this case ?
