What is so confusing to people about loving their neibor as you would have them love you, or loving your enemy, or loving God with with your whole heart body and soul? These are the principle core beliefs and actions that Jesus taught. Love for one another is all he cared about. Modern Christianity has confused the central point of Jesus' teachings with politics, business social matters that only distract us. Ask people how they would apply Christianity in their lives.
