It has been evident that God set strange and peculiar standards of love. Calamity, trouble, deprivation and self-denial were elements of love. People opted to adopt rituals of the religions rather than going through self-discipline and purgation. The Standards of Love set by God were so high that people did not feel encouraged to go for it. God’s love has never gained popularity among religious people.
One who loves God will definitely – by nature of love – involuntarily love humanity. If you have no respect for humanity, it simply means you have no respect for God.
