Loving your neighbor, and thus fulfilling the Great Commandment, requires the proper diagnosis. If your neighbor is hungry, give him food (James 2:15-16). If he is idle, admonish him (1 Thessalonians 5:14). If he is fainthearted, encourage him (5:14). If he is weak, help him (5:14). If he is doing good, commend him (2 Corinthians 12:11).
I rehearse these basics as a preface to discussing a four-minute viral video sent to me, which at first blush seems like love, until you question the diagnosis.
