Mclemore in his book Toxic Relationships and How to Change Them notes: “

As Christians, we have a duty to care, sincerely and deeply, about the wellbeing of others. This is the core of the love that we are to have for all persons. It is also the foundation for the fellowship we can enjoy with other persons in the faith. It is our holy duty to preserve the dignity of all human beings, whether saint or sinner, criminal or humanitarian, rich or poor, culturally and ethnically like us or not. All of this is relatively easy to state, and agree with, in the abstract. It is harder actually to do. Think of the people you most detest. You are to respect them. Think of the qualities in others that most upset you. You are nevertheless to be kind to those who have these characteristics. Think of the cultures or subcultures, if any, that make you uncomfortable and the ethnic or political groups, if any, that you find most alien. You are to embrace the people from all of these. Think also of the personalities you find obnoxious. And so on” (9).
