“Christianity is about a loving relationship with the Lord and about loving one another. Christ did not teach his disciples to love themselves, but rather assumed that they already did when he said: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself” (Luke 10:27). Just as we naturally care for ourselves and want what is good for ourselves, we are to care for others and want what is good for them.”  Martin and Deidre Bobgan, “…Men Shall Be Lovers of Their Own Selves…”, Web Archive from Newsletter (http://www.psychoheresy-aware.org/selflove32.html)
