ABOUT THE VIDEO
_
In this video, I talk about Jesus, the Bible (The Gospels in the New Testament), The Book of Matthew, The Golden Rule, reciprocity, heaven, hell, relationships, love, and hypocrisy.

In The Book of Matthew, Jesus said, “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets,” and this phrase is commonly known as The Golden Rule, and it’s probably one you heard in school as a kid: treat others the way you wanna be treated. And if this rule is understood in all its depth, I think you’ll find that it’s legitimately life-changing.

See, at the heart of The Golden Rule is the principle of equality. Whatever rule you think other people should live by, you should live by that rule too. And whatever rules you currently live by, you should allow others to live by those rules too. And why is equality important? When there’s equality, relationships are based on fair trade, and when relationships are based on fair trade, all parties mutually thrive. And tell me, isn’t that a good definition of heaven? The place where all things mutually thrive? So The Golden Rule can be thought of as the road to heaven—which is the best of all possible realities, the reality where everything thrives.

But clearly, we don’t live in the best of all possible realities. So we must constantly be breaking The Golden Rule, but why? Why don’t we naturally treat others they way we want to be treated? What prevents us from living out this rule? Well, we break The Golden Rule when we stop treating each other as equals, and we stop treating each other as equals when we make unfair trades. And what’s an unfair trade? “Thriving” at the expense of someone else, or allowing someone else to thrive at your expense. And what causes us to allow these unfair trades? Hypocrisy.

And so, how do we overcome hypocrisy? By believing that, in a healthy relationship, what we want is just as important as what the other person wants. And when there’s no hypocrisy, there’s fair trade, and when there’s fair trade, there’s equality, and when there’s equality, The Golden Rule is satisfied, and when The Golden Rule is satisfied, we move closer to heaven—the place where everyone thrives.
