I am puzzled. The key to Matt 5:48 lies in ersus 43 ff, which starts a new paragraph. The context is about loving your neighbor, blessing your enemies, and praying for them. Be ye THEREFORE perfect, or in other words, cultivate compassion, agape, loving kindness, and charity and you will be like your Father. Why don't commentators talk about the context, connecting with Mormon's and Paul's advice about charity, agape?
This was AMAZING to learn this morning. Thanks!
