an antithesis love of enemies. can happen. do it. don't hate, don't discriminate. love from God.
an anitithesis adultery + lust. don't adulterize. lust is good in marriage, with love. (i know i hate this as much as you do). reward from god, uhhh.. a great marriage?
an antithesis divorce. bad, bad, make the marriage work. ;)
difference/comparision between Beatitudes and the Ten Commandments the ten commandments focus on what is the good (what is God's will) and the Beatitudes focus on our natural desire to attain true happiness
