If you do not know what O'Sensei was getting at, then how do you know what he doesn't mean?

.To put the Christian context of love, and saying that is what O'Sensei meant by love is bassackwards. He didn't mean it like since logically he wasn't a Christian. Basically,
You don't have to be religious to understand that loving your neighbor as thy self is a means to peace.


Go ahead, tread on me.
