What exactly is the idea behind "love your enemy as yourself"? Bob shows us it's more complicated than you might think: It might be that you're supposed to love your enemy because you're hoping God will be the one to dole out punishment to the wicked (far more severely than you could). Or maybe loving your enemy will, as Bob says, "make your enemy feel like a jerk," thereby psychologically heaping fiery coals on his head.
Also, is it really St. Peter's job to decide who does and does not get into Heaven? And what's the deal with Revelation: isn't the Roman Empire supposed to rise again? We'll get to the bottom of it all with The Human Bible.
