What is an “ideological interpretation” of the Gospel? If I notice Jesus said to repent, is that an ideological distortion of ‘love, love, love’?

” “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”

Perhaps interpreting Jesus' call to love as a call to turn in your guns.

Perhaps interpreting the early Christians sharing as wealth (Acts 4) as a Biblical mandate for socialism and redistribution of wealth at the barrel of a gun.

That's what I would say.
