By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Jn 13:35
Some say that this identification is not enough. I suppose that in their book “love is NOT the greatest thing”.
Isn’t that like dumping the cross?
Doesnt that leave one wounded and bleeding, heading upcreek without a paddle?
Since “The whole of man is fearing God and doing what we are told” (Ecc. 12:13) the example that of doing God’s will that permeates the spiritual world is the Word of God becoming human so he could give his life as a ransom. One act of love by God illustrates his expectation and execution.
We who tell people to be obedient to the law or God or parents do we have a record of compliance? Isn’t there a whole lot of blasphemy, childish folly, and idolatry in our history? Isn’t there enough evidence to plug our trashy megaphones?
Nay-sayers and evildoersRomans 2:21-23
21. you, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that one shall not steal, do you steal? 22. You who say that one should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23. You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God?
