Amo ergo sum...I love, therefore I am. End of story.

"If you do not love, you have nothing...you are nothing" Excerpts from 1Corinthians13: 1-13. How can anyone just read that scripture without seeing that Love is the whole point of the entire Bible, every chapter and verse? But only through Spirit and Grace. Grace has its own algorithms for the physics of the heart, wholly from heaven and not of earth.

Love is not directly of the heart but of the Eternal.

Yeah... Probably not the whole Bible...

God commanding the Israelites to commit genocide probably wasn't about love...

I expected someone to bring up that point. This is just the way I look at the Bible: it is a challenging "I" chart, having the eyes to see. The Israelites were supposed to object, plea to God to stay his hand. There are 47 times that God relented at the pleas of his Chosen People in the Old Testament. This section is about violating the principles and purpose of Love, not accepting this attack on Canaan. The Word is filled with these tests on the true nature of love. We are not to blindly accept them but rather question and object.

We are never anything but fools: when of God, to the world and when of the world, to God. Can I hear an ole?

I like this line of thought...

Once again, appreciation...

Really emphasizes God's respect for free will and the importance of understanding the commandments vs blind obedience..
