    Is Love Really the Greatest?

    Dear Spockrates, yes, I do think that loving us is the greatest thing God can do for us, and love itself is the greatest thing we can have for Him and others. And I believe that Jesus confirms that in John 13:35 - (KJV)  "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love...
