I think it's interesting to see how people get along here, on this forum, and any other forum.
Paul speak of Godly mysteries in the way God communicates with us through His word, and during my last several years of study, it has come to my observation, that at times it seems that God "TESTS" us in the way we communicate with each other in "WHAT WE BELIEVE as opposed to what others believe.
God seems to give us "Grayness", and some "ROPE: to hang ourselves, in the way we can translate His word to what we think is the truth, and does He see and hear us being kind and loving about what we believe a text says, especially if what a person believes is contrary to what we believe, or are we harsh and indignant, and self-centered and mean about what we believe about our faith??
1st Corinthians 13:13 says ,"But now faith, hope and LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE", so love is greater than faith, and so I take that to mean, because it fits in with Godly love throughout scripture I have studied, that if you are harsh and hateful to others about what you believe, and are unloving, even though you may be right in being knowledgeable, but not loving in how you communicate, that your communication in hatefulness is COUNTED AGAINST YOU, AND YOU HAVE NOTHING GODLY IN YOUR FAVOR because without GODLY LOVE in ALL THINGS, including communication, THERE IS NO SALVATION for the hateful and unloving who believe they are saved.
