hi all,

The Bible itself states that God is love in 1 John!
this has Wonderful implications!

NASB (probably 2020 ver.)
7 Beloved, let’s love one another; for love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 By this the love of God was revealed in us, that God has sent His only Son into the world so that we may live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the ]propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God remains in us, and His love is perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we remain in Him and He in us, because He has given to us of His Spirit. 14 We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

thanks for reading,

Let's remember that God's love is not a fluffy love, but a practical real love.

God's love is seen practically in his giving of laws, enabling a God hating man to worship God.
It is seen today through Jesus, but again as Jesus said in John 3:18 those who do not believe, do not love God are condemned.
 
Hey All,
But I like the fluffy love.

God is agape; the greatest form of love.
Agape is translated as "charity" in 1 Corinthians 13.
Charity is giving when you don't have to.

If we agape, we fulfill the Law.

So go agape someone today.

Keep walking everybody.
May God bless,
Taz

Agape love is not soft and fluffy.
It is a lovely that gives generously, but a love that also speaks the truth.
It does not tell a he'll bound sinner that ' all is well ', rather it will point out that the consequences of rejecting Jesus, regardless of whether the sinner believes in God, results in an eternal separation I hell.

Hey All,
Amen Who Me.
Did I offend you?
That was not my intention.
May I ask, where did I say agape means "all is well" to the unsaved person?
I do not know how you got that from what I wrote.

Grace is agape.
God is not obligated to love us as sinners.
But He does.
God saves us through His agape.
I know you would agree with this Who Me.
As believers, what will non-believers know us by?

John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Keep walking everybody.
May God bless,
Taz

Hey All,
Actually, I made a mistake.
God is obligated to love the sinner.
But He is not obligated to allow him/ger to have eternal life.
Sorry about the mistake.

Keep walking everybody.
May God bless,
Taz
