Is there love without love for God?
« on: Wed Mar 04, 2020 - 14:26:15 »
To Love, we must love God.                                                                                                                              God is the Spirit of love. Therefore, to love others, we must first accept God’s spirit; and to accept his spirit, we must love Him.  Love has no place for hate, because pure love hates no one. We can, therefore, never love God, if we hate even one person.  To love God, is to express the love, Jesus expressed for us on the cross.  Our love, therefore, must be pure, unconditional, total, selfless and sacrificial. Furthermore, we should avoid sin, out of pure love for God and our fellow human beings, and not out of fear of punishment.

So then the poor women in the jungles of the Amazon who has never even heard of God cannot possibly love her child because she does not and cannot love the God she has never heard of.  That can't be true.

Every living thing is capable of love.

“If He should determine to do so,
            If He should gather to Himself His spirit and His breath,
      All flesh would perish together,
            And man would return to dust.
  -Job 34:14,15

1John 4:19
