The Sum of the Bible Is Love

The Scriptures are about love.  They are about the love God has shown toward us, and the love He would have us show toward each other.

The apostle Paul said the sum of all his teaching was love (1 Timothy 1:5).

The apostle John said that God Himself is love (1 John 4:8, 16).

Jesus Himself said that love would be the hallmark of His disciples (John 13:35).  As you learn from the One who is love, you naturally become more loving.

If you hear someone quote from the Bible in any other spirit than love, you know that such teaching is in error and is a distortion of the Bible (2 Peter 3:14-18).

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in terms familiar to those who read the Bible.  For those unfamiliar with the Bible, look to the blog: A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.

  1. ‘The Sum of the Bible Is Love’. Exactly, because God is love, and the Bible tells us about His love for us. Being sealed with Christ’s Spirit (Eph 1:13), we have a bond too strong to break that grows stronger every day (Rom 8:37-39), videlicet by God’s help alone (Rom 5:5), which makes that love flow and grow.
