Love Is

In light of the various outspoken 'pastors' and their church members who are belittling people who aren't church goers, burning their books, or who haven't 'arrived' at what they think their spiritual level should be. God led Apostle Paul to say this

"Love is..
patient
kind
does not envy or boast
not arrogant or rude
not insistent, irritable, or resentful
not rejoice in wrong doing
rejoices in truth
bears, believes, hopes, endures
Love never ends"

And since God IS love..God is
patient
kind
does not envy or boast
not arrogant or rude
not insistent, irritable, or resentful
not rejoice in wrong doing
rejoices in truth
bears, believes, hopes, endures
God never ends"

and since Christ indwells us we should be
patient
kind
does not envy or boast
not arrogant or rude
not insistent, irritable, or resentful
not rejoice in wrong doing
rejoices in truth
bears, believes, hopes, endures
Christ never ends"

I'm just not sure how LOVE stands on a street corner telling people of the world that God hates them when Jesus clearly died to save them before they were even born. Jesus already saved them, it's our ministry to inform them of that and ask them if they believe it.

It is not our position to force the world into behavior modification. Maybe I'm just not seeing it, but where does it say that we are to force the world to have standards if they don't even believe? We are to LOVE them to Christ. The 'world' is not under The Law of Moses, but then again..none of us are.

"It is not our position to force the world into behavior modification. " Amen! Although I would add...it isn't our position to force anyone into behavior modification...that is the job of the Holy Spirit.

Great thoughts!
