love

Mathew 22:37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the other commandments and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
Galatians 5:22 But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives, he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Here there is no conflict with the law.

1 Corinthians 13:3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would be of no value whatsoever. 4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. 6 It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

1 Thessalonians 3:12 And may the Lord make your love grow and overflow to each other and to everyone else, just as our love overflows toward you. 13 As a result, Christ will make your hearts strong, blameless, and holy when you stand before God our Father on that day when our Lord Jesus comes with all those who belong to him.

1 John 3:14 If we love our Christian brothers and sisters, it proves that we have passed from death to eternal life. But a person who has no love is still dead. 15 Anyone who hates another Christian is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them. 16 We know what real love is because Christ gave up his life for us. And so we also ought to give up our lives for our Christian brothers and sisters. 17 But if anyone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need and refuses to help-how can God’s love be in that person? 18 Dear children, let us stop just saying we love each other; let us really show it by our actions. 19 It is by our actions that we know we are living in the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before the Lord, 20 even if our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

Hate

If you have respect, trust, and joy; from one person… then you have love for that person.

Some people respect an image that a player puts out. Some girls respect the image of the quarterback’s prestigee.

Here we go. An example of religious intolerance.

This whole “love” thing is based on the premise that as long as everyone is better than they’ve ever been, then everything will be fine. It’s outdated and it isn’t compatible with real-world situations. I can’t stand shit like this.

See what happens when you rely on some written text to tell you what is proven in reality.

Try and explain Love without any bible quotes, can you?

Religious intolerance of hate,… hmmm.

I try to expand on religion with moderen thinking. Just as long as I don’t subtract from the words of God. Or phrophets inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Do you think the words in the bible are perfect and completely inspired by God?

Do you think God intended for us to have a bible?

I ask because you seem to be missing the main aspect and personality of Love as I know it.

loving someone you hate for me is one of the greatest challenge in life…
it is one of a so called perfect love…
as what jesus had said, “love your enemies…”
and as what jesus had done, he offered His life for us, in his time, to those people who persecuted Him…
that’s what a perfect love be measured about…

Well said.
=D>

don’t hate your enemies, hate their actions. Thus creating a seperation of hate for this person and their actions.

Love builds understanding. Understand your enemies, and be better off dealing with them.

I’m gonna try to stick to the topic (if there is one), but I have a lot on my mind. I have recently (as in the last couple of weeks) rejected my christianity. And I’m listening to my wife as she tries to grapple with it, and she’s asking where do I get my morals from if not from the bible. And I realize something: holy crap, I thought that way to! I was for sure that Christians had cornered the market on morals and love, and everyone else was just guessing. Wow…I hope…as a christian…you will think of that. I mean, you’re not convincing someone like me I made a fatal mistake. I have found that many christians and christianity can be as cold as many “atheists” and “atheism”. Anyway, don’t know where that takes this, but it just seems like you threw a lot of “stuff” out there, and left we wondering why.

As I understand it, the love principle is supportable by the fact that we naturally love ourselves and that others are the same rational nature as ourselves, so that they deserve the same treatment to which we feel oursleves entitled.

and that’s where christianity would part ways, and there can seemingly be no dialogue from the manner in which this was begun. We don’t all believe that love starts with a god. But if u and I say it starts with us, they say no…and so the loops goes on.

Anyway

manymarius,

Christianity is baced on the principle that Christ was God. All the old testiment phrophicies are dirrected to this.

The Holy Spirit (Christs biggest chenge to religion) heals the soul, while the bible allows us to meditate on what we need to chenge mentally, as physical memories and learned instincts.

This is why I believe.

God (Holy Spirit) and Human IncarnationSTATEMENT: - MATHEW 10: 40

Lord Jesus was the human incarnation of the Holy Spirit. The human body of Holy Jesus is like the metallic wire, which was all over, pervaded by the Holy Spirit. Veda says ‘Antarbahischa’ which means that the Holy Spirit pervades all over the body of Human Incarnation. Wherever you touch the wire the electric shock is given. Similarly the entire human body of Holy Jesus is holy. The holiness is the nature of Holy Spirit just like the shock is the property of electricity.

As the electricity cannot be separated from the wire, the Holy Spirit cannot be separated from the Holy Jesus. So here the Holy Spirit is the Holy Jesus. Holy Jesus refers this Holy Spirit as His Father. He tells that He was sent by His father as a messenger. Though He and His father are one and the same, He speaks like this for which there is a practical reason i.e., every human being repels with another human being. A man cannot accept another man as God due to Jealousy and Egoism. Bhagavatgita says, “A man will insult Me when I come here in human form (Avajananti mam….)”. For this purpose Holy Jesus wants Himself to be called only as the messenger of the Holy Spirit by the disciples whenever He is introduced to the public. If He tells the truth the egoistic public will not hear even what He preaches and will reject Him. Therefore He is telling His disciples to introduce Him as a messenger only. Ofcourse, the disciples are really the messengers of Holy Jesus.

Holy Spirit has taken over the human body of Holy Jesus and pervaded all over the body to preach the divine knowledge to this world. The same Holy Spirit is sending the disciples for the propagation of the Divine knowledge. Both the body of Holy Jesus and the disciples are instruments of the Holy Spirit chosen for different purposes. The Holy Spirit is preaching through the body of Holy Jesus and is propagating the divine knowledge through disciples. Therefore if you respect the disciple you are respecting the Holy Spirit indirectly. Though both the instruments exist like this, the Holy Spirit is present in Jesus and is not present in the disciples.

Due to this difference the disciple is an indirect instrument and the direct instrument is Holy Jesus. The disciple propagates the divine knowledge after hearing from the Holy Jesus. Therefore when such disciple is respected, Holy Jesus is respected first and then the Holy Spirit. But among the disciples there may be some person who cannot repeat what Holy Jesus exactly preached. In such a case the Holy Spirit will take over the body of that disciple and preaches (Mathew 10: 20). Such a disciple differs from Holy Jesus because the Holy Spirit resides in that disciple for some time only where as the Holy Spirit resides in Jesus all the time.

Holy Jesus is telling that He is the messenger of the Holy Spirit and He is also telling that the disciple is His messenger. He is giving the same status to Himself and the disciple by telling like this. The reason is that some disciple may become jealous in future if He says that He Himself is the Holy Spirit where as the disciple is His messenger only. The difference in the status may bring jealousy. Therefore He is maintaining the equal status so that no devotee becomes jealous of Jesus in the future. Due to jealousy the disciple may slip from Holy Jesus.

When He says that He is only the messenger, this shows the humble and submissiveness of Holy Jesus. He wants His disciples to be humble and submissive to the Holy Spirit through out their lives. For this purpose He sets Himself as an ideal. The Holy Spirit present in the human body of Holy Jesus is the essence of true and infinite knowledge as Veda says “Satyam Jnanam Anantam Brahma….” Humbleness and submissiveness are the fruits of the Divine Knowledge. Therefore the humbleness and submissiveness are the qualities of the Holy Spirit itself. This means whatever Holy Jesus speaks is the statement of the Holy Spirit only.

Did you ever hear about the DNA of God?

How there is spacific DNA that becomes active in Christians?

Just to be clear, I think love starts from God as well. We are asked to be perfect as the Father is perfect. However, the same principle can be achieved through philosophical groundwork as well as from revelation.

I believe
