Ranch . Once again, you're using circular reasoning. The bible proves
nothing." Wrong,This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ
laid down his life for us.”(1 John 3:16)Passover (Lev 23:5) –
Pointed to the Messiah=(Jesus) as our Passover lamb (1 Cor 5:7) whose blood
would be shed for our sins. Jesus was crucified on the day of
preparation for the Passover at the same hour that the lambs were being
slaughtered for the Passover meal that evening (John 19:14).
@CMTM;Once again, you're using circular reasoning. The bible
proves nothing. Superstitious people wrote the bible - not god - it is nothing
but hearsay. No matter what word was used, it does NOT mean "god" does
Ranch “If one can conclude that "god's" love is *evident,
one can certainly conclude that Dumbledore's love is also
evident.”?Evidence of God's love. For God so loved=(G.
Apape/love) the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes
in him shall not perish but have eternal life.(John 3:16)Love(Agape) is
described in 1 Cor 13. The Greek word agape is often translated
“love” in the N. T.. “Agape love” is different from
other types of love?Agape love involves faithfulness, commitment,
and an act of the will. It is distinguished from the other types of love by its
lofty moral nature and strong character. Agape love is benevolence, and willful
delight in the object of love. Unlike our English word love, agape is not used
in the N.T. to refer to romantic or sexual love. Nor does it refer to close
friendship or brotherly love, for which the Greek word philia is used.
Beautiful. I'm grateful that so many share the belief in the importance of
loving all people and are willing to put effort into doing so.
@Moderators;Dumbledore is as provable as 'god'. If one
can conclude that "god's" love is evident, one can certainly
conclude that Dumbledore's love is also evident.Print the
comment and stop being discriminatory to those who don't believe as you do.
very nice thank you forsharing the experience
It is wonderful to hear and learn of happy people supposedly blessed with the
love of and from god. Nevertheless, it is confusing to judge the whole by the
exception. Of earths seven and a half billion people what is the meaning of the
relationship of the percentage of the few blessed and the many cursed. In the
context of nature it is merely circumstances. In terms of a personal almighty
god as implied in this article it makes no-sense at all other than one's
personal prejudices and superstitions.
