YOU KNOW IT IS PRETTY EASY TODAY TO FIND THE VERSES ON ANY TOPIC IN THE BIBLE.
YOU HAVE “STRONG’S CONCORDANCE” - EVERY WORD IN THE BIBLE; YES ALL THE PLACES WHERE SAY THE WORD “ LOVE” IS USED.
YOU ALSO HAVE “NAVE’S TOPICAL BIBLE” - WHICH I JUST USED TO DO THIS LITTLE STUDY ABOVE.
YOU SAY YOU LOVE GOD; THE VERSES ABOVE PROVE IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT, BECAUSE AS THEY SAY, “TALK IS CHEAP”!
AH, WHAT ABOUT THE 4TH COMMANDMENT - THE SABBATH DAY COMMANDMENT; IF YOU LOVE GOD YOU’LL BE OBSERVING IT!
OH DON’T GIVE ME THE CRAP THAT IT’S “DONE AWAY WITH”!
MOST “CHURCHES” WILL SAY YOU SHOULD OBEY THE 9 COMMANDMENTS OF THE GREAT 10; BUT IT SEEMS THEY SAY AND TEACH, IF YOU LOVE GOD, YOU DO NOT TODAY HAVE TO OBSERVE THE SABBATH DAY COMMANDMENT!
AND THAT IS JUST PLAIN STUPID AND VERY WRONG THEOLOGY!
IF YOU LOVE GOD, YOU LOVE HIM ALL THE WAY, NOT PART OF THE WAY.
HE THAT HAS AN EAR SHOULD HEAR WHAT THE LORD SAYS IS THE LOVE OF GOD!
