If God = Love (does) Love = God

*originally written in 2015

Is God love? According to the Bible I think I can safely say that:

GOD = LOVE

(and it is unconditional love at that.)

A friend and spiritual father (Lloyd Rindels) once broke down 1 Corinthians 13 (you know that love chapter) in terms of relating it to a proper view of God.

Lloyd said read it with taking out the word Love and replace the word God,

It gave me a different view or understanding, and I liked it.

4 God is patient and kind; God does not envy or boast; He his not arrogant

5 or rude. He does not insist on His own way; He is not irritable or resentful,

6 He does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but He rejoices with the truth.

7 God bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 God never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. ……

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

aka a loving God/ever loving Parent who will always have my back no matter what crap I put myself in, He will be a proud biased Papa standing up for and bragging on me… “Look what my kid can do!”

Is that the God you know? Does it sound good? Does it sound to good? It is not the God I knew I saw a God of judgemental wrath and a Jesus who was my go between. ..

I heard and read of an unconditional love but had no clue of what that meant to me…

He is unconditional love poured out just for you!

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.
