Dogma and Emotion, Counter to the Love of Christ

If you follow rules rather than living a life of love, you may end up with a kid like Laura who is hurt and looking for love. The reality of love is real and I know it. If your life is lacking love, joy, peace and kindness, then you are not in the will of God and deceiving yourself as a Christian.

In order to be a light for the world, you have to have the love of God within that drives you to love one another.

The love of God when known melts away a person’s desire to mock and treat others in a demeaning manner; instead, it seeks to build others up because the love of God is meant to be shared.
