Love and Truth
The word “love” is being greatly distorted today, not only by non-Christians but also by many Christians. Today, love is being portrayed and understood as tolerance–acting toward each other with no standard of truth. Love is just a warm feeling we have toward one another. But by simply repeating Jesus, the apostle John defines biblical love this way: “This is love: That we live in obedience to God’s truth” (2 John 1:6).The action of love is always based on truth, or it is not love. So, what does it mean to love our enemies?
