We can argue theology
And Bible inerrancy or infallibility
Until we are blue in the face.
We can call each other heretics
And challenge each other on knowledge of verses
But if we don’t have God’s love, we are nothing.
Jesus didn’t intend to
Start a new religion;
He wanted to transform Judaism.
His intent was to fulfill the law,
To take it to its logical conclusion
And teach us its true meaning.
All the laws and the prophets are complete in
Love God and love our neighbor (not either/or).
Jesus soldered them together.
Differences in doctrine mean nothing;
Whether evangelical or emergent,
Love is what matters; His love is the answer.
