Love is Love: Good? (A)

​”Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.” 3 John 1:11.

What we’ve heard in recent years is that “love is love, but is it good?” and friends of mine who are youth pastors has noticed with the students they works with on school campuses and youth fellowships that they don’t understand why the church is against “internal security and sexual related issues” or whatever. They say, “Well, it’s about love, right, and you all have been saying Christianity is about love” and what they don’t understand is that both could be engaged wrongly, not good at all or excessively, in different context. 

So, just because someone says something is loving doesn’t mean it’s loving or good, and when we speak carelessly about love and tithe, it reminds me of this title I put up: “You keep using that word “love”. I don’t think it means what you think it means,” so we have to be clear about grounding love in what Scripture says, not just our feelings. Read your Bible to be sure. Peace be unto You!
