“Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the Law. For the Commandments, ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ ‘You shall not covet’ and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ Love does no harm to a neighbour; therefore love is the fulfilment of the Law.” Romans 13:8-10
Is it Unloving to be Pro-Life?
The moment you start doing any kind of serious ministry, whether it is for standing up for the right to life for the preborn; opposing the pornography industry; standing up for Biblical marriage between one man and one woman for life; or opposing the GayGB agenda you are accused of being “unloving”. It is extraordinary how much of the world continually berates Christians with “not being loving enough”, or “not understanding what love is.” Who defines what love is?
Is Love Passive Toleration of Evil?
According to Hollywood, love is sentimentality, emotion, feeling, tolerance of evil, not saying anything that could offend anyone else, etc. You should say nothing and do nothing to protect your children from the pornography industry, from the gay agenda and from radical Islamic Jihadists.
The Biblical Definition of Love
What does the Bible say? “Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the Law.” Romans 13:10
Love is Seen in Action to Protect the Innocent
One of the commandments of God is ‘You shall not murder.’ The positive implication of that command is: you shall preserve innocent life against murder. The churchman in Texas who got up and shot the assailant, 29 December 2019, saved lives and received the Texas Governor’s highest award for courage, for swift and effective action, which saved many lives. It is not unloving to protect your neighbour. It is not unloving to risk your life to save and serve others.
