Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13). This does not necessarily mean preventing gunfire from hitting one's friend (in a literal sense), but to DISREGARD one's SELF by being open, honest, TRUTHFUL, no matter WHAT the consequences!
Since my arrival on HP, I have told ALL TRUTH from the Word of God and in doing so, have been called everything but "a child of God." When one can NEGLECT to receive things which would benefit sins (SELF) mentioned in I John 2:16 which says "...the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life..." seeking NO GAIN but desiring TRUTH, that is TRUE LOVE!
The WORD (GOD) of GOD (LOVE) is TRUTH and when responding to questions with HIS WORD, I feel I am displaying LOVE! GOD'S DESIRE is ""NO ONE IS LOST!"
Mark 8:36 says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"
Get Ready Believers! If one is not living under the New Covenant, "After the Day of Pentecost" or "After the Cross," Galatians 1:6-9 applies and ALL will be "ACCURSED!"
Another TRUTH, but "IN LOVE!"
