How can someone who is Bible oriented not accept that God is love?


Here is what the Bible says in one of the most easy to understand of all verses: Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. Now I read that as "because God is love:" What happened to Hell and damnation. Did it just go poof! I can not read a portion of the Bible as contrary to what is so simple. How can others?

    ALL books r in "chronological order!" If u KNEW WORD u'd know Jesus born, walked earth, promised HS, DIED, asked us 2 OBSERVE disciples, asked disciples 2 WAIT for HS, sent HS,chose Paul 2 act n HIS Stead, asked us 2 follow disciples!

    That's co! Rt?

    IF one follows Christ, they BELIEVE every WORD in the Bible or I Cor 10:21!

    IT IS WRITTEN and one can't change HIS WORD to suit "self!"

    HIS WORD is NEVER "iffy!" IF WRITTEN, IT IS SO and IF one doesn't follow, SATAN!

    "By defining god as a supernatural "feeling" like love, it would explain the purpose of having a deity in the first place."

    TRUE!

    MUST be "Holy Spirit filled" which is TRUE LOVE as defined by GOD!

    I Jn 4:7 "Is born of GOD" (Holy Spirit filled)!

    I like what you have to say but I do not get; "even going as far to ruthlessly convert those who they deemed are on an "errant" or the "wrong" path.

    ERIC, I give WORD & if you have "no respect" for what HE'S SAID; "DELETE, but there are "consequences" & I've given Scriptures (Ezek 3:18; Rm 14:13-23; Lev 19:17; Titus 1:13; I Pet 4:17; +)! Do what u feel makes u "a man" & FORGET GOD!

    You wouldn't know what a "Christian" was if he bit you in the behind! Your "disrespect" for the WORD of GOD indicates that! You don't care what HE SAID just what u believe!

    "Gehenna was actually a garbage dump where things were burned or disposed of forever." Sounds like "hell" to me!

    Heb 13:8 GOD SAME as in OT! HE had WRATH then & does NOW! Don't let translations fool u!

    What does this mean?: GOD "IS" LOVE (KEY): For those who are "IN CHRIST JESUS" (Holy Spirit filled)! However, if not living according to The Gospel of Christ (one of the reasons HE died), and filled with the Holy Spirit, HE is not so "LOVING!" What?

    I do not agree with your idea of love. I have a wife and four children. My love is not conditional as you suggest God's love is. Cite other scripture that came before but Christ spoke and that was the last of that. Did John lie in his account?

    TRUE! One deeper: When filled w/Holy Spirit, HE helps us "obey his commandments" automatically! He "grows us" (II Cor 3:18) into Spiritual "Maturity" via our BELIEF & FAITH n HIS WORD! It's so easy (Matt 11:29)!
