Does anyone have a problem with the characteristics of love stated in 1CORINTHIANS 13:4 Love is patient,love is kind. it does not envy, it does not boast. It is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
If so, please explain why.
I don't have any issues with it all, however Love has many definitions and sometimes it is hard to hold up to God's words.
I simply believe it is a very good description myself.
Love is a doing thing.
Great concept, but only wishful thinking that it came your God.
Here is the type of being your God is:
I the Lord your God am a jealous
God (Exodus 20:5)....for the Lord,
Whose name is Jealous, is a jealous
God (Exodus 34:14).
Yep, and I am jealous for my wife. If anyone takes liberties with her, I have every right to be furious and hold the man accountable. Jealousy is a measure of love under certain circumstances.
I think you need to look up the word Jealousy.
Jealousy; Bible.intolerant of unfaithfulness or rivalry: The Lord is a jealous God.
That's not what jealousy is.
Jealousy is a second-hand emotion that is a part of an insecure person as I understand it
That's nice. Why are you telling me? You posted to my post, when I was talking to someone else.
Or were you giving them the definition you pulled from the bible?
Last time I checked, humankind's definition are the rule of thumb and those are the ones I go by, so you spouting something from a bible...doesn't quite get the job done, considering the bible is NOT a dictionary.
Very nice definition of love. But since it is found in the Bible, why is it some many who claim to be Christian do not follow this definition of love?
I think it is a very limited description of the compass of love - and if anyone needs a book to tell them what love is then they have never experienced the real thing.
Change the word "love" to "Jesus" and you'll get what is behind this Scripture. No one has lived up to that descripiton, except Him. But, in Christ, believers are accepted by God as though they had and they begin to display significant advances toward consistently loving, even their enemies. Note, I wrote "advances toward". We'll not be perfect in this life.
If we all strived for the type of Love that is in the Bible, the world would be a better place. Even if you are not a Christian you have to agree to this. Because if we Loved our neighbor as ourself, we would all serve each other and thus many of this worlds ills would be healed.
The love that is in the bible?
Which love do you mean? The love god will give you if he does not kill you for not believing in him?........or the conditional "You can be loved if..." of the NT?

It is not your job to condemn me because I disagree with you. It is not your job to hold me in disdain. It is not your job to change me, persuade me, or convert me. The heart of Christianity is being Christ-like. Christ loved everyone, including those who disagreed with him, ignored him, ridiculed...

I have enjoyed many "debates" with folks here on the Hub, but in the long run, its seems those that believe still believe and those that don't still don't. Why is this?Could it be, Christians, that we allow the nay-sayers to have their say while we are trying to not be...
