Religion is an Argument. God is Love.
Love is the complete and demystified will of God. Our theology can reach no further than that for all its efforts, the good intentions, the imagination or the brains behind it. If God is love, as scripture assures us that he is, then love is not the rehearsal, nor is it the opening act. It is the thing itself. Love is the connective tissue, the strong threefold cord that binds heaven and earth together. And not to diminish the importance of guidelines or foundational elements of our faith, certainly, but they don’t carry the necessary weight. With 35,000 Christian denominations, what are we really saying to the world or to ourselves about Christian love, or Christian unity?
