The Bible is the greatest love story ever told. It is summed up for us in the greatest verse of the Bible: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

The Apostle Paul speaks of Christ’s incomprehensible love for us (Ephesians 3:19). He also explains how it has been clearly manifested to us. According to Paul, it is made evident by the fact that “while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 8:5). The Apostle John echoes the Apostle Paul by presenting the following proof of God’s unconditional love: “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:10).

There is, in my mind, no greater proof of the prevalence of spiritual darkness and deception in today’s politically correct world than the condemning of the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the greatest love story ever told, as hate-speech. Furthermore, to condemn Christians as hate-mongers for sharing the truth of Christ in love to a lost and dying world is tantamount to condemning a caring surgeon as a butcher for his use of a scalpel on a critically ill patient.
