The Bible is the greatest love story ever told. It is summed up for us in the greatest verse of the Bible: â€œFor God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting lifeâ€ (John 3:16).
The Apostle Paul speaks of Christâ€™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 â€œwhile we were yet sinners, Christ died for usâ€ (Romans 8:5). The Apostle John echoes the Apostle Paul by presenting the following proof of Godâ€™s unconditional love: â€œHerein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sinsâ€ (1 John 4:10).
There is, in my mind, no greater proof of the prevalence of spiritual darkness and deception in todayâ€™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.
