God’s Common Ground

April 14, 2018

We believe there is only one God, and that God has defined himself as love. So, are we open to recognizing that “love” is a revelation of God in all world faiths, not just Christianity? John seems unequivocal that “whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him,” and that if anyone says “I love God,” but hates his brother, he is a liar.  We have no doubt that Jesus is God and the clearest picture of God’s love, and we know that Jesus is the most direct path to experiencing God’s love. But we can’t get around the reality that “whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him!” Is this true even if they don’t know Jesus?
