A lawyer asked Jesus, “What is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus answered, “To love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind. And the second is like the first–to love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:35-39)
Love? Think about that. God is love, wrote St. John. And God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, says the gospel (John 3:16). And the Lord loves you, Moses told the children of Israel (Deuteronomy 23:5).
Over many centuries, mankind has invented many, many gods; who can count them? But no one ever said, “Zeus is love.” Amun-Ra never expressed the slightest desire to be loved by the Egyptians, nor did his priests ever hint to the worshipers that Ra loved them. They would have thought any priest was crazy, if he said a thing like that.
Those things that are said about our God, the God revealed to us in both testaments of the Bible, those things about love–they have never been said of any God but ours. To say them about Marduk or Hercules or Quetzalcoatl would be absurd.
To say them about the State, the secular humanist god, would just be daft.
Our God loves us. The false gods don’t.
But then our God is real, and those others aren’t. Not a single one of them.
Walk in God’s love, and find faith. Walk in faith, and find God’s love.
