How is God 'love'? I don't get what it means when religious writers say that. How is love the 'truth'?

He isnt love. That's just what passive judeo Christians want to believe. God is an all consuming fire who comes with a sword and a hatred for evil. Not this weak cuck the average kike mormon wants you to believe.

Well the Bible doesn't say that God is the exact same thing as love. It says more you should love God, both things being abstract concepts.

So to me, I take that to mean "devote yourself to keeping His laws as you see fit." But I can see how that wouldn't make sense to many others.

Serene, tranquil picture books and chapter books are closest to Ahura Mazda within this world. They could be considered as containing traces of Ahura Mazda's sparks or light.

Disturbing, macabre horror stories are closest to the decadent darkness of Ahriman. It is like a kind of murkiness and evil that pulls you down to Ahriman's lair.

Love is experiencing a tendency/inclination towards something you regard as good for you.
God being the father of reality and writer of the rules of existence, demands you to link your tendencies with his own tendency.
That is the same as giving you a moral rule set, a way of living based on what the religion considers to be good should be your way of living, so love religion, love the father, love reality, etc. God being love means that if you are genuinely inclined to care about his creation you are walking by his side, acting his will through his moral rules.

>> No.13187915

How is that love?

>> No.13188017

Objection 1. It seems that love does not exist in God. For in God there are no passions. Now love is a passion. Therefore love is not in God.

Objection 2. Further, love, anger, sorrow and the like, are mutually divided against one another. But sorrow and anger are not attributed to God, unless by metaphor. Therefore neither is love attributed to Him.

Objection 3. Further, Dionysius says (Div. Nom. iv): "Love is a uniting and binding force." But this cannot take place in God, since He is simple. Therefore love does not exist in God.

On the contrary, It is written: "God is love" (1 John 4:16).

I answer that, We must needs assert that in God there is love: because love is the first movement of the will and of every appetitive faculty. For since the acts of the will and of every appetitive faculty tend towards good and evil, as to their proper objects: and since good is essentially and especially the object of the will and the appetite, whereas evil is only the object secondarily and indirectly, as opposed to good; it follows that the acts of the will and appetite that regard good must naturally be prior to those that regard evil; thus, for instance, joy is prior to sorrow, love to hate: because what exists of itself is always prior to that which exists through another. Again, the more universal is naturally prior to what is less so. Hence the intellect is first directed to universal truth; and in the second place to particular and special truths. Now there are certain acts of the will and appetite that regard good under some special condition, as joy and delight regard good present and possessed; whereas desire and hope regard good not as yet possessed. Love, however, regards good universally, whether possessed or not. Hence love is naturally the first act of the will and appetite; for which reason all the other appetite movements presuppose love, as their root and origin. For nobody desires anything nor rejoices in anything, except as a good that is loved: nor is anything an object of hate except as opposed to the object of love. Similarly, it is clear that sorrow, and other things like to it, must be referred to love as to their first principle. Hence, in whomsoever there is will and appetite, there must also be love: since if the first is wanting, all that follows is also wanting. Now it has been shown that will is in God (I:19:1, and hence we must attribute love to Him.

love means cooperation, humans that evolved to cooperate killed off humans that couldn't work together. hatred brings division and strife.

forgiveness doesn't mean to be a little bitch, but at the same time you can't be fucking someone up for some petty shit they did to you ten years ago.
In ancient times there were blood feuds and family feuds, ancient grudges that kept the world stuck in the dark ages. A never ending cycle of revenge.

A god of excessive judgement and guilt might have kept order in ancient times when everyone was goat and sheep herders, but as civilization progressed and cities were built up, people lived in closer and closer quarters and had to learn to get along and cooperate.

With the destruction of the priesthood and temple by the Romans, the religion lost ultimate power over the state and the government.....

This is why Catholicism brought about the Dark Ages, because once again a religion gained ultimate state power. In a similar way to the Jews, the Catholics took money from the population, whereas the Jews took money and also animal sacrifices.
The reinstatement of a population of brainwashed people who gave resources to the priest class made it so that the only people who could read were the priests.

So when we think, "God is judgement, I am guilty and must monetarily compensate the church to appease his anger" The dark ages are brought about when a religion becomes a strong Theocracy. just look at how repressed many Muslim nations are.

When "God is Love" is in the peoples minds, and we are all to try and "Love your neighbor as yourself" we can cooperate with each other instead of devolving into witch-hunt dark-age bullshit where we all accuse each other of "sin"

Lad my fiancee is Christian and most weeks I go along with her to church and trust me if I decided to hang around at the end and ask that question literally none of them would be able to give consistent answers.

Perhaps it's just the kind of church that she goes to (it's called something like non-denominational post-pentacostal, whatever that means exactly) but it all seems incredibly wishy-washy and feelgood and propagated on the 'nice doctrine' where above all else you just have to be nice, not scripture, not teaching, not faith, not theology, not deeds, not commandments, not even god really, just be nice to people. Of course god gets a lot of the credit because they constantly affirm platitudes like 'god is love' and so on, but there's absolutely no conviction of fervor to any of it and no hard theology to fall back on.

Pic related was some guy going off on the same kind of problem he sees within the church, albeit from a Christian perspective.

I've asked at church and the people there won't even condemn sin or sinners no matter how horrendous their actions. They just feel that condemnation is a big, bad scary word that doesn't fall under the category of 'nice' and so they won't do it no matter what. It's quite bewildering honestly.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love (God) does not force Himself on anyone. Those who come to Him do so in response to His love. Love (God) shows kindness to all. Love (Jesus) went about doing good to everyone without partiality. Love (Jesus) did not covet what others had, living a humble life without complaining. Love (Jesus) did not brag about who He was in the flesh, although He could have overpowered anyone He ever came in contact with. Love (God) does not demand obedience. God did not demand obedience from His Son, but rather, Jesus willingly obeyed His Father in heaven. “The world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me” (John 14:31). Love (Jesus) was/is always looking out for the interests of others.
