WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH that Jesus is the Christ IS BORN OF GOD: AND every one that loveth him that begat LOVETH HIM also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: AND his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God OVERCOMETH THE WORLD: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even (THROUGH) OUR FAITH. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that Believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John 5:1-5. This "verse" is the Great Equalizer. The ONLY thing that matters here, the ONLY thing that counts is, IF you Love Jesus, you WILL Love people, PERIOD. Inside Church, outside church, gay, straight, man, woman, saved or sinner, IF YOU CLAIM TO LOVE JESUS, YOU WILL LOVE EVERYONE. Many "christians" have no love for their fellow man, so that makes them "christian" IN NAME ONLY. And some sinners are more "Christ-like" than some "christians". ONLY the Love of, and for, Christ, will manifest itself as Love for ALL others. Without Christ's Love, you're nothing. Therefore, ALL CHRISTIANS are equal, ALL Christians will Love, accept, edify, build up, encourage, AND Fellowship with one another anywhere, at anytime, and with anyone, SAVED OR LOST. Because they Love to bring the Lost TO Christ, and the Saved further INTO Christ. It comes down to, Preach, Teach, Talk, and Fellowship to and with, anyone and everyone, BECAUSE CHRIST DID, AND SO WILL WE. THAT, is the Love Of Christ filling you and overflowing out to others. Yes, baby Christians are just starting to learn this, as the Senior Christians show them the Way. To Love, is just Natural, in the Life of the Christian. The Inside Church and the Outside Church will TOGETHER, THROUGH CHRIST, reach ALL the sheep, saved and lost, with His Love, that we all TOGETHER will meet Christ and hear those Wonderful Words, "WELL DONE..." to Forever, Be Blessed.
