Weekly Bible quote 91 from the School of Truth, read by andre

If ye abide in my word, then are ye truly my disciples - (John 8:31)
Only as I practise love, can harmony be fulfilled through me

Many people claim to be followers of the Christ who do not practise His teachings. The world would not be in the state it is today if the nations were governed by love; races would not be at loggerheads if their contacts were based on love; there would not be the numbers of divorces we read of daily if marriage were founded upon love.

The Christ preached nothing else but love. We have been told that we owe no man anything but love, that love is the fulfilment of the Law; that we should love our enemies and our neighbours as ourselves. There was no aspect of living that He did not relate to love, but do we abide in His word or do we give Him lip-service only and go our ways criticising, envying, denigrating, and calling ourselves followers of the Christ?

We should have a care, God is not mocked, and they who err against the Law of Love shall bring upon themselves the reaping of their own sowing.
