    Is the Bible Trivia geared to children? God Bless you, and thank you for the beautiful presentation of The Word of GOD. Thank you very much.

    The bright and morning star says we should love one another like we love ourselves. In this case , we will not in any way enjoy to hurt our brother or sister considering that we hurt our very self suppose we we love brother or sister as ourselves.
  • Bernadette
    I think that we are fortunate that a King died for us on Calvary's cross because of his love for us, not our love for him but his for us. So we aught to have that unconditional love for our fellowman because if we do not love our brother we cannot love God. I thank God for His Perfect Love. Also we should shine a light so that men may see and glorify God.

    If I have a love for the people that are not in with God's people , then there is something wrong with me. I that is born of God will love God's people for I am one of them. Sometimes it is hard to love one of my own , BUT that is when I am to express God's love more. As with my own natural bor. sis. It is sometimes hard to love them to. BUT if I want a fellowship with my heavenly Father then I will love both my natural and spiritual brothers and sisters. My love in this way shows a reflection of my love for God and my Lord Jesus Christ !!!! Let us love one another !!
