Article XXXII That no person who shall deny the being of God, or the truth of the Protestant religion, or the divine authority of the Old or New Testaments, or who shall hold religious principles incompatible with the freedom and safety of the State, shall be capable of holding any office or place of trust or profit in the civil department within this State.

Matthew 22:37-39

“And He said to him,  ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’  This is the great and foremost commandment.  The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.'”

Love to others - The more we believe, the more we love: faith is the root, and love is the flower that grows upon it.  “Faith working through love” (Gal. 5:6). ATFG p. 98

Love of God – Christ suffered more for His spouse than ever any husband did for a wife.  he suffered poverty and ignominy.  He who crowned the heavens with stars was Himself crowned with thorns.  He was called a companion of sinners, so that we might be made companions of angels.  He was regardless of His life; he leaped into the sea of his Father’s wrath to save His spouse from drowning.  GMP p. 245

Happy Valentines Day!

I Corinthians 13: 1-13

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have {the gift of} prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  And if I give all my possessions to feed {the poor,} and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

Love is patient,

love is kind {and}

(love) is not jealous;

love does not brag {and}

(love) is not arrogant,

(love) does not act unbecomingly;

(love) does not seek its own,

(love) is not provoked,

(love) does not take into account a wrong {suffered,}

(love) does not rejoice in unrighteousness,but

(love) rejoices with the truth;

(love) bears all things,

(love) believes all things,

(love) hopes all things,

(love) endures all things.

Love never fails; …

But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.


It is interesting to note that If you replace the word “love” with “Jesus”  in the above verses.  It fits perfectly.  Try it.

Now, try it again but this time replace it with your name.

If your like me not only does it not fit… it’s almost embarrassing to the point of being laughable.  Our goal as believers is to become more Christlike.  May the love of God shine in and through you each and every day!

“History has proved that a society based on loving it’s neighbor is more stable and productive than one that is based on killing it’s neighbor.” – James Teasdale, Christian Missionary, Kenya.

“Every thinking man, when he thinks, realizes that the teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally impossible for us to figure ourselves what that life would be if these standards were removed.  We would lose almost all the standards by which we now judge both public and private morals; all the standards towards which we, with more or less resolution, strive to raise ourselves.” – President Theodore Roosevelt
