I keep hearing (and reading) people say “God/Jesus is love, therefore, if He were here today, He would love me how I am.” Generally, this statement is used to validate someone’s lifestyle or choices that usually contradicts what the Bible actually teaches as right and wrong. Yet, to call God/Jesus loving only paints a part of the picture. Its like saying that an elephant is like a water hose because you felt its trunk. Sure, you’re kinda right, but if you stop there, you’re really, really wrong because you missed the whole picture.
