The Doctrine of Love
Love Everyone - even your enemies

Love is the Only Commandment of Jesus
John 15:12 - This is My Commandment, That ye Love one another, as I have Loved you.
You are known for your Love
John 13:35 - By this shall all men know that ye are My Disciples, if ye have Love one for another.
John 15:13 - Greater Love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Love fulfills the Law
Romans 13:10 - Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore Love is the fulfilling of the Law.
Love is the ONE WORD, which fulfills ALL the Law
Galatians 5:14 - For All the Law is fulfilled in One Word. Even in this; Thou shalt Love thy neighbour as thyself.
Loving Makes you Know that you have eternal Life.
1 John 3:14 - We know that we have passed from death unto life, BECAUSE WE LOVE THE BRETHREN. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
Without Love you are nothing
1 Corinthians 13:2 - ...I would be nothing, unless I Loved others. (CEV)
Love is Infinite and beyond all understanding
Ephesians 3:18-19 - And may you be able to feel and understand, as all Gods Children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high HIS LOVE REALLY IS; and to experience this Love for yourselves, though it is SO GREAT that you will never see the end of it or fully know or understand it. And so at last you will be filled up with God Himself. (The Living Bible)
Love - is the Commandment from the Beginning
2 John 5 - And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
Love is the message from the beginning - and the same message today.
1 John 3:11 - For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
"Love one another"- is THE COMMANDMENT.
1 John 3:23 - And this is His Commandment, That we should believe on the Name of His Son Jesus Christ, and Love one another, as He gave us Commandment.
1 John 4:21 - And this Commandment have we from Him, That he who Loveth God Love his brother also.
John 13:34 - A new Commandment I give unto you, That ye Love one another; as I have Loved you, that ye also Love one another.
Jesus reveals Gods Love to us.
1 John 3:16 - Hereby perceive we the Love of God, because He laid down His Life for us: and we ought to lay down our Lives for the brethren.
To Love - is to be BORN AGAIN. Thus you know God - when you Love.
1 John 4:7 - Beloved, let us Love one another: for Love is of God; and every one that Loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
If you Love, then God is in you.
1 John 4:12 - No man hath seen God at any time. If we Love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His Love is perfected in us.
If you Love, then You are in God. GOD IS LOVE.
1 John 4:16 - And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. GOD IS LOVE; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
You can believe anything you want, and you can follow any doctrine you choose. But as for me and my house, we believe in Love. Since God is Love, that means: We believe in God. Love everyone, as if they were your own child.
