A Noble Quest

The witterings of a sorely deluded soul who enjoys debate with herself and others.

God is Love

How can people justify things like this:

Well, there must be a good reason. Let me go and get my Bible and see what God and Jesus have to say: 

God is love. (John 4:8)

Hmm, this has started badly. How can I bash gays now? 

43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5: 42-48)

Aha! Jesus told us to love our enemies! That means I can say that we hate them and should murder them! Wait...? Are you seriously suggesting that I have to love everyone? That's a tad disappointing. 

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also. (John 4:20-21)

So by not loving other human beings, we are not loving God? That is utter gibberish, let me find that verse which explicitly states God hates homosexuals.  

Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. (Romans 13:9)

By making people become depressed, oppressed, repressed and making them turn away from their faith, I am doing no ill to my neighbour therefore my love fulfils the law. 

The Bible doesn't really talk about love anyway, it's only mentioned about 730 times which is pretty inadequate. And have patience, I'm still trying to find that verse in the book of God Hates. 

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: (1Peter 1:22)

Jesus loved the Pharisees. Jesus said for us to love everyone and for some reason he didn't go, "except" afterwards. 

My search for the verse that states "God hates fags" is going badly so I'm going to make it up. 

And on the 30th February, God commanded that we hate all homosexuals because they have a good dress sense and have made the musical wonderful. (God Hates 69:666)


  1. If you want...Click on “dashboard” on the top right of you main blog…then click on “add a gadget” on the left side column…scroll down and click on “Follow” widget and follow directions.

    There is a "follow by email" wedgit you will come to first, but...think of what it does to a email folder if one has a couple thousand followers.

    just sayin'

  3. I've read this post three times now...I love your sense of sarcasim and can see that I'm going to enjoy being a follower of yours. Keep it coming.

    1. Thank you for the gadget tip, still getting used to this blogging lark so the help is appreciated! I'm glad you enjoyed the piece, means a lot. I'm afraid sarcasm seems to be an inbuilt function in the English (advocating a stereotype here for once).

  4. Thank you for your powerful testimony. I'll post again in 2 weeks.

    Sarcastic and a Brit... can't get better than that. God help me with mine (with my sarcasm, it's not like I have a Brit locked up somewhere). Sarcasm comes off me like water off my fingertips in the shower. God help me ; )

    1. No problem. If what happened in my past can do good in the future, it'll make it worthwhile.

      It's a powerful combination. I'm glad to hear you're not a kidnapper, alas, that is something I cannot claim. Thanks for your comment, it actually made me laugh which not many people can do with the written word! Have a great day and God bless.

  5. Just started following you, I have a blog too if you want to check it out. Couldn't agree more, God is love.
