Josh tries to stump me, "But Jesus also told the woman to go and sin no more."


But how many times did he tell us to forgive people? 7 X 70? Another words so many times that we lose count.

The New Testament is about love and forgiveness. The Gospel of John plainly states "God is Love." Period.

It's a "here' thing. It's about NOW. It's about the here and now. It's how we should be behaving now. It's proactive. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!" Not "don't do to others what you wouldn't want done to you."

Jesus goal was for us to experience here on Earth the love and forgiveness and compassion and oneness with God that he had experienced while he was with the Father.

That is what the church was supposed to be. A respite from this earth. A little piece of heaven on earth. Jesus wanted for his followers to all experience what he had experienced. Why? Because he loved them.

It's about LOVE. Period.
