What is Love?

 

My friend in this teaching What is Love I will show you the complete picture of Biblical Love

according to the scriptures rather than church tradition's or mankind's ideas of what they think

love is.  I am going to do my best to cover the many areas of Love as according to the

scriptures instead of my or some ones personal opinions.  In my teachings and studies I use

my Bible Library Software program.

Let Us Pray; Dear heavenly Father in your name, and in the name of your son & our Messiah Lord Jesus Christ,

we ask that you open up our hearts, minds and souls to your holy truths and your Holy words (The Bible), so that

we may hear, understand and see what you want us to learn and apply to our daily lives, so that we may Glorify

you among the believers and the non-believers in the hope that believers will be encouraged and strengthened in the FAITH and that non-believers may come to your son Jesus Christ in belief, repentance, self denial, picking up OUR crosses, and abide in Jesus Christ..  Amen

1) How can we love?  (Ex 20:3-11, DT 6:5, MT 22:37-38) - How can we Love God and our Neighbors

if we do not know what Biblical Love is? - How can we show Love to God as it is written in (Ex 20:3-11,

DT 6:5, MT 22:37-38) and love towards our neighbors as it is written in (Ex 20:12-16, Lev 19:18, 

MT 22:39) if we do not know exactly what Love is and how to apply that love?  And friend, don't you know

that when it comes to LOVE that "ALL" of the Laws & Prophets hang on the 2 greatest commandments 

(OT & NT) (MT 22:35-40)?  

Mt 22:40 confirms that the entire Bible is all about Love.  God wants us to do Good to him and to each other,

to show and act on real Love, his Gods Love. And it is written The greatest is Love to which is placed at a

higher degree than Faith and Hope (1 Co 13:13)?  So friend let us learn about what is love so that we can

actually love others in action and not just with words.  Let us especially love those who hate us, and those

who persecutes us.  as Jesus Christ has said Love our enemies and do good to them (MT 5:44-48) but with

truth (Sound Doctrine) (Titus 1:9, 2:1).

2) Its All About Love!  (Matthew 22:40 - To Top^ - Some will say the Bible is about Gods judgment, or

Gods justice.  Like the Jews they don't understand Gods purpose and meanings either.  And that is how

Israel got cold hearted and wayward hypocritical Pharisees. They thought just by being born in Israel made

them special regarding of how wicked their hearts and thinking was.  So sadly there are many of Christians

that also have the same type of thinking and hearts as the Jews did. 

Except there are Christians think as Long as they believe in Jesus Christ that they are pleasing to the Lord

even though many of them contain wicked thoughts and hearts.  That is why they don't understand that the

ENTIRE BIBLE IS ALL LOVE, US LOVING GOD AND LOVING OTHERS, (The 2 Greatest

Commandments). Us even Loving our enemies even those that are against the Christian Faith. BUT we

never approve of wickedness though by any means. 

So as it is written regarding the 2 Greatest Commandments, the Entire Bible Matthew 22:40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."

3)  Even the Demons Believe!  (Mt 8:29, Mk 1:34, Lk 4:41) -  - Many of Christians are taught by their

churches that all they have to do is to believe in Jesus Christ, that he is the son of God, and he rose from the

dead on the 3rd day, that is all there is to salvation.  But my friend even the demons believe that Jesus Christ

is the son of God, Rose from the dead and has all authority, (Mt 8:29, Mk 3:11, Lk 4:41).  Even James told

the people that even the demons believe that there is one God (James 2:19). 

So then why doesn't that save them?  It is because they DO NOT LOVE GOD NOR DO THEY LOVE

MANKIND, nor do they love their enemies, and so on.  The demons have no Love at all. THEY PRACTICE

SIN ALSO! 

Throughout my 29 years as a Born Again Christian I have come across many of Christians just like the demons

with not love, no compassion towards the poor, the widow, the criminal or anyone they do not approve of that

meets their standards of religion. 

Yet Jesus Christ has said;

Matthew 25:42-46

42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and

you did not visit Me.'

44 "Then they also will answer Him,* saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger

or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?'

45 Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the

least of these, you did not do itto Me.'

46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

The Christians without Love and that practices sin, Jesus Christ will say to them

Matthew 25:41

depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: - 

THOSE WITHOUT LOVE will be tossed into hell regardless of how much they say they believe in our

Lord Jesus Christ!

So my friend Faith must be accompanied by love, compassion, and truth in deed, not just in words and in

tongue (1 John 3:16-23) in order to be a valid Faith, for Love is greater than faith and hope (1 Co 13:13). 

As James states that Faith without works is dead (James 2:14-26).  In other words works is the

EVIDENCE of your faith, if you have no evidence (works) you have no faith! So then Your Salvation not

only depends on your Faith (Believing Gods Words) and doing them (Mt 4:4, 7:24-29), it depends on your

Love (Mt 22:34-40), your works as evidence you have Faith (James 2:14-26)!

4) Christians hard time loving others?  (Matthew 17:20, 19:26, Luke 1:37)  - (HURTING PEOPLE HURT

PEOPLE)  My friends when others abuses or uses you, or even hurts your children or your spouse you may

find it hard to have Love for those who has hurt you or your family.  Yes regardless of the evil that a person

does to us or to others, it is very hard for Christian to have pity and compassion on the lost misguided souls. 

But regardless of the evils we have done to others and to God, he has given us his forgiveness and his

kindness even though we only deserve death. 

So then why can't you likewise forgive them from your heart as God has forgiven you (Matthew 6:12-15)? 

We must guard our hearts and minds against evil emotions and evil thinking as it is written; Philippians 4:7 

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ

Jesus.  And it is written; 2 Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you 

from the evil one.  Do you not know that through Jesus Christ that you have the power and Capability

(Romans 15:13) to Love those who does you evil and forgive them? 

And do you not know that all things are possible with God that he is able to give you a heart of Love and

forgiveness (Matthew 19:26)?  Our own emotions can keep us from loving and forgiving others.  Our

motions and understanding get in the way of God's ways and will for us! 

As Jeremiah has said; Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked;

Who can know it?

So Now will you practice the ways of Jesus Christ to love and forgive those who do evil or will you practice

the wicked ways of satan and this wicked world to hate and become bitter with your un forgiveness?

5) If a Christian is without Love  (1 Corinthians 13:1-3) - My friend it doesn't matter how little or how much

you know and understand the scriptures of Gods Holy Words, if you do not have LOVE YOU HAVE

NOTHING AT ALL!  It doesn't matter if you are a Pastor, TV Evangelist a church member or a non church

member, if you do not have LOVE YOU HAVE NOTHING!  It doesn't matter how poor or rich you are,

or how popular or un popular you are if you do not have LOVE YOU HAVE NOTHING! 

Do you not know the TWO GREATEST COMMANDMENTS? My friend As of this date August 21st

2014 of being a Born Again Christian for about 29 years now I have seen countless numbers of Christians

who do not have love, understanding, compassion or sympathy to the poor, their enemies, the oppressed,

or even the handicapped!  I have seen so many quickly turn against each other, in strife, in division that it just

blows my mind.  And yet Paul said that we are all members of the one body. (1 Corinthians 12:12-31) and

that we are to walk in unity, in the spirit and bond of peace (Ephesians 4:1-6). 

Do you not know that God hates a brother that causes strife among the brethren (Proverbs 6:19)?  So then

why do so many act as if their brothers and sisters in Christ are their enemies rather than their family, a part

of the family of God through Jesus Christ?  And why do so many Christians speaks against the poor, those

on or not on welfare?  Or speak against those that are different than they are and this without cause to speak

such evils against others? 

So many speaks slander, that is falsely accuse others without any facts to be able to make a sound judgment (Discernment)?  What has happened to the Body of Jesus Christ, and where has it gone and where is it going

with so many not displaying Love with Gods Holy Truths, his Love or his Justice, but instead displaying hatred, bitterness and strife instead?

My Friend Without Love you are letting satan win and becoming your own worse enemy!  And without

Love you can not possibly Love God or Jesus Christ, nor be pleasing to them!  Do you not know that the

entire Bible is about Love, Truth and Justice?

6) Be Imitators of God, Walk in Love  (Ephesians 5:1-21) - As our Lord Jesus Christ has loved us, let us

also love him, by abiding in him (John 15:3-11) and walking in love towards one another is as sweet as the

love of Christ is, so shall it be as sweet as our love is when we love one another (John 13:34) so that others

may know that we are his proven disciples (John 13:35, John 15:8), followers of him who has called us and

then chosen us, the few (Matthew 22:14) to salvation, for service as the elect (Matthew 24:31) in Jesus

Christ.

Friends, if we love Jesus Christ, we will bring with us the testimony of Jesus Christ and we will keep the

commandments of God as it is written; Revelation 12:17 ................ on those who keep the commandments

of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus .......... And as it is also written; Revelation 14:12 Here is a call

for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.

AMEN (So Be It)!

7) The Two Greatest Commandments  (MT 22:34-40)  - First off my friend we have to look at these

verses regarding love as a commandment from Jesus Christ. - Both commandments is a brief summary

of the "Ten Commandments" to which is equal to the "Two Greatest Commandments".  Friend as it is

written about the laws (laws of Love) Jesus said that all of the prophets hang on those "Two Greatest

Commandments" (MT 22:40).  God wants our love towards him and our fellow mankind to be from a

sincere heart and mind.

Not out of an obligation or duty, but out of a true heart of love, out of understanding and out of concern

for others. If we want Love from God instead of his wrath (John 3:36), then we have to give Love first.

That is we are to Love God and then we are to Love our neighbor from a pure and sincere heart! In

order to be able to Love, our relationship with Jesus Christ has to be in check with the teachings of Jesus

Christ (MT 7:76, MT 24:35, MK 8:38, LK 6:47, LK 9:26, JN 8:47, JN 14:10, JN 14:24, JN 15:7,

JN 17:8). 

We are to worship God in spirit and in truth (Jn 4:23-24).  And we need to take better care of our mental

and physical selves as well.  The book of Leviticus are full of health and sanitary laws that will help us to do

just that.  How can we love if we are messed up in our thinking, or if we over eat, and such?  This is NOT

meant for those who that has mental or physical disabilities. They are just as capable of loving as

anyone else is!

8) Love The Poor (Dt 15:7-11, MT 19:21, 25:31-46, Mk 12:40, RO 15:26, Gal 2:10, Jas 2:1-13) - I have

heard of many of Christians who has wicked hearts regarding the poor, the needy, and the oppressed to

which is a sin not just against the poor but also against God, against the Love of God and his graces!  As 

(Dt 15::7-11) tells us not to withhold our hand to the poor, that we are to give to the poor. So many

Christians are full of arrogance and pride that only leads them to their own destruction. 

Even Jesus Christ tells us when we cloth the naked, give the thirsty a drank, take a stranger in or visit those

in prison we do it to him, to Jesus Christ (Mt 25:31-46).Even Apostle Paul got the Christians of his day to

collect money for the poor Christians that are in Jerusalem (Ro 15:26).  So then if we do not love the poor

how then can we be obedient to Jesus Christ, how can we be anything for the greatest of all things is Love

(1 Co 13:13).

And to add if we see a brother in need and shut our heart to him, the love of God is not in us for we contain

a wicked heart, not a righteous heart ( 1 John 3:16-23). 

My friend if we have not love towards all mankind, regardless of their financial status, race, or foreigner then

we have absolutely nothing, not even the love of God for his hand would then be against us, surely not for us

(1 Co 13:1-3)!

Do not treat the rich man better than the poor man, nor exclude the poor man from your Christian get together,

nor ignore him as if he were nothing, nor should you not socialize with the poor man.  If you do, then you are

not showing the love of Christ, instead you are being worldly/carnal with no spirituality of Christ; as it is

written; (James 2:1-13).

9) Gods Wrath is on those that Oppress and Exploit Others (Zechariah 7:8-14, Malachi 3:1-7,

Matthew 22:30-40)    - Those who oppress and exploit the poor, the window, the orphan, the worker, and

even Aliens (even the illegal foreigner) in your land will receive Gods Judgments because they did not fear

the Lord.  The Jews because they did not fear Lord and hurt many others God has led them into the captivity

of their enemies. 

They did not received Gods love nor blessings, instead they had received Gods anger and judgments. 

They had suffered greatly because of their wicked and cruel hearts.  So like wise the same shall be to those of

today, even those in the churches saying they are of the Christian Faith (Mt 25:31-46). So then if you do not

want the wrath and Judgments of God against you that can come to you in many ways, such as flooding,

tornados, earthquakes, lose your job, lose your loved one and so on, it would be best to not even speak against

the foreigner, the window, the poor, the orphan, the worker in any unjust and unrighteous ways!

10) Love Your Enemies (Matthew 5:43-48 & Romans 12:20-  - In times of Old the people would say Love

your neighbor, but hate your enemies, but Jesus Christ reminds us to Love our enemies and do good to them,

and by doing so we will be at peace with-in our selves with out any bitterness or struggles in our hearts.  If

we love only those who love us, then what good have we done and in what way have we been obedient to

Jesus Christ. 

For God Loved us even though in the past we hated him, we persecuted him and completely ignored him. 

So if he can love us, and call his to his son Jesus Christ for we were his former enemies, then why can't we

love our current and past enemies as well? If God can forgive us then why can't we forgive those who do

evil to us? This is how we will be at peace in Jesus Christ!

11) Love is putting our selves last (Mark 9:33-35)  (being a servant of all) - If we love others, we will never

act like we are better than they are, and we realize that we too deserve Gods wrath and judgments as well

as they do.  We will remember from where we first came from and who we actually were in our wicked

conditions.  We are called to serve Jesus Christ by serving others.  We are not called to be served, but to

serve (Servants to all (Mt 20:26). 

Friend we serve others according to our talents, our abilities, our time and our resources that God has

blessed us with (Mt 24:14-30).  We should never be selfish with all that God has given us.  We must serve

and share our blessings with others so that our service to God is done and his Glory is known to all!

12) The Love Chapter (1 Corinthians 13) - is a general run down of the meanings to what Jesus meant when he

told us to "Love Your Neighbor" (MT 22:39).  If you wish to serve and obey Jesus Christ, then you should

take what Jesus said about loving your neighbor with the Love chapter 1Co 13 and study them, then compare

them to how to act towards others to make sure that you are actually loving your neighbors.

13) Love is Patient (1Co 13:4a) - Friend, what is the meaning of being patient?  The MSN Works 9

Dictionary puts it this way; capable of waiting: able to endure waiting, delay or provocation without

becoming annoyed or upset.  Friend, especially when we are very tired, or had a really bad day, this can

be a difficult thing for us to do because of our weak flesh that constantly fights against the spirit of God, the

spirit of truth. (Jn 14:17, 15:26, 16:13

But this is something that we must learn as we grow in our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.  We must work out

our salvation in trembling and fear (Php 2:12).  Look at it this way, God has been extremely patient with us,

with all of our sins, and our stubbornness or we would not even be here today if he wasn't patient!  So let us

learn to be patient with others as God has been patient with us.

14) Love is Kind (1Co 13:4a - Friend to be kind is to be polite, courteous and thoughtful towards those around

us.  Being kind also means to use our manners, to be respectful in regards to how we interact with others.  If

we are driving on the road, we share that road with others.  So let us be courteous drivers.  If we be at the

store or the mall, let us be patient, and be kind with the workers and with the customers.  Even though there

are people that we do not like, we should still use our manners, and be kind to them when we interact with

them.    As Jesus said; "Love Your Neighbor".  (Exodus 20:12-17, Leviticus 19:18 & MT 22:39)

15) Love is not Jealous (1Co 13-4b - We should never compare our selves to someone else, weather it be

what they have, their financial status, their success or their appearance as so many do.  We should not covet

anything of our neighbors (Exodus 20:17).  We should be confident in Jesus Christ and only examine our

selves (2Co 13:5) as the Holy Scriptures states.  Let us never be envious of others, because if we do then

we are not displaying the Love of Jesus Christ to others. 

And friend BEWARE of the TV programs, movies, music and such that encourages sin and takes sin lightly! 

They encourage people to compare them selves to others rather than compare our selves to Jesus Christ. We

are to be Christ Like (Romans 8:29).  So friend put off the envy, the jealousy and put on the image of Jesus

Christ (Eph 4:17-32) without comparing your selves to some one else (2Co 10:12).

16) Love does not act unbecomingly (1Co 13:5)  - Friend let us honor Jesus Christ in public or in private by

acting in a loving and dignified way and let us not disgrace or dishonor Jesus Christ in any way.  A good

example is near Thanksgiving, the day of "Black Friday" is very unholy to say the least..   Many people on

that day behave worse than animals with rabies.  Their behaviors are so disgraceful that most cultures would

look down on those people with absolute disgust.  And their behaviors is for what?

For a good deal on products such as a new Elmo doll, that will soon wear out and end up in the trash

anyways?  Friend that is just one example of acting disgracefully. And that is not loving our neighbors, and

not showing the Love of Jesus Christ towards of others. That behavior does not glory God at all!

17) Love does not seek its own (1Co 13:5a)  - This my friend is an unselfish type of Love, that involves putting

others before our selves in giving of kindness, helping, ministering, and caring to and about others.  We do

not seek our own happiness without first considering others. When we seek our own happiness does it hurt

others in the same process?  Is our attitude "Me First, Me First?"  And in our own households is our happiness

based upon our own selfish needs without first considering the needs of our children, or our spouse? 

Do we go out and do our own thing and leave our children and spouse at home? Divorce usually happens

because of one or both spouses saying, "Me First, Me First"!  And when we drive are we considerate

towards other drivers, and if possible, let others out of a side street to get in front of us?  Or do we cut others

off on the road ways and drive like we personally own the road? 

Friend the reason why divorce rates are so high even in the churches is because so many people seeks their

own ways, rather than putting their spouse first and have a relationship that is a giving to the other spouse &

children.  ALWAYS divorces are the results of selfish and self seeking people with out any regards to

the other spouse or the children that NEEDS BOTH PARENTS IN THE HOME!

18) Love is not provoked (1Co 13:5a)- We are not easily offended, nor are we easily provoked to anger if

we have love towards the other person.  And we do not quickly get overly emotionally anything unless

someone dies, or are in a serious situation. Those who are at peace with their relationship with Jesus Christ,

will be calm in a normal or general situation.  We are confident in our Lord Jesus Christ, and we are not

insecure with our relationship with Jesus Christ.

There can be exceptions to this rule such as a car wreck, an explosion, or one that displays a righteous anger

as Jesus Christ did about the people that bought and sold at the church, the House of God and Prayer and

such.  But as far as under normal circumstance we are to react in a calm normal attitude towards others

without easily getting bent out of shape. 

That is why we are told to not even trust our own hearts, they are deceitful (Jer 17:9) because our of 

understanding we can not rely on nor trust in our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).  We don't see what the

Lord sees, and many judge by mere appearance (John 7:2$) that covers up what's really hidden in a persons

heart, rather than making a right judgment..

19) Love does not take into account wrong suffered (1Co 13:5b)  - Loving others means for us not to keep

no record of wrongs that others have done to us. We must forgive them for their sins that they have done to

us (Mt 5:44-48).  We should never think back after putting our hands to the plow (Lk 9:62), and say this

person did this wrong to me, or that wronged to me.  When God forgave us, does he keep a record of what

we done wrong in the past?  No he doesn't! 

And if we keep record of wrongs done to us, then how have we forgiven others?  And how can God not

keep records of our wrongs that we have done to him and others if we have done that to others?  It is written

that if we want God to forgive us, that we must forgive others (MT 6:12, 6:14) .  If we don't then God will

not forgive us either!

20) Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness (1Co 13:6a)  - If we love others we will not delight in people

falling into sin, or suffer for bad things happening to them.  It is written; Proverbs 24:17 Do not rejoice when

your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles, 18 lest the Lord see it and be displeased,

and turn away his anger from him.  We will not rejoice even when our enemies fall due to their sinful choices

that they make. We will not rejoice over other peoples sufferings. 

If anything we will pity them, and have compassion on them and hopefully pray for their salvation in the hopes

that they to may obtain Gods Saving Grace as we did.  Friend that is why many of the shows and movies on

TV that we have no business watching.  Because they like most wicked people do rejoice over the fall of

others and make fun of them.  We should never boast over the sufferings of others regardless of who they

are.

21) Love rejoices with the truth (1Co 13:6 - The truth as Jesus is the way, THE TRUTH and the Life

(Jn 14:16) we shall rejoice over with all praising and with all dancing unto our Lord Jesus Christ.  Love

desires THE TRUTH in all things about all things regardless of what mankind says and does.  That truth is

only found in God, not in mankind!  And we do not seek the truth from mankind, but WE DO seek the

truth in Jesus Christ and we are happy with that and we rejoice with all measures of joy in the Lord Jesus

Christ! 

And we will also study and search the scriptures for Gods Holy Truths so that we may learn and apply his

holy ways to our lives and in that we will have much more reasons for rejoicing in the truths that we learn

from God in Jesus Christ!

22) Love bears all things (1Co 13:7)  - Love endures (put up with, tolerate) mankind's imperfections,

mankind's sinfulness.  God is their Judge, not us (1Co 5:13) the unsaved, those outside of the Body of Jesus

Christ.  We do not judge them. We only judge those inside the church, the Body of Jesus Christ (1Co 5:12). 

We our selves are not perfect, mainly due to our weak flesh, our weakened state of a weak mind, that so

many of us are prone to be. 

How can we look at the faults of others, such as nit picking them, without first considering our own

imperfections, our own downfalls and our weakened state.  So let us not pretend that we are more deserving

of Gods love than others, because we are just as much as sinners as they are.

23) Love believes all things (1Co 13:7)  - In other words my friend, this means to believe a person has good

motives, good intent unless direct evidence is seen that the person does not have good intent.  We are not to

believe a person has evil intentions unless there is evidence that says differently.  We should not prejudge others

ever by their appearance, or any other way if there is no evidence of them being evil. As Jesus told us to not

judge by mere appearances, but make a right judgment (Jn 7:24).

24) Love hopes all things (1Co 13:7) - This is the hope that all things turn out well, even with bad people, even

with those who either lost hope, or has no hope, even when natural disasters strikes, or when mankind himself

does evil or plans evil and such.  The hope in Jesus Christ that all things in the end may turn out for the good,

and glorify God in accordance to his Holy ways and his Holy will for his good pleasure (Php 2:13) and for the

good of those that loves him.

25) Love endures all things (1Co 13:7 - With love we shall endure (to tolerate-to stand firm) in persecutions,

from our parents or relatives and such that hates us, from those who hate us, from those who try's to damage

our reputation, falsely accuses us, puts us in prison for false reasons and even puts us to death for false reasons. 

This is the hope that we do not lose our faith in Jesus Christ, that we do not deny him, that we do not

compromise our faith under any condition or circumstance regardless of mankind or their government laws or

even church regulations and traditions.

26) Love Never fails (1Co 13:8 - Love (agape Love) is always guaranteed to never fail.  Love itself, if done in

Gods way, not mankind's way, in truth (Sound Doctrine) is extremely powerful to the point that Peter says;

that "Love Covers a Multitude of Sins."  It is Love that satan, his demons and his servants (unsaved mankind)

DOES NOT HAVE!  And it is Love that conquers all forms of evil if it be small sins or large sins, LOVE

CONQUERS THEM ALL

The greatest weapon against temptations, and against satans arrows (attacks) is LOVE!  LOVE NEVER

FAILS in any and all circumstances!  It is when we do not use LOVE and the Full Armor of God that we fall

into sin, and do evil our selves, and then by that we hand the victory of the battle over to satan, until, we use

the LOVE OF GOD & Full Armor of God, our LOVE TOWARDS EACH OTHER that we start winning

the war of Good and evil once again!

It is written; Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the

authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the

heavenly places. .

27) Greatest is Love (1 Corinthians 13:13)  - There are some that think that they are doing well by having "Full

Faith" or by having "Hope" in Jesus Christ.  And yet some of them lack one very important thing.  That is love

towards God and towards their fellow mankind.  That love involves, concern, compassion, understanding and

service to others.  And without Love, their "Faith" and their "Hope" is absolutely worthless and has no benefit

for the kingdom of God, nor will their "Faith" or their "Hope" bring anyone to the saving grace of our Lord

Jesus Christ.  So they profit nothing (1Co 13:1-3)!  So their faith is "Bankrupt"!
