That is indeed what love is. And yes, the most worthwhile read in Paul's scriptures.
On another god though, I rather say he extended the true essence of that which God is to people who were only trying to figure out the "key" to life
and thereof to God through that which is known as the 'Torah' by modern and earlier jews.
Imagine the Torah as the world. It is the Law. Golden mean spiral, the nature of numbers and of how the world acts through them. The Torah today is
most commonly known as the books of Moses, by more esoteric standards as we would label it today it is that which I said above.
In these books of Moses it is spoken of the most high commandmests, i.e. the summary of the Torah which is what Christ said also. Love thy god with
all thy heart, mind and body. And love thy neighbor as you love thyself.
As should we all. Many Jewish scholars have acknowledged this.
I will say one thing more. God is all, everywhere, he is a double edged sword. Good / Bad. But what he wants us to do is live up to be as the before
mentioned quality. And therefore I say, nei, he is even more than good and bad. He is unmeasurable. But as he is reflected unto us in this world is
through good and bad.
We are not to be as the adversary, the one who acts as a traitor to good. Rather should we live to be the Messiah, The Son of God, all of us, the one
who acts as a fruit to good.
“For truly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass the law until all is accomplished. Whoever then relaxes
one of the least of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but he who does them and teaches them shall
be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” - I am not one for quoting much to convey my meaning, but since this is what is said he had said and I
feel it to be good to respect the Law/Torah I wanted to.
But I know you are referring to the slaughter of men, children and more that you are referring to by saying what you say. Don't take it all to
literally/seriously, we are but only men, how can we fathom the unfathomable?
Might as well say that God caused the tsjernobyl accident
. Maybe that is what they perceived who wrote those particular scriptures in the bible
which deal with those kind of topics. I say, God is All, but live up to be that which is Good within and be a Son to him. As I say, we are only men
and we know little to nothing, we can't even know the standards of God, only the standards that are within us which unfold for us through chemical
reactions and electrical currents and are conveyed to us as feelings. But we should live up to what we are given as we are judged by what we know.
Hope I have not confused or rambled on to much here.
God bless you.
