Truth always teaches love and forgiveness.
To men, love and forgiveness seems to be powerless, but they really are powerful. They are full of what is the most effective kind of power, spiritual power.
Men are use to dealing with the natural kind of power, force, domination and control, which have outward signs of what appears to be an effective form of power. However, using those forms produces negative results in everyone involved.
People are only changed from negative to positive by spiritually powerful means. Love and forgiveness are the most powerful spiritual forces in existence. They have changed men from the very beginning and they will always change men. Love and forgiveness bring permanent changes.
To know Me as Love is the beginning of living in the atmosphere of Love. When you know Me, then you can walk in love and be love to all men.
I John 4:18 &19
