Agape love is what life is all about and you are distracted from it by dogma. Read 1 Cor 13 and get your priorities straight.
The son of man says;

"Abide in my love. You will abide in my love if you keep my commandments just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in His love."

"I made known your name to those you gave me out of the world and I will make it known so that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them."

"There is no greater love than to lay down your life for your friends."

"The words I spoke to you are spirit and life."


By these verses one can see it is the word of God that is the love one lays down for his friends which is the greatest kind of love.

There is no greater love than to spread the word of God to the people and lay down your life for your friends.

You are my friends if you do what I command you.

There is no escaping true faith that only works when one's beliefs in the 7 foundational doctrines about Christ are the truth (Heb.6:1-3 KJV)

This is why Jesus stressed faith and asked if He returned would he find faith............. because what is done not through faith is sin

Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.
Father, if you be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but yours, be done.
