The Jesus Creed: Loving God, Loving Others by Scot McKnight(Part 3)

Parts 1 and 2 of my study of  The Jesus Creed:  Loving God, Loving Others by Scot McKnight can be found here and here

"Loving God properly means tending to those in need.

Those who follow the letter of the law often miss fundamental teachings about loving God and others.

Look to the side to see the need in others.

Christians are not called to tolerance; christians are called to love. Toleration condescends; love honors.

From Francis Schaeffer's The Mark of a Christian: 'Love and the unity it attests to--is the mark Christ gave Christians to wear before the world. Only with this mark may the world know that Christians are indeed Christians and that Jesus was sent by the Father.'"
