“Today’s “Good Samaritan” reality” – the God bit


“One of the operative principles of love is that love does not rest as long as there is an inequality in love.”
Little Monk: “I Wish I’d Said That…” – Church Set Free

Seems to sum up the earlier post: “Today’s “Good Samaritan” reality”

Love does not rest
As long as there is an inequality
In love

Love does rest
Inequality
Love

Love
Inequality
Love

If I had been blessed with a physical body, a functioning mind and a beautiful soul as now – but through no choice of my own was also blessed with loving those the law (still does in some places) said was unlawful – would I love any less?

And if I who have always loved lawfully love equally with those who love “unlawfully” – how do I love any better than they?

And I if I am loved “even before I was born” – then how come I am not loved quite the same after being born.

“One of the operative principles of love is that love does not rest as long as there is an inequality in love.”

Disallowing love and a sacred covenant of love between two lovers and their God – our God – is an inequality.

Disallowing a covenant of love between our God and two lovers is an inequality of love. It is an inequality of a sacred covenant.

“John says the infinite love of God will not rest until you are equal to God in love.”

God will not rest
Until you are equal
To God in love

I do not know how to say it any more clearly. The bible does not say that only a man and a woman – as defined biologically – can have a sacred and blessed loving covenant shared with God.

We say that. We argue about that.  We “pass by” on that.

God will not rest
Until you are equal
To God in love

So just why do we – the church (or to be blunt: you and I) – rest so easily

In inequality?
