Many Christians say life is all about “Loving God and loving one another,” probably because that is literally the mission statement of many local churches. There is nothing wrong with that. After all, Christ said these are the two greatest commandments. The problem for these professed Christians and visible churches is that they seem to rarely ever define biblically what it means to love God and love one another. Hint, this is not it, Amy.

Loving God means having genuine affection for Him in your heart because of His great mercy in Christ, which leads to you keeping His commands by the power of His Spirit.

Loving one another means helping other people love God by having genuine affection for Him because of His great mercy in Christ, which leads them to keep His commands by His Spirit.

This photo represents nothing of the sort.

Those who truly love God hate sin and love righteousness. They never rightly celebrate what is wicked. Those who love neighbor call them to repent and believe on Christ. Those who love neighbor call them to bend the knee to Christ. Those who love neighbor call them to glorify Christ. Those who love neighbor never encourage them either passively or actively in their sin.

This is Christianity 101, saints.

phesians 5:11-14
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible, for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,
“Awake, O sleeper,
and arise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”

Whoever says to the wicked, “You are in the right,” will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations, but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them.
Proverbs 24:24‭-‬25 ESV

The "truth" the way the world loves, is not the same love God is talking about. The world may use Biblical language but that does not make them saved.

How to tell you don’t love God:

His laws are burdensome.

1 John 5:3

[3] For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.
