When love is considered an illusion….a chasing of the wind
I have run into those of the christian faith who have said that the only thing worth anything is of course Jesus. Life is not worth living without him, love is not really love without him. Good deeds are all worthless, (Isaiah 64:6 all our righteous acts are like filthy rags). Love without Jesus, meaningless…acts of kindness, sacrifice, even the laying down of a life for a friend (greatest love of all?) worthless without Jesus.
This concept though following a line of doctrine (a rather common one today) faces the problem of real life conflict.
Many find meaning in their life, without Jesus. Many find life worth living.
When able to see good as bad, love as worthless, “righteous acts as filthy rags” one has to ask, is this truly what Jesus meant?
Is it possible that something somewhere was…disconnected? lost in translation?
