Is Love All We Need?
By David J. Stewart | December 2014
Ephesians 1:21, “Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.”
In the year 1967, the first worldwide television broadcast was aired, featuring the hit song by The Beatles, “All You Need Is Love.” In fact, love is not all you need. You'll go straight to Hell when you die if you don't repent of your unbelief and believe the Gospel. You need to be born-again, you need Jesus Christ!!!
As the New World Order develops into a Tyrannical Godless Global Totalitarian Police State, the unifying message is peace and love. In reality, no one born since World War I has ever lived in a time of world peace. The Bible foretells that the Antichrist “by peace” (through stealth takeover and deception) shall destroy many. Daniel 8:25, “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many...” The world's masses, including religious groups, are all coming together under the umbrella slogan of “LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED!” This is why apostates like Ravi Zacharias are hobnobbing with the Mormons, and Billy Graham spiritually fornicating with the Roman Catholics!
The great Biblical teaching is balance. When a Christian starts hating sinners, they have left off God's love; but when a Christian starts compromising with false prophets and rubbing shoulders with sinners, then they have left off righteousness and truth. For example: It is theological error to teach that God hates sinners (John 3:16). Likewise, at the other extreme, it is also theological error to say that God tolerates the homosexual community in their sins (James 4:4). God hates all sin, including the sin of homosexuality, which the Bible calls “vile affections” in Romans 1:26. Love without truth is meaningless; truth without love is ineffective. You must have both truth and love. Therefore, love compels the Christian to hate falsehoods, and truth compels the Christian to love everyone.
Without question, the Lord Jesus Christ is the most misquoted person in history. I'm so sick of heathens like Reba McEntire saying that Jesus taught “judge not” as justification for supporting same-sex perversion, lesbianism and sodomy. Jesus hated wickedness and preached against it!!! John 7:7, “The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.” The sicko sinful world thinks that murdering children by abortion is OK, and men sodomizing each other's hairy backside is OK, and dressing 8-year-old girls up like prostitutes is OK, and looking at photos of your neighbour's wife naked in a Playboy magazine is OK, and Americans murdering 1,455,000 Iraqi's to steal their natural resources is OK, and slutty women walking around in their underwear in public is OK, and that using sexually suggestive advertising to sell products is OK; BUT IT'S NOT OK WITH GOD, IT IS AWFUL WICKEDNESS THAT BRINGS THE JUDGMENT OF GOD (Romans 1:24-32; Hebrews 9:27; Ecclesiastes 12:14; Matthew 12:36)...
Colossians 3:5-6, “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.”
When the heathen world talks about “love,” what they really mean is sinful compromise. They interpret love as tolerating sin, going along to get along, being a Team Player, et cetera. The truth is that the wicked world has no comprehension of God's unconditional love. To the unsaved man, people always have selfish intentions, only giving to get. The born-again Christian has God's Holy Spirit indwelling them, Who compels us to freely give, unconditionally love and mercifully forgive our enemies. This type of excellent spirit is foreign to the unsaved world.
Speaking the Truth in Love
The Bible teaches us to speak the truth in love. Ephesians 4:15a, “But speaking the truth in love.” People don't care what you know until they know that you care. Truth without compassion, mercy, generosity and love is ineffective; but love without the truth is sinful compromise, ecumenical apostasy and a road to Hell. You must have a balance of grace and strength:
I hear some preachers spewing hatred against sinners, which renders their preaching ineffective. No one loves God who hates sinners. We're all sinners and we ought to love everyone, regardless of what they are or have done. I preach against the sin of homosexuality, but I love them equally with God's love, because they are just people. It is a sin to hate sinners!
Then there are the lukewarm apostate preachers who speak about love, unity and cooperation; but they leave off the wrath of God against the wicked, and eternal punishment in the fires of Hell for all Christ-rejecters. It is also a sin to claim to love others, while refraining from telling them the truth of God's Word because it might offend them or cost you money.
Our goal ought to be to maintain a balance between love and truth, beauty and strength, grace and law. This is the most effective preaching, and Biblical! There's nothing more disgusting than a pastor who doesn't preach on the subject of Hell, fire and damnation.
John Lennon's Fantasy
In his song, “Imagine,” John Lennon's fantasy of a utopian world without religion, countries or judgment in the afterlife is not realistic, because it totally ignores the reality of man's inherent sin nature. All men are sinners by nature and by choice. There was actually a time in history when John Lennon's dream was a reality, when Noah and his family departed from the ark. There were only eight people. There were no countries. There were no religions. There was no famine, war, struggles, nor oppression. Yet, in just a few short chapters from Genesis 7 to Genesis 11:1-9, the world had once again totally corrupted itself into a hellhole!!! Man is the problem, because when Adam sinned, he opened the floodgate that allowed sin to enter into the world, and so death by sin (Romans 5:12; 6:23).
Love is not all we need, unless you begin by loving God with all your mind, heart and will. Only then can we truly love our neighbour as our self. The problem with the heathen world is that they preach loving one's neighbour without first loving God. The error of such foolish thinking is that we cannot truly love our neighbour without morality, and morality is synonymous with faith in a holy God. How can a Godless world that loves committing sin love their neighbour? Morality is loving thy neighbour as thyself!!! When the world speaks of love, they exclude the righteous and holy God of the Bible who condemns abortion, same-sex marriage, homosexuality, drunkenness, lust, adultery, public nudity, covetousness, greed, stealing, fraud, gossip, et cetera. The entire concept of universal brotherhood and loving one another apart from faith and obedience to a holy God is a grand illusion. It just doesn't work that way. Apart from obeying the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, our nation is doomed!
The Bible teaches that God manifest Himself to the world through the Son of God, Jesus (1st Timothy 3:16 - Note: All Scripture references are only to the trustworthy King James Bible). Jesus told us to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES in John 5:39 to learn of Him. Jesus' name is even called THE WORD OF GOD in Revelation 19:13. John 1:1-3, 14 teach us that Jesus is the incarnate Word of God. Hence, when the Bible speaks about loving God with all our mind, heart and will, it also means to love Jesus with all our heart!!! To love the Son is to love the Father. And if you truly “love” the Lord Jesus, then you will keep His commandments as He said in John 14:15. Jesus also said in John 15:14 that we are His “friends” if we obey Him. Wouldn't you want to be a friend to your dear Savior and love Him? I very much do!!!
The idiotic world is always searching for answers, yet never finding any real solutions. 2nd Timothy 3:7, “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” We are living in “perilous times,” as foretold in 2nd Timothy 3:1-7. Families are struggling greatly nowadays. American society is so perverted, corrupt and insane that Chicago, Massachusetts and Philadelphia have installed condom dispensers in its high school and middle school bathrooms. STD's are epidemic amongst U.S. teens. The morning after pill is now available to teen girls as young as 14 without parental consent. Our nation has gone insane!!! Public schools INDOCTRINATE children that there is no God, that they evolved from stardust and apelike creatures, they are taught that homosexuality is OK, and how to have premarital sex, even being given the condoms, and New Age religion, et cetera. Not one person who plays a part in the destruction of a child's faith in God will escape God's wrath in eternity (Hebrews 9:27)!!!
The Adulterous, Drug-Infested, So-called Hippie “Love” of The Beatles
THE BEATLES (scumbags) were all major drug addicts!!! The Communist sympathizing music group (see their hit song, “Back In The U.S.S.R.”) admittedly took the following recreational drugs: Benzedrine, amphetamines, cannabis (marijuana), LSD, cocaine and heroin. The Beatles started taking the drug LSD in 1965.
"All You Need Is Love" is a song written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. It was first performed by the Beatles on Our World, the first live global television link. Watched by over 400 million in 25 countries, the programme was broadcast via satellite on 25 June 1967. The BBC had commissioned the Beatles to write a song for the United Kingdom's contribution.
SOURCE: All You Need Is Love - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wikipedia helps propagate the big lie by both John Lennon and Paul McCartney that their song “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” was inspired from a drawing by John Lennon's young son; however, hardcore fans of the fornication-promoting (see their lame song, “Why Don't We Do It In The Road”) Rock band fully know better...
The song perhaps most often associated with The Beatles' use of LSD is Lennon's Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. While the group always denied that the title was a reference to acid - Lennon and McCartney both maintained it was inspired by a painting drawn by Julian Lennon and named after a schoolfriend - there is little doubt that the Through The Looking Glass imagery was the product of drug intake.
SOURCE: The Beatles and drugs | The Beatles Bible | Page 5
Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was all about the drug LSD. The lyrics are clearly imagery seen while taking a trip on LSD. I won't even waste more web space to post their stupid drug-crazed lyrics. The Beatles inspired U.S. youth to experiment with recreational drugs perhaps more than any other influential group. Millions of youth have either died, committed horrible crimes or had their lives completely ruined because of recreational drugs (i.e., drugs taken for fun to get high). Statistics show that drug abuse and addiction cost Americans over $484,000,000,000 (that's 484 billion dollars) annually!!! The same statistics show that half of all major crimes committed in the United States are related to drugs. This includes half of all violent crimes, such as murder and assault.
1st Corinthians 1:29-31, “That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.”
1st John 4:8 and 4:16, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” ... “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” When The Beatles sing “All You Need Is Love,” they are saying that you don't need God if you have love for others. It's all a big lie of the Devil. The Beatles were drug-addicts, snorting cocaine and shooting heroin. Drugs open the door for demons to come into your life. Please watch the sermon titled, The Curse Of Crystal Myth, by Pastor Danny Castle. Also, see Doors To Satan!
The Beatles were also infamous for indulging in backstage sex orgies with groupies (traveling prostitutes), a common sinful practice amongst Rock 'N' Roll bands. The Beatles epitomized immoral sex, drug abuse and demonic Rock 'N' Roll. Sadly, John Lennon and George Harrison are already burning in Hell, because they died in their sins without receiving Jesus Christ as their personal Savior (John 8:24; 2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). My friend, love is not abusing drugs, glorifying drugs with your music and influencing tens-of-millions of young people to abuse drugs. That is hatred! The Beatles influences untold tens-of-millions of youth to support the Communist Soviet Union, commit fornication, experiment with illegal drugs, despise authority and reject Christianity.
The Beatles promoted Roman Catholicism (see their hit song, “Let It Be”) and Eastern Religions (see their hit song, “My Sweet Lord,” which worships the Hindu god Krishna). The Beatles blasphemed Jesus Christ. John Lennon in his book, “A Spaniard in the Works,” portrays Jesus Christ as, “Jesus El Pifico, a garlic-eating, stinking little yellow, greasy fascist bastard catholic Spaniard” (A Spaniard in the Works, p.14). Lennon boasted that The Beatles were more popular than Jesus Christ. Isaiah 13:11, “And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” More evil is done in the name of love and peace than anything else.
Love is the Greatest Commandment in the Holy Bible
But wait a minute, doesn't the Holy Bible teach that LOVE is the greatest commandment of all? Yes, that is true, but it begins with LOVING GOD...
Matthew 22:35-40, “Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
Love truly is all you need if you mean loving God first and then your neighbour second. It must be in that order. Please understand that Jesus said upon these two commandments HANG ALL THE LAW THE THE PROPHETS. You can't just disregard the Bible and replace it with a phony type of selfish living and call it “love.” LOVING GOD and LOVING YOUR NEIGHBOUR are the foundation upon which all the Word of God is based!!! But you MUST start by loving God. The world does not love God, which is why they don't obey Him. Jesus said in John 15:14 that if you love Him you'll keep His commandments. The two greatest commandments in the Bible are really just one, that is, TO LOVE!!! But you must begin by loving God or else love means nothing. Jesus told the Samaritan woman in John 4:24 that God is a Spirit and MUST be worshipped in spirit and in truth. Again, love without truth is meaningless; truth without love is ineffective. You must have both truth and love.
The world is unthankful and unloving toward God; thus, they are also unappreciative, greedy, selfish and unloving toward each other as well. The world wants to have a system of honor without morality. It simply doesn't and cannot work that way. Mankind by sinful nature is selfish, greedy, adulterous, angry and disobedient. Apart from loving God first, any apparent so-called “love” for one's fellow mankind will be very short-lived. It is not love at all. Even prison inmates have a code of honor system. The world lives by their own book, which is constantly changing as they move further away from God. It sounds very noble that “love is all we need,” but what motivation is there to love one's neighbour if there is no God, or if God is not loved by man?
Those who hurt others do not love God. The lying thieves on Wall Street that steal and cheat millions of Americans out of their money, retirement, savings and homes don't love God, not one bit. They are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. The Beatles' propaganda of “All You Need Is Love” is a massive fraud, intended to unite people together in error, unbelief and sinful compromise. The Devil is only one individual, but evil (true evil) is a group of men collaborating together to do evil. All recent U.S. Presidents have been caught in hundreds of lies before, during and after leaving office. That's not loving one's neighbour as thyself. It sure isn't loving God. When we love God, we are compelled by God's Spirit to love others. I speak to born-again Christians. The unsaved person walks in spiritual darkness and doesn't know God's love.
The one thing woefully lacking in this wicked world is genuine love. Many people carelessly throw the word “love” around, clueless of what love really is. Millions of poor in Africa are starving to death because no one loves them. Over 200,000,000 people have been murdered over the past century by war, most of them innocent civilians, because men don't love each other. World War 3 is coming, which will make WW1 and WW2 look like child's play. God loves the poor and afflicted, but He has placed the responsibility upon each of us to love our neighbour as our self. If men won't love God first and obey Him, beginning with the Gospel, then neither will they love one another. The first and foremost great need of the entire world is THE GOSPEL OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!
If you don't love God, you truly cannot love man, because man is created in the very image of God. Mass-murderers Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Mao Zedong mercilessly slaughtered tens-of-millions of innocent human lives because they denied God's existence! Men are created in God's own image, so if you deny God, only then can you truly hate humanity. Or in Biblical terms, you cannot love thy neighbour as thyself if you refuse to love God first with all your mind, heart and might. How can you obey the second great commandment if you refuse to obey the first? Faith in God is the basis of all genuine liberty and freedom, for without faith in God Communism is the natural consequence. To the same degree that Americans forsake the God of the Holy Bible, to that same extent human life is losing it's value and meaning. Without God people are lowered to the same level as animals.
God is love and those born of God also love. But love that does not seek to please God by searching and obeying the holy Scriptures is not love at all. That is instead sinful compromise. Ecumenical apostate ministers like Billy Graham, Joel Osteen and Ravi Zacharias use love as a pretense to rub shoulders with religious unbelievers, for the sake of fame, the good life and filthy lucre (the love of money). The Holy Bible is so down-to-earth and practical. Jesus warned that no man can love God and wealth. It is diametrically impossible!!! Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” My advice to people is stay away from ALL of the big-time, money-making, preachers across America today. You find that humble country preacher, who says it like it is from the Holy Bible, and he can't be purchased. Bless God, I'M NOT FOR SALE!!!
So when you hear the heathen world talking about love, love, love—and playing The Beatles propaganda song which preaches “Love Is All You Need”—
love God who doesn't love sinners!”
