Galatians 5:6

... The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

 

 

There you have it, over 800 pages of Holy Scripture encapsulated into eleven words spoken by Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ, in his letter to the Galatians - no doubt, the Heart of the Bible! The rest of this website will dive into the richness of this Scripture. Enjoy and be blessed.  

 

Note: The Underlining of words is my addition in hopes the reader will grasp the magnitude of the quoted Scripture. The red letter text is of course, words spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ. 

 

Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please God ...

 

Romans 14:23

...and everything that does not come from faith is sin.

 

Ephesians 2:8-9

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

 

Matthew 22:34-40

Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

 

Psalm 97:10

Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

 

Proverbs 3:3
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

 

Proverbs 16:6
Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the LORD a man avoids evil.

 

James 2:5
Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?

 

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

 

This Scripture in 2 Timothy above is the key to all understanding. If you do not believe this Scripture to be undeniable fact then you cannot expect to receive anything from God's word. I am presenting only facts on this website; not opinions, analysis, inferences, or suppositions from myself or others. 

 

So given the fact stated in Galatians 5:6 that the only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love, we will look at what the Bible says about faith and love.  www.heartofthebible.com

 

All Glory, Honor, and Praise to God our Father and to our Lord Jesus Christ!

 

 

Somthing I often ponder is: If over half of the United State's population porfesses to be Christian as they do, and the homosexual community in America is estimated to be about five percent of the population, why is it that the homosexual community seems to run our government? Are american christians afraid to vote their faith? Has our demoninational (factional) infighting paralized our sence of civic duty?  Are we somehow convinced that we should not care what happens to the leaders and orgizations elected and instituted to be in authority over us (whom the Bible commands us to obey)?  I don't get it and I don't like it. Do we just not vote? Or do we really think moral standards are not important in our government leaders?  Has our selfindulgent lives consumed us to the point we cannot see the decay that is destroying this once great nation?
