Being LDS when I start talking about religion it causes some stress with those that read what I write. I hope this is not the case this time. As I have been studying I come up with some ideas that might not cause a fuss.
#1 - Matt. 6:33 Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven, the first thing you should do is start at beginning.
#2 I Corinthians 13:1-13 faith, hope and Charity, Charity is the greatest ( I would have typed the whole scripture out, but I am lazy). As we seek the Kingdom of Heaven there are many things we need to do, this is one of the most important.
#3 Prov. 10:12 Love covereth all sins. I want to reinforce that love or charity is very important to find the Kingdom.
#4 John 3:16 God so loved the world that he sent his Son
#5 John 13:35 If we have love one to another we are his disciples
#6 John 14:15 If we love the Savior we will keep the Commandments
#7 John 15:10 The Savior said that if we keep the Commandment, he will love us
#8 Matt 18:1-5 Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven, it is not the smartest or the one who keeps more of the commandments, or understands the bible the best. It is someone that can love like a child loves.
#9 Gal 5:14 For all the law is fullfilled in one word Ye shall LOVE your neighbor.
#10 I John 2:10 Those that love there brother abideth in the light.
#11 I John 4:16 God loves us, and those who truly love God and there brothers and sisters dwell in God and God in them.
I know I have done several things wrong, I should have put the verses in but it make the article so big I wouldn't want to read it, besides anyone that would get anything from this will want to read the verse for them self anyway.
I also know that I have cherry picked the scriptures, I am not trying to prove anything here, those who think the doctrine I believe in is wrong that is fine. I hope we can all agree that love is important, more important than who is right about how many heavens there are or which come first grace or faith.
The point I hoped I made is that love, service and a childlike faith is a large part of what God is looking for.
Is there anyway that those of us that love Christ can put aside the fighting over who's Savior is the best, and join with all those who want to help each other make a difference in this world. If someone needs help with a garden, I can help, I'm good at that. If you know someone that needs some help in the Boise Idaho area let me know. If something is happening in the government and our input is needed, lets get together and try to make thing better.
