Love, when perfect, drives out fear, for fear implies punishment, and the man who feels fear has not attained to perfect love. 19 We love, because God first loved us. 20 If a man says 'I love God,' and yet hates his Brother, he is a liar; for the man who does not love his Brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.
