Context Readings

God's Love Revealed

20 If any one may say, I love God with divine love, and may hate his brother, he is a liar: for the one not loving his brother whom he has seen, with divine love, is not able to love God, whom he has not seen, with divine love. 21 And we have this precept from him, that the one loving God with divine love also loves his brother with divine love.
