The core answers to the problems we face as individuals, families and in a culture thatis quickly unraveling are found within the pages of Scripture. We hold that the source of these answers is found in the first five books ofthe Bible known as Torah (also known as the Pentateuch, “the Law”). Torah, is aHebrew…
Love God Love People Honor His Word
You can love people without loving God, but you cannot love God and not love people.
Yeshua, (aka Jesus), was asked by a scribe which command from Yehovah comes first. This was recorded in Mark 12.
One of the Torah scholars came and heard them debating. Seeing that Yeshua had answered them well, he asked Him, “Which commandment is first of all?” Yeshua answered, “The first is, ‘Shema Yisrael, Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai echad. Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One. And you shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” vs 28 – 33 TLV
The Torah is filled with statements about loving God and showing that love through obeying his commands. The Prophets speak of this as the Writings also do. All three, the TaNaKh – Torah, Nevi’im (prophets) and the Ketubim (writings) all agree – we must love God and love our fellow humans.
The same is true of Apostolic Writings (aka New Covenant) where Yeshua – the Son of God said:
If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. Joh 15:10 TLV
Loving God means honoring his word. Loving God means loving people. Honoring his word is loving both.
Scripture summed up in three short statements.
Join us in our adventure at Answers in Exodus while we find ways to do all three in the context of protecting life through love and law, and making abortion unthinkable to those who love and keep the Hebrew Scriptures and Apostolic Writings, the whole Bible from cover to cover.
We Make Him Visible to Others
Together we can find ways to take words off of pages and turn them into actions that preserve life and demonstrate love in a culture that loves death more than life.
Read on in this section for Scripture based ways we wrestle with making our invisible Creator visible to those who do not know him or have experienced him by loving him, loving people and honoring his word.
