    How do I love Jesus?

    Nancy's Answer Here!Do I love Jesus as I love a friend?  The love of a friend is different from the love of God. The Greek word for the love of a friend is Philia. This love is more of a convenient kind of friendship that does not involve sacrifice, and it can fade with distance and time. The love of God never fades and is not based on someone’s performance.

  • Did God's plan of salvation require sacrifices before the cross?

    The Messiah Jesus had to be the one to serve as a substitute for man because He is the only sinless man that could pay the price for sinful man.
