Love Bombing - In the Church

Love Bombing - In the Church

In scripture, and probably in today’s culture, LOVE seems to be a common word used. And an emotion desired by pretty much everyone. After all, scripture does say, God is Love. 

Now there have been some “unhealthy” expansions on what Love is. It is not appeasement. It is not the infamous, “Unless you let me do this, you don't love me”. That is not how love is demonstrated.
