Charity (part 3)

"Rejoiceth not in inquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;" (1 Cor. 13:6)

Charity is ravenous for truth. What is truth? Well, basically, whatever the Bible teaches, that is truth. Who is truth? Jesus Christ is truth. But not just any 'Jesus.' It must be the one presented to us in the Bible as God's eternal Son. Therefore to know the Lord is to know truth. Many religious people use 'love' as a motivation for ecumenism. This stems from a misunderstanding of true Biblical love and certainly a misunderstanding of this clear and simple verse.
