What is love? What is the power of love? Paul and Jesus seem to be at odds with one another as to its power. Jesus tells a lawayer that he should indeed love God and neighbor to inherit eternal life. Paul tells us that the Law cannot save anyone (Galatians 3:21-22). Even the law to love God and neighbor cannot save.

Often people run their theology by "I think" or "I feel." What an awful foundation for religion! In this case truth is totally subjectivized. This means there is no Truth at all but mere opinion.
The choice is clear. Do we make ourselves god or do we receive Jesus as LORD? The former is not only idolatry but also crass arrogance. The latter is not only truth but eternal life. After all, our Lord did say, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
