What Love is NOT:

For a man who holds the position of THE leader in his local church to fundamentally misunderstand the meaning of “Love”, the very thing The God he claims to preach is, is a horrifically egregious error (redundancy intentional).

This system of thought is called the Ptolemaic model; named after Claudius Ptolemy who lived around 100 converted PNM fileA.D. But then something happened in the 16th century – the Copernican revolution. This paradigm shift swept in, challenging a belief people had held for over 1,400 years. While there is much to be said about testing the commonly held and typically unquestioned beliefs we often hold, we’re not headed in that direction.
