Love and Fear.
What is it that stops us from manifesting love?
Incorrect ideation - false images of God, such as a moral arbiter, or an enforcer of rewards and punishments give rise to false doctrines and dogmas, such as penal substitution, or original sin.
These things get in the way of love.
They can even cause hatred and murder.
A belief in the existence of hell can cause the most heinous crimes, like torture and execution.
But ultimately what stops us from loving is fear.
All false doctrines, including the existence of hell, are based on fear.
Look a little deeper below the surface and you will find fear.
This begins and ends with the fear of God.
And when we overcome our fear we are able to manifest love.
