Love + Apologetics = Evangelism

It seems like the aforementioned pastor has reduced love to being nice. It seems like God's love isn't just nice, in fact His love often seems rather unpleasant. God disciplines the one's he loves (Heb 12) and while that might not be "nice", it is loving because it is for our own good. Was it loving of God to put the curse on man and the earth and force Adam and Eve out of the garden? Of course it was, but it wasn't "nice".

It seems like biblical love seeks that which is of greatest value, everlasting life, knowing God through His Son, and seeking that for another person requires knowing the truth about who God is and who the Christ is and why He came, etc, etc. It seems like love separated from the truth which redeems and brings eternal life is no longer love, but something less.

Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.

I urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. Jude 3

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 2 Peter 1:16
