I heard a saying a few years ago that goes like this: Love without truth is a lie and truth without love is abuse.

So, why is it that people always emphasize one over the other? People go through life looking for love, even if its found in deception. People go through life handing out their truth with a sledge hammer. The Church is pretty good at the second one. We have put so much emphasis on being right that we have forgotten how to love. Kind of sad, since Christ spent his time on earth with tax-collectors and sinners. It's time for the Church to practice truth WITH love. Don't water down the truth, don't hide the love. Sometimes I would love to invite people to church, but then I'm afraid they'd see a business meeting.
