Questions To Ponder On Absolute Love

Absolute Love


Our homework for this week is: What does it look like in your life when you are Absolutely Loving? Write out a vision for yourself….

Is it ugly or is it beautiful?”  “Is my behavior giving of myself, expecting nothing in return and am I reflecting back the Unconditional Love I am receiving from God?”

Historical Background

The 4 Absolutes are a series of questions designed to determine where self-will is blocking us off from God’s Will. Their purpose is to separate God thoughts/behaviors/actions from self-thoughts/behaviors/actions. Dr. Bob used the 4 Absolutes and described them as “yardsticks to measure decisions.”

The roots of the 4 Absolutes are Christian. They are derived from the New Testament Matthew 5:1-7:29 in Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount” and further outlined in the book “The Principles of Jesus” by Robert E. Speer.

Today, the philosophical depth offered by the 4 Absolutes is obscured and shrouded with more confusion than in the past when program first began.

The question for Absolute Love is: Is this action/inaction beautiful (based on faith) or ugly (based on fear)?

Questions to ponder on Absolute Love:


Why is fear and not hate the opposite of love ?

Why are love, faith and beauty analogous to each other?

Why is a fear-based action or inaction considered ugly? 

Why is a faith-based action or inaction considered beautiful? 

Please think about these questions for our meeting this week. I would love for us to share our thoughts and ideas with each other.

I am hoping that I will be able to post more on the blog on this topic. But, more will be revealed……

In love and service,

Shira
