Yes. All actions could be said to need something in order to identify them by - to help us understand that which motivates said actions. Love would be no different.
IF "God" is defined as "love which is expressed through human beings" THEN yes.
If god is love, just an emotion, why call it god?
Is love to be defined as 'just an emotion"?
Do you give god all the credit for the love you give and get to god or to the individual?
If I defined 'god' as 'love', then yes.
You do not seem that simple.
Well I did say "IF"
Show the definition of love that you are using that says a genocidal mass murderer knows how to love.
Do you see a lot of love in Stalin and Hitler as well?
IF I define such actions as actions of 'love', then I probably would do, yes.
But do I actually?
I assume this is coming from the argument that the old testament idea of god is often reported doing the deplorable?
My own focus is on the idea the we all exist in some kind of holographic simulated reality experience so that naturally implies at least one creator [probably more]
So in that, if I disregard the claims of storytellers who managed to have their stories of their ideas of 'the creator' published in the Bible, am I still stuck with facing the idea that 'the creator(s)' are evil?
I do not think so. Would you think so?
Basically my question better framed would be along the lines of...
"IF this is a creation we are experiencing THEN in examining the nature of the universe [specifically our 'home world'] do we recognize evil therein and from that can we ascertain that the creator(s) are therefore 'evil'?"
Does this question make sense to you? If so, how would you answer it?
