Jesus is love and love is at the center of the universe in the form of God. We all want love but cannot find it on our own terms. This creates a paradox. This is why Jesus is the stumbling stone. We all seek him but we cannot find him unless we give up everything that is not love.

We find Jesus as we express love.
To reject the smallest charachteristic or quality of Jesus is to reject love and to express un-love. This is the universal dilemma and it cannot be defeated, got around or bargained with.
Jesus = love

He comes as a complete package and this fullness of love is found in the Bible.
