because this suggests that there will be either life with God or life separated from God. It is also important to read John 3:17 & John 3:18, too. Actually read the whole book of John. Let’s not “hang our hat” on 1 verse “if” we believe in judgment, this would suggest what? If we believe in life everlasting, how then shall we live, today?
Jesus gave us a “new” commandment: To love one another. Of course, that is not “new” to a Jewish person. That is in the Torah, Leviticus chapter 19 verse 18. The “new” part was to love one another the “way” Jesus had loved them. When Jesus said he was the way, the truth, and the life, “love” is the “way”, “love” is the truth and “love” is life. The plan is “love”. Those things will not fully bring in the Kingdom of God on earth. The real plan is self giving, humility, and obedience.
