Jesus said to love God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
But Progressive Christians tend to depersonalize God.
They think in terms of energies and forces, the universe and everything.
It is difficult to love an abstract concept.
If, however, we say that God is Love, we can solve the problem by falling in love with Love.
Love is an abstract concept, but it is also tangible.
We can relate to love as something we can experience.
So, rather than wasting our time trying to love something intangible, we can relate to God as Love and fall in love with Love.
