On love.

“Reason teaches that whatever performances or seeming virtues there are without love, are unsound and hypocritical. If there be no love in what men do, then there is no true respect or men in their conduct; and if so, then certainly there is no sincerity… Thus, if a man’s faith be of such a sort that there is no true respect to God in it, reason teaches that it must be in vain; for if there be no love to God in it, there can be not rue respect to Him.” (Charity and Its Fruits, Jonathan Edwards, p.9-10)

“A truly Christian faith is that which produces good works; but all the good works which it produces are by love.” (13)
