Matt, Jon, and Paul continue their discussion of how love is definitive in an apocalyptic approach to theology. Love describes God as a communion of persons, which means that community and relationships are definitive of humans, and the only way to point to this truth is through witness and invitation and is not through reduction to propositions, doctrine, or belief.

Paul Axton Preaches - "God's anger, is at one with his love; so, too, God's mercy and his justice are one and the same. Mercy and punishment are not opposed; for punishment - the consuming fire - is a means to an end, that we might be the creatures he intended us to be. God's punishment, his justice, can be his most merciful act."
