Proposition or Love?

I just started reading Leonard Sweet's newest...I love this quote.

Faith is more than beliefs to be learned; it is bonds to be lived. Faith is more than holding the ‘right’ beliefs; it is holding the ‘right’ (that is, the ‘least of these’) hands. We are judged by the world not on the basis of how ‘right’ we’ve gotten what we believe but on how well we’re living it—on how we love God and people…The test, according to Jesus, is that his disciples are known not by how well they defend orthodox propositions, but by how well they ‘love one another.’

--Leonard Sweet, Out of the Question…Into the Mystery (WaterBrook, 2004), p.21
