    "We are created in the image of our heavenly parents; we are God's spirit children. Therefore, we have a vast capacity for love—it is part of our spiritual heritage. What and how we love not only defines us as individuals; it also defines us as a church. Love is the defining characteristic of a disciple of Christ."

    The only one left for that would be the Holy Spirit, but the Holy Spirit is referred to as He in the Holy Bible. So apparently a mother is not needed in this Heavenly relationship. Wonders galore with God! 😏

    HalleluYah !!! Praise the Lord! Holy! Holy! Holy!

    Seems God thinks families are for other people. He didn't bother himself. Poor little bugger had to borrow a mother ....

    I do not know how to classify their relationship, but I would bet there is more love between the three persons of the Godhead than any other relationship in the world.

    does this mean love can be quantified? does this also mean that christians feel more love than atheists and other religions?
