It is, for example, in accordance with this view that one regards love and truth as mutually conflicting and gives priority to love as the personal principle over truth as the impersonal principle, thereby coming into direct contradiction with St Paul’s saying that love ‘rejoiceth in the truth’ (I Cor. 13.6). For indeed love knows nothing of the very conflict in terms of which one seeks to define it. On the contrary, it is of the essence of love that it should lie beyond all disunion. A love which violates or even merely neutralizes truth is called by Luther, with his clear biblical vision, an ‘accursed love’, even though it may present itself in the most pious dress. A love which embraces only the sphere of personal human relations and which capitulates before the objective and real can never be the love of the New Testament.
