“God Is Love.” For some reason, my mind transposed the words into “Love is God.” ~ Anonymous. A Day at a Time: Daily Reflections for Recovering People (Hazelden Meditations) (Kindle Location 3342). Hazelden Publishing.
Equivalent statements work backwards and forward.
Far be it from me to define mathematics
since I’m illiterate in the language.
But if we’re talking grammar,
be, am, is, are, was, were…
with a predicate nominative,
that I can grasp. What???
you may ask. Well,
a predicate nominative (or predicate noun)
is the noun or pronoun after a linking verb.
It renames the subject of the sentence.
The sentence should still make sense
if you switch the predicate nominative and the subject.
Therefore if the Bible is right in saying “God is Love.”
the reverse is also true, “Love is God.”
And it IS true. Love is God.
