At work last night during break someone had an interesting question. We were talking about Mormons and Jehovas Witnesses who would go door to door and how we reacted to them. On girl said she would talk to them and ask questions they couldn't answer, now I'm curious.
The Bible says God is love.
Love is not jealous or boastful.
If God is jealous and boastful, then how does God=Love?
I haven't tried too look up any answers in the Bible because I don't know where to look. I was raised Baptist but I haven't been to Church regularly in years. Recently I've started reading the Bible again but I haven't gotten far.

Shaneagle777- Simply wording something in a different ways doesn't make it different. Being jealous is being jealous and the God of the Bible sure as hell does covet attention and get pissed when humans turn from him as the Bible clearly shows. Just because God is supposedly the supreme being, doesn't make his negative emotions 'good', they are exactly the same as human emotions- so if human emotions and feelings are wrong, then so are his. Man has free will as you people love to say and so he gives you free will to decide whether you want to belong to him or not and if you chose not to, then he is wanting something that doesn't belong to him. I know you see it differently because you feel all of his creations belong to him, so he's not really coveting anything, but I don't see it that way.
