Means it’s conditional.
If this, then that. Right?
John 14:15, 21
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
If you love God, then he will love you back.
How do you love God? He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me
This is really the best IF example given from the bible.
Using the Bible Mantis app (no affiliate links here), I did a search for “if”. Results? 1000 results in 40 books. It seems 1000 is a max for the app.
Another good one to show God is conditional.
Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
I hope this makes things clear about the “if” definition.
