LOVE is done with the heart and mind, not with a book.
The Romans also had scriptures (they KNEW God), but they carried out their devotion BUREAUCRATICALLY (with a book), so God rejected their offerings, deeds, and even their prayers/thanks (Romans 1:21)....
for although they knew God they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
Rom 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles.
Rom 1:24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
Rom 1:25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen.
