God’s Love in Unwavering

But God demonstrated His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).

Out of one side of its mouth religion will tell us of the love of God, and then out of the other that He will send the overwhelming majority of His creation to suffer the pains of eternal conscious torment. Such a view abandons any concept of unconditional love.

Since God is not a man, His love is not human, but divine. One of the greatest human loves is that of family (of a man for a woman, of a mother and father for their children); and yet God’s love is far superior.

We are all the off spring of God, He is our Father (Acts 17:29). God gave us earthly families that we may know, in some small measure, the nature of His Fatherly love for us. Parental love can be unconditional, and yet it pales in comparison to that of our heavenly Father’s. His love is unwaveringly fixed upon us as the object of His love; and divine “love never fails” (I Corinthians 13:8).
