Only Unconditional Love?

The Banner of Truth web site posts some fine articles, with lots of biblical thinking and little fluff. I check there regularly for this, and encourage you to do so too.

There is one posted there on God’s Unconditional Love — raising an appropriate objection to over-emphasizing this to the neglect of other biblical truths about God. It should get us all thinking…

In a popular children’s video series, each show ends with one of the main characters telling his viewers, “God made you special, and He loves you very much.” That statement reflects a now common assumption that God is the embodiment of love, bearing no hint of hatred, condemnation or disapproval.

You do well to question that assumption. Because no matter how warm and fuzzy it may make people feel, it doesn’t reflect the reality of what God has revealed about Himself.

The article says more, with a helpful illustration from a parent’s love for a child. Take a look (the link is above, or the general link is to the left). djb
