Question by Isis Baker: Should God love equally those who cheerfully sin and those who wish to be good?
Say God were just a parent, and He has one little two-year-old child who does wrong without remorse because that child just hadn’t learned sympathy yet.
He also has a four-year-old who has passed that stage and now is kind to other children and animals.
Should he love the one less and the other more?
Would He be more wise to just help the younger one see what he does wrong, gently?
People are like that, some spiritually childish and some spiritually mature.
Would beating and torturing the two-year-old serve His purpose?

Love isn’t something God ‘does’, but rather Love is what God Is. That changes every dynamic of how that Love is expressed. It isn’t anything like the love human beings express until that individual awakens in the state of God’s Being which is the Love. Till then love is an action rather than a state of being. That’s how it appears to me. Namaste’

God loves all equally, as you said they are just in different stages of life, any physical torture does not serve any purpose but just add trauma to the child, which in a way the child might stop doing wrong, but a better solution is to explain and teach them the right paths.

A good parent would give the little so and so a right good belting…and not torturing, just a smack…
The Bible supports corporal punishment..`.

(Proverbs 13:24) The one holding back his rod is hating his son, but the one loving him is he that does look for him with discipline.
(Proverbs 22:15) Foolishness is tied up with the heart of a boy; the rod of discipline is what will remove it far from him.

All translations say the same thing.

All those “Let’s look at God like He’s a parent” arguments ? They all fall flat on their face for one simple reason: God is supposedly OMNIPOTENT. Now, I read your argument and the last question pretty much tells me where you’re coming from so my disdain/anger/whatever isn’t directed at you.

Thumpers, how many omnipotent parents do you know ? So give up on the parenting comparisons. They just make you look even stupider and you can’t really afford that. Einstein could wear a lamp shade on his head at a party and he was ‘eccentric’ or ‘a fun guy’. YOU do it and people just think you’re stupid.

I’ll let you figure it out:

Psalms 11:5

The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
—————–

Proverbs 15: 29:

God is far away from the wicked ones, but the prayer of the righteous ones he hears.
—————–

Acts 10: 34 – 35:

….”God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him”..
——————

James 1: 12 – 15

Happy is the man that keeps on enduring trial, because on becoming approved he will receive the crown of life, which GOD promised to those who continue loving him. When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone. But each one is tried by being drawn out and enticed by his own desire. Then the desire, when it has become fertile, gives birth to sin; in turn, sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death.
—————

2 Peter 3: 8 – 10

“However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with GOD as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. GOD is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance. Yet GOD’S day will come as a thief…”
—————

Ask your daddy to sit down with you to explain this adequately. You seem awfully young. You should be in bed by now.

It’s so embarrassing for ones like you anymore; so sickening too. Ewwww, so sick of you.

God loves the sinner as well as the saint. But he has left the responsibility of our choices solely in our hands. Choices have consequences. For good or evil;.God has given us a choice to accept his son or reject him. Acceptance will bring eternal life. rejection will keep the law of sin and death firmly in your spirit.He loves all men equally and has made the choice equal opportunity . He will love you and all men whether they choose life or death, but his hands are tied if you choose the law of death. He cannot allow thw law of death to be in our future. So he will incarcerate for eternity those who choose that path.

In this context, how could any human be anything else than what God made him? That being a given, God has no right to complain about the way any human behaves. No right at all.

God loves all thats why He still provides you the trees,beautiful fresh air,a land to dwell on,fruits and other provision which you depend on to make your chips,snacks etc. that’s the love of God and it’s equal love. Like a parent who still provide both his bad and good children with a roof over their head,money,food in the fridge so they can help themselves,a bed to lie on. However a good parent hates when his child become rebellious…going out anytime at night drinking alchohol that will get you drunk and you wear revealing clothes and you more likely attractinf rapist, you get drunk drive and crashed. that parent who really give a damn about his child will hate that his child is rebellious like that and will not show him any acceptance or tolerance to it. the parent will come with punishment…like ground the child for a number of days to teach the bad child to become a better person, a better individual. but even still if that child is bad, the parent still give him food to eat and clothes to cover their bodies. that’s like God. life isn’t free. life as standards and rule. thats why wherever you go,in any country theres always a goverment of some sort with LAWS.

safe to say I HATE THE MURDERS,THE RAPIST,THE SUICIDALS,THIEVES but we may love them if they do better for themselves and those around. can you say you love MURDERS,RAPIST,SUICIDALS,THEIVES,CHEATERS???
