This is a question 'into the airwaves' and it will be interesting to see whether anyone answers the question.
I grew up believing that God hated my guts and wanted me to burn in hell. It wasn't until I finally understood that God really loved me that I was able to begin to have an honest relationship with God and to grow in my discipleship.
My question is why, when I testify to God's love, that there is always someone who feels compelled to say 'Yes, but...' and try to minimise God's love in someway. Sort of 'Yes, God loves you, but don't be fooled into thinking that God loves you too much.'
What is the idea behind this?
Are there are too many people in the world who think that God loves them?
Or that if people are threatened with God's anger that the world will be a more ethical place and that people will want to be Christians?
