This Question was asked to verify the Calvinist view of the heart of God: "Does the Calvinist essentially believe that God created the majority of mankind intentioned for eternal suffering in Hell?" (No objections to this view was launched)
The first and most popular answer opens with: “While it is true that 1 John focuses on the fact that God is love, it doesn't say that "Love is God."”
Wouldn’t Eternal Love be God?
It strikes me as odd that no one has quoted: Galatians 5:6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love Ephesians 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, Ephesians 6:23 Peace [be] to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 1:3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; 2 Timothy 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. Romans 4:16 Therefore [it is] of faith, that [it might be] by grace… Romans 5:2 …we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God Romans 12:6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us…according to the proportion of faith Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God 1 Timothy 1:14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus Luke 11:42 But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone John 5:42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you Romans 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us 2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life1 John 4:11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another
It seems to me when an algebraic equation yields a wrong answer, one should rethink the formula. Have Calvinists done so?
