You made the classic mistake people make when they question Jesus' love: they make him a one-dimensional person. So when someone says that God is love, then asks, "then why would God ...," they are assuming that God should respond only in love -- to everything. In the case of sentencing people to hell, Jesus would be acting in the role of judge. Human ...

Since Paul didn't expand on this, the best we can do is to review what noted theologians have said about this. To get some good answers, you really need to look no further than Bible commentaries.

He gives us an idea of how strong his love us for us in John 15, as well as guidance on how to love one another. He loves us as the Father loves him. If we obey, we remain in his love. He states we're his friends and that everything he's learned from his ...

I would only speculate from sctipture a few simple answers. It is apparent that in Christianity it is important that we identify God as our "Father" through Christ, in fact it is God's will that we know him as our Father through Christ so it is apparent that God wanted children. God is love and he loves his servants the angels but what greater vessel for him ...
