84: Does God Love Everyone Unconditionally?
In this episode, Kenny responds to a question from a regular listener: “Does God love everyone unconditionally?”
First, Kenny notes that God does indeed love every person, but it is actually more than that. Love isn’t just something God does or something God feels, God is love! (1 John 4:8)
God passionately loves us, because He is love.
However, God’s love for everyone is not the same, He loves certain peoples differently and uniquely. It is also important to note that sometimes the love of God is misunderstood and wrongly equated with the approval of God. Just because God has a passionate love for you, does NOT mean that He approves of everything you do. Kenny explains why it is essential to understand this truth.
