God’s Love- Is it Really Unconditional? – Part 2

If you haven’t read the first part of this post then I recommend you to first read it. Otherwise you will not get the whole picture of what I am talking here. So read it first here

So in my last post I tried to raise my concern over the repeated use of the word “Unconditional Love” by people to make people feel better and make them realize that God loves them irrespective of whatever they do. I received some comments both positive and negative about it. Even I had some discussion with few people about it. You can read some comments by an Anonymous person who has sharp disagreement with what I have written. I respect his zeal and appreciate the effort he has put in writing all those comments. So I decided to write a Part 2 giving clarification on certain aspects so that no one will misunderstand me.

God’s Love- Is it Really Unconditional?

In the beginning let me admit one thing. If you don’t read this carefully, there is a chance that you will misunderstand.

Have you ever heard the word “Unconditional Love” being used again and again from pulpits by preachers to make people understand the love of God? They base this concept on the basis of few verses which at times they interpret in a way to fit their own idea. For example Ephesians 3:19
“and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. “

Do a search about this word "Unconditional" in your Bible. Can you find this word anywhere in reference to God’s Love?

So what does this mean? No matter what I do, God still loves me. Yes, when I was a sinner, God first loved me. When we were yet sinners, God showed his love towards us by sending his Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.

Now there is some danger of over emphasis of this word unconditional. I want to bring it out.

False Teaching - Audio Message Update

I have added 10 audio messages to gospel-link.com site. The Link is http://www.gospel-link.com/MP3_Messages.aspx. They are in MP3 format. 4 Messages are of Dr.K.Muralidhar preached at Minnesota. Other 6 messages are of Dr.R.Stanley. 4 preached at Minnesota and 2 of them preached at Chicago. I would recommend all of you to listen to them as they have some solid and sound teachings.

We are living in times when so many wrong and false teachings & teachers are flourishing like anything. As I read the Epistles of Paul, Peter, John etc, I am sure this was a problem even during their time.

Some messages of Dr.Stanley is against some of the false teachings. He speaks on subjects like Deception, Different Spirit, Different Gospel etc. I will be adding the video of these messages very soon. I will update once its done.
