Does God Love Everyone?
Does God love everyone or just Christians? Now, this is a challenge that really has come up in recent decades because of a gospel tract. There was a gospel tract that was written: “God Loves You and Has a Wonderful Plan for Your Life”. That is a false idea. If you think about it, what is the wonderful plan that God has for the unbeliever? Hell? That does not sound so wonderful? What are they going to have a wonderful life on Earth? Not always. God does has a wonderful plan, but it is not for us. It is for God and for His glory. The focus shifted from focusing on God and who He is to focusing on man and who he wants to be. This has been a struggle ever since Genesis chapter three. So does God love everyone? Well, in one sense, yes, He has a general love for all that in Acts, it says that the rain falls on the just and the unjust alike. But we talk about his special love. Well, let us first look in Psalms 7:11. It says, “God is a righteous judge. And a God who feels indignant every day”. He is angry with the wicked every day is a New King James says it but more important is Psalm 5:5, “the boastful shall not stand before your eyes you hate or evil doers”. So many people hate that verse. Why? Because it clearly says God hates not just the sin. He hates the evildoers. So no, God does not love all people equally.
