If it is 100% true that God “LOVES” everyone the same, how then can we justify Romans 9:13, As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated? Or more importantly what need was there for Christ’s sacrifice at Calvary? Think about it, if God’s “unconditional, all consuming Love was is so great toward everyone, what need had He of propitiation.
In the sense that God is LOVE, and that even while we are sinners God loved us, yes the statement can be construed to be true. HOWEVER, we cannot stop there, we must consider the Whole Counsel of God, that is all of scripture and upon doing so, one quickly realizes there is more to the story.
In this brief clip from our 2017 National Conference, R.C. Sproul answers the question, “Is it biblical to say that God loves everyone?”
