Does God Loves Us No Matter What We Do?
The answer lies as to whether the whole Bible is relevant to the individual, or only parts that point to Gods love.
John 3:16 is used by many to justify that God is a loving God and in isolation would appear to be true. If you read on in the same chapter to verse 36 as follows." Whoever believes in the son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the son will not see life, for Gods Wrath remains on him".
Love should equal obedience.
God according to the Bible both loves and hates. Psalm 5: 4-6. 4; you are not a God who takes pleasure in evil. with you the wicked cannot dwell.
verse 5 the arrogant cannot stand in your presence; you hate all who do wrong.
verse 6: you destroy those who tell lies; bloodthirsty and deceitful men the Lord abhors.
" Whoever has my commands ands obeys them, then he is the one who loves me, he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and i too will love him and show myself to him". John 14: 21. Obedience.
" Put to death therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature, sexual immorality, impurity, lust evil desires and greed which is idolatory because of these the wrath of God is coming" Col 3:5 " now the works of the flesh are manifest which are these adultery, fornication, uncleaness lasciviousness and debauchery, idolatory and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage selfish ambition, dissenions, factions and envy, drunkenness orgies and the like, I warn you as i did before, that those who live like this, will not inherit the kingdom of God' Galatians 5:19-21
Love equals obedience, Grace is not a licence to do what we feel like.
