I get very annoyed with people that seem to be continually defining God on their terms. Their God tends to be very politically correct (no warring or genocide allowed), but when they are done defining God, it seems to me there is nothing left but platitudes about love.
- It seems that the statement that "God is love" does not map well into our human understanding of Love
- Scot Douglass' statement "Every truth about God is always also a lie about Him" -- is "God is love" one of those truths that is also an untruth?
- Is this a problem of language -- are we in the realm of the ineffable?
- Do some attributes of God transcend love?
- Do we need different categories of Love? The love of humans and the love of God?
- 1 Cor 13:5 "It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful" has a very human centric and pragmatic feel to it. Anyone that is in relationship feels the truth of this.
- John 3:16 agape love
