Calvin’s Concerns – Is God Really Loving?

As you may expect, I am providing another 5 minute video addressing concerns that Calvin may have had as he developed his theology.

Of course, he has some responses to these concerns, but at times I fear they are lacking.

One of the key character attributes of our heavenly Father, is the love of God. As a matter of fact, the Word states that God is love.

1 John 4:8 – But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

1 John 4:16 – We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.

These two statements, from the apostle John, seem to be a clear declaration of His character. With the added witness of the Son’s self-sacrificial act of obedience to the Father’s will, the love of God is a preeminent theme of the Word.
