Today a friend and I discussed this topic in length. What is unconditional love when it comes to spiritual beliefs-Biblical principles, the Word of God? Do we not have anything to do with a person who does not believe totally in the Bible? Do we divorce ourselves from the person who has a sexual orientation that we believe the Bible teaches against?
When it comes to a family member do we dismiss them from our lives or do we extend unconditional love to them? If we extend unconditional love then how are we to behave? If we feel strongly about a conviction and they are not living up to the standard we believe the Bible teaches – what should our reaction be.
Does God loves unconditionally? We love Him, because He first loved us. Do we put our heads in the sand due to doctrinal differences? Do we believe ourselves to be better because we think we have a handle on “exactly what is the right thing?”
As family and friends – what do we do? Do we discriminate in our love? Do we say….I love you if…..? I would like to hear from you.
