The New Testament clearly says that God is Love (1 John 4:8) and that Love keeps no record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:5). The Old Testament prophet, Jeremiah, even prophesied of the New Covenant, speaking as the voice of God, saying, “I will count their sins and lawless deeds against them no longer…”
Why do we still point the finger at so-called “sinners” telling them they need to change? This is not the heart of God. Is the Love of God unconditional or are there still conditions attached – ie. Stop doing this or you must do that, etc.?
