God so loved the world
 June 2016

John 3-16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life"

Many people mistakenly quote the above scripture to show, or prove that God Loved every person born into this world. If this is true, then why would anyone ever be eternally lost, and damned to hell?

Romans 8:35-39 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

The Apostle Paul in writing the above declares that basically there is nothing that can separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Yet, the same people who teach that God Loved each and every creature person born into this world can, and will be separated from God in hell, if they do not do something in order to receive him. That something can be as simple as saying a prayer or asking for Him to “come into their heart.” However if one dies without ever believing on Jesus Christ as their “personal savior” then these folks teach that person is damned to everlasting hell! This is in direct contradiction with the God-Inspired writings of Paul the apostle. He flatly and directly refuted this false teaching that so many millions have been deluded with for over 2000 years now.

 There is nothing that can separate the object of God's Love from Him! Therefore if “God so Loved the world…” then that world will never be separated from him! If the object of God's Love were to be finally lost and separated from Him, then the Lord Jesus Christ died and was resurrected in vain and we have no hope. I am so thankful that we are not saved from eternal damnation based on anything we may or may not do in this life!
