Today I wish to direct your attention to a post by Craig Bubeck at internetmonk.com.
It is an unfortunately common tendency among evangelicals, whenever the subject of God’s love comes up, to want to place limits or qualifications on it. For many, “love” is just an excuse for soft theology or sloppy thinking. Talk too much about love and you are likely to be labeled “postmodern” or “emergent”. Example: Can a gay person come to our church? Yes, but they have to understand that they will not be allowed to participate fully until they repent and stop living in sin. (The Mohler post from a couple of weeks back is a perfect example of this.) Bubeck challenges us with the idea that love is at the very center of the Christian message and that we dare not try to minimalize it.
