Not That We Loved God

I read this in St. John's first letter. You might know someone that wants to be holy, but the vast majority of the shame they feel is when they fail themselves. The fact of God's loving primacy tells them that the gift of their faith is real. The whole matter then becomes a conversation about what they are afraid of, and that's what needs to happen.

The appeal of Calvinism for some people is a cover for mediocrity and self-hatred.

If God loves us, we haven't the right to deny it.
