    "See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!"
    (1 John 3:1)

    If there is one thing at the very pinnacle of a merciful God, it is the Father's love for us, I could rejoice in tears for it all, Hallelujah!!

    "He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,"
    (John 1:11,12)

    It didn't faze Him, He kept right on coming down the corridors of all our faults and gave everything, thank God!

    True, there are particulars within that, but I would be hard-pressed to discover that might reach into the subject of the love of God.

    Lest someone objects, as I am also subject to them, let all who will, come to the table of His love, his mercy and favor in Christ! Hallelujah!

    Actually I love the topic, in fact, God called me about 10 or so years ago to study the topic full time...still going strong...but I do try to obey forum rules so I will pray and see where God leads as per the discussion. Thanks for the Love you have shown me in this thread and thanks for the thread.

    First John's Epistle adds a good deal of Scripture material to such a study!

    I suppose a variety of possible factors can be perceived variously. Your contributions are very friendly, anyway.
