“Unconditional love is a hallmark of Christianity. The rejected child sees hypocrisy in the withdrawal of that love in the name of sin vs. virtue.”
Unconditional love is NOT unconditional acceptance. There is a huge difference - enough that it takes the blood of Jesus to bridge that gap. There is nothing loving about enabling sin or accepting it. I would not let a self-professed and proud adulterer join us for dinner, nor would I accept it by my kids.
We all sin, but we do not all rejoice in being sinners.
“There is no chance of reconciliation without one side caving to other. Compromise is, by definition, impossible.”
God’s nature defines morality. He isn’t going to change. We must be changed to become like Him, rather than pretending He will change to join us.
