Cluny:

You wrote: God's love is infinite.

How do you have more than infinity?


It depends what mathematical model you use. In reals, infinity is a limit and not an actual number, so infinity+1=infinity, and you can't really deal with it.

In hyper-reals, infinity is an actual quantity you can add to.

Unless you get into exotic mathematics, the question is irrelevant, and unless you know the mathematical intent of theologians who say "God's love is infinite", the question is meaningless.

One thing common to all such theories is "God's love is more than sufficient for any reasonably named purpose", which is close enough without being unnecessarily precise (and hence debatable).

Trav, I just wanted Cliff's take on it, not some random proof texting. But thanks just the same.
---learner2 on 11/1/14

Your very welcome, just the same.
Cliff didn't answer. Since there are others reading, the random opportunity was there for specific scriptures.

Gal_6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

OBEY HIS COMMANDS. FULFILL THE FIRST AND GREATEST COMMAND. God loved Noah. God loved Daniel. His elect, he loves. Was not Esau Jacobs brother? declares the Lord. Yet I have loved Jacob, but Esau I have hated, and I have turned his hill country into a wasteland and left his inheritance to the desert jackals. (Malachi 1:2-3)

There is no fear in Love, but perfect Love cast out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in Love. "We love Him because He first loved us" (1 John 4:18,19).


"If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, "he is a liar" for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?" (1 John 20).
---Luke on 11/3/14




John 14:15_24 "If ye love me, keep my commandments. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me."
---Nana on 11/2/14


//".His love cannot be earned. It is freely given to those whom He has given to love Him. Father showed how much he loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him. And Father showed that great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. That is real love, not that we loved The Father, but that He loved us enough to send His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. There is no greater love than to lay down ones life for ones friends, and He no longer calls the believers slaves, because a master doesn't confide in his slaves. He now refers to us as friends.//

Josef, I wanted to point out the message was speaking of believers only, "us".

Cliff, does God's love vary from context to context?
---learner2 on 10/25/14

Here is some love/hate scripture, context to context.

Rom 9:11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth,)
Rom_9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

King David:
Psa_139:21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
Psa_139:22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

//which some regard as His love//Adetunji

Agreed, I will take it a step further. Sometimes what we consider to be a blessing can actually be a curse if we are not ready or in a different season. Matthew 7 7-12. Since we do not seek/want undesirable things, we look for good things at least in our mindset. However, the same object/person/goal can be a "fish" or a "snake" depending on motivation and personality.

We can please GOD. But we cannot make Him love us more.

We can also sadden GOD by our actions. As a child who leaves the will of his parents saddens them.

When God sent His Son to die for us,that is the total of love that anyone possesses.
---shira4368 on 10/27/14


My simple answer to this is "NO".

Very well put, Geraldine!

Glory to Jesus Christ!

If you improve on your obedience of God, His grace, blessing, prosperity may increase also to you (which some regard as His love) but really I believe His love is infinite & constant.
I believe His punishment on earth is also part of His love.

Learner2: God's love is immeasurable (incalculable, limitless).
---Leon on 10/25/14


Cluny I agree with you,when we love God more we realize a closer walk with Him. We can know more of what God's love means and feel a greater closeness to Him when we always practice loving Him more than ourselves and more than anything else. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 10/25/14


I cannot cause God to love me more or less by anything I do, because he loves all of us for who we are not what we do -- same way we love our own children.
---Geraldine on 10/24/14


God already loves you infinitely.

How can you add to infinite?

Or have you fallen for the Gospel of Holy Prosperity, and expect God to lavish you with goodies as proof of His love?

As you learn to love God more for His own sake, you will be able to experience His love more strongly.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

BTW, learner, God Himself in totally free, and is bound by nothing.

Therefore you can't make Him do anything.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
