God is ALL things all of the time. To lower God to our definition of love is sad.
How great is our God??
Do you really believe that God is only the love we can define? If you want to talk about God you need to talk about ALL of God. God can never be "just" love or "just" wrath, He is always ALL of His attributes (Immutable, Impartial, Infinite, Jealous, Justice, Love, Mercy, Righteous, Self-existent, Self-sufficient, Sovereign, Transcendent, Truth, Wise, Wrath, Eternal, Faithfulness, Foreknows, Good, Holy, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient) ALL of the time.
It doesn't seem "right" or "fair" to us that God can be Love and wrath at the same time. If it makes you feel better to think that God is not a God of Justice then you DO NOT want to know ALL of God.
2 Timothy 4:3-"For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear."
If you are making God less than He is, so that He fits into your idea of what God should be, then you are the one who is making God into something He is not.
Last Fall hurrah
