    Why worry if God loves you if you love God. Yes, worry if you hate righteousness, hate God's severity for you will be cut off like a branch that yields no fruit and cast into the fire. All of God's ways are righteous. He created you're Soul. It is His. He can and will destroy the phoney, pretenders who presumptuously claim Salvation. Don't you dare. It is God's to give only if you are worthy

    Hi RALPH268; This is a difficult thing for a lot of good people to understand. How can God love wicked people; murderers, pedophiles, etc.? He doesn't! But the Scriptures say, that God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his wicked ways, and from the violence in their hands, and do right and live. God made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
