Does God Love You? Have a Plan for You?

By: Geoffrey Holsclaw

What does it mean that “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life?”
Is this popular evangelistic messages easily distorted amid a culture of affluence and ease? Are we prepared for bad things to happen?

Fitch and Holsclaw discuss what it means that God loves us and how this intersects with evil in the world. They talk about how God’s love is not for PROTECTION, but solicits our PARTICIPATION. And in a violent and selfish world, participating in the love of God will be costly and painful.
