“God is love… There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…”
– 1 John 4
I recently sat down with Wm Paul Young and though we were two time zones and 2000 miles apart we were together in heart and mind. We talked about many things but the main point I was going after in this interview was simply this: “God is Love”
Since this is true than it must follow that what we call God’s “wrath” must be an expression of God’s love!

Love is at the heart of the character and essence of God. He could NEVER act in a way contrary to love. Love is other centered self sacrificing love. His love is that of a perfect parent. For just as Jesus taught us, he is our Father, our Abba, our Papa.
Papa is especially fond of you!
I would also like to share with you a song I wrote inspired by the Shack called “Your Love Drives My Fear Away“:
ps. Wm Paul Young often mentions his friend Brad Jersak who has written a book called Her Gates Will Never Be Shut about the real hope we can have regarding God’s wrath, judgement, and eternal matters. Brad discovered that the Greek words for God’s judgement are always restorative in nature. What does this mean as it relates to hell?
I will be interviewing Brad Jersak about this very soon so stay tuned and connect with me at my Sozo Talk Radio FB page.
