Show Notes

Christopher and guest co-host Shiloh Logan talk about the idea of divine unconditional love. There is some religious controversy over what God’s “unconditional love” means. It has come to mean many things to many people, and there is no congruent doctrine from LDS Church leaders concerning the phrase. For as many statements come against unconditional love, there are more things said in favor of it from LDS General authorities and church leaders. But what are we to do about this? Is God unconditionally loving? Is there a way to contextualize and reconcile the words of the LDS church leaders who speak against “unconditional love” with those who speak about it and forward the message? What does a conditionally and unconditionally love God look like? What are the implications of the conditional/unconditional loving God upon the Sermon on the Mount? While the phrase “unconditional love” is a relatively new phrase within Christian literature, can we find evidence of God’s unconditional love in scripture? What would that look like and how would we find it?
