God's love & fury. John 3:16-21

by Hope NY Church

When Jesus says "for God so lived the world.."...then he said right after those who don't believe are already condemned! Wow! New Yorkers don't like that! Strong language and negative on the 2nd sentence. It's like putting the most well known verse and loving verse in the bible together with the most horrific verse together! Why? What does he mean?

Listen , only when you know the God you serve will only then you be able to live the life that he wants you.

16 “For God so loved the world,[a] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
