Yahweh's love is conditional

Sami Zaatari

 

Christians often attack Islam because according to Islamic theology, Allah does not unconditionally love everybody, rather his love is based on a conditional obedience to him, and for some Christians this is something evil and bad!

We have already shown that the Christian God doesn't love everybody:

Now here is some more proof that Yahweh CONDITIONALLY loves people:

 If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the LORD your God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your forefathers.  He will love you and bless you and increase your numbers. He will bless the fruit of your womb, the crops of your land?your grain, new wine and oil?the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks in the land that he swore to your forefathers to give you. (Deuteronomy 7:12-13)

So as you can see here, Yahweh's love is conditional upon following the laws he has given to  his followers, hence follow the commands, and Yahweh's covenant of love will be kept.

Notice God is also promising them that if they keep his commands then he will keep his love, in other words if they DONT keep the commands then obviously that covenant of love will no longer remain, and God will not love them.

Hence Yahweh's love is conditional upon obeying him.

And Allah Knows Best!
