Is God love?

If God is love (1 John 4:8) , and Love is patient, kind, and does not keep record of wrongs (1 Corinthians 13:4-8), then why would God be impatient , unkind, and keep records of our sins to the point of punishing us eternally in hell?

One thought on “Is God love?

  1. It doesn’t add up right? The stories in the Old Testament do not portray a benevolent God in any manner. He’s willing to kill thousands of innocent people for simply being numbered (2 Sam 24:1-16)or that time he set up a king to be killed by sending a lying spirit (1 Kings 22:19–23). Not mention drowning the whole world and so forth. Given the nature of this god in the OT, its not suprising that he would create a place for eternal punishment. His actions do not demonstrate love as described in the Corinthians passage. Which is one of many reaons why I have a hard time believing he exists
