Is God's Love the same as Freedom?
- DougLv 58 months agoFavorite Answer
A proper understanding of God's love definitely leads to freedom. I probably wouldn't say that the two are exactly the same though.
Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute so we don't have to go to hell. Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He gives eternal life freely to anyone who simply believes in Him. No one can be saved by doing good works. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9).
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).

No. Nothing can limit God's love, but we often limit our own freedom by the actions we take.

Love, that is true love, is not coercive in nature requiring a performance in order to earn such.

Love is what you are free to do or expand. "Freedom from" is a mental exercise that sets up false ideas to escape from.
