Does God Love All People the Same Way?

God loves in many different ways. There's a sense in which there's an intertrinitarian level where God loves the Son and the Son loves the Father. There is a more electing love - God loves His people. There is a covenantal love where God loves his people when they obey Him, in a way that He doesn't love them when they disobey Him.

So these different kinds of love - so when you say God loves all people, yes, in one sense. But God does not love all people, all the time, in the same sense. There are distinctions, and when you blur those distinctions, you flatten how the Bible talks, you take verses out of context, you take one truth and ignore the others, and that's where some significant problems will come.
