"Robert Wild claims that Jesus 'affirmed the unconditional divine loving for everyone' (Letters, 'Radical revision' of church's traditional missionary theology is needed', Dec. 2015, p. 4). I don't know where he gets his image of Jesus. It certainly does not square with the one I find in the gospels: 'But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses' (Matthew 6:15) .... Does that sound like 'unconditional love' ? The meaning is quite clear to me. God loves only those who do his will and keep his commandments. He shows no love to unrepentant sinners. 'For judgement is without mercy to him that hath shewed not mercy' (James 2:13). It is high time that clergy and Christians in general stopped rabbiting on about God's 'unconditional love'."
