God is unconditional Love - always!

NASA, nebula

Few minutes ago, I was searching for some inspirational questions from Hubers and found that one: Will the God punish me if I live with my boyfriend before the marriage? It reminded me immediately on my young age...so, dear shopper 2, please read my article.

I was raised up us Roman Catholic, full of fears of God, waiting for punishment because of my so called sins. When I started dating and having sexual relationships, I was sure that I am on the good way to hell, and I was destroying myself because of strong, deep guilt. Actually at that time I WAS LIVING IN HELL already, my fears and guilt created it.

But, the fact was/is: majority of people were (and still are) "sinners", sexual energy is the strongest force among people, that is our genetic heritage, our passion, our inspiration, one of our ways to express love,does that mean that God will punish you for something what move us on? Impossible.

I spend many years of my life while searching for truth, about God, about sins, about myself, about humans behaviour. I have learned psychology, biology, spirituality, prayed, meditated,contemplated, I dared to asked questions directly to the God, I knew God can hear me. And is willing to answer. God is always answering on our questions, anyway.

God is unconditional Love

God is Ocean of Love, Ocean of Compassion for everybody. God is so full of pure Love, that something as punishment just cannot exist in God`s mind. We are God`s loving children, and God knows that children needs to learn from their life-experience what life and truth really are. God is aware, that we have to do mistakes sometimes, in order to learn lessons in school of life, God loves us with endlessness Love...and NEVER, NEVER punish!!! God always support us, and give us opportunity for spiritual evolution. We are God`s loving dreams, and consisted of the same substance as our Creator - we are also pure love, and we should learn how to overcome our fears.

My religion taught me many lies about God, as well as some truths. God did not create religion - people do that, because they want to describe the Creator of Universe on the way which is understandable for them. Religions and their dogmas are created by human mind only, not by Divine being.

I know now that God gives us freedom of choice and we can always choose. It is easier to choose, if you are free of fears, if you are brave and have open hearth. When you are full of love, you are connected with God, so you know then, what is the right choice for you.

There is no guilt, no mistake in God`s eyes. Eternal Love just cannot punish us for listening our hearths and using common sense in making important life - decisions. Everyone of us has right to love and express this love, live that love.

It is very wise to try to live with your boyfriend before the marriage...and see if you can be together, or just stay friends. Friendship is love as well. You will see your possible future, only if you give it a try. But...do not do it if you are afraid of anything, do not rush if you are not sure that you really want it, from all your heart and soul. If you are ready, expect reward from God for your brave and wise decision. If you do not feel ready, God will be happy as well.

You are woman, decision is YOURS. God is on your side, and loves you tenderly till the end of time, never forget that.

Be blessed.

In this endless, eternal universe, everything is perfect, everything is in order, everything is creativity and miracle. No mistake can exist, no sins, no punishment. We can create heaven in our lives, if we decide to live in love for all, if we are free of fears. We have right to choose, we have right to change our minds. We have right to be free, because God is Freedom. Always. As well as forgiveness. We are all surrounded with God`s Love and Wisdom... all the time.

We just need to open our mind to this eternal Truth...and dare to live it.

What about, "The wages of sin is death."? Yes God loves you and will not punish us as we understand the word but,, God cannot defy his own rules. He says, "you sin, you die." This means spiritually of course. You are free to make your own decisions and you can choose to sin. It is your choice the same as you can choose to break the laws of the land knowing that, if you get caught, you will be punished.

By my knowledge, unconditional love would not be unconditional love, if would say:" you sin, you die".( this is pressure, and conditioning no love). God cannot teach us with fear, this would not be teaching. OK, if we do hurt any other living creature, something else hurts us, just like lesson to learn. It is not punishment, it is just lesson. If we treat others with love and respect, we would receive love and respect.

I understand deeply your comment, because I was afraid of God`s revenge very long. One day suddenly I understood that I am the one who creates that suffering to myself, in the name of God. And stopped with that, little by little.

Since I believe God is my best friend, I became better person, because I believe in God`s help, love and compassion and no punishment. And I give to the others help, love and compassion.

I also learned, by analysing other people?s reactions, that God in our lives has exactly that type of rules WE IMAGINE. If we are afraid of God, we create punishment and revenge because we think we deserve that. If we are brave and love God (and the other living beings), God always gives us support, more courage and more love.

God is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE; when we love without being afraid, we start to live in personal paradise (where there is no hurting the others, only understanding and compassion).

Thank you very much for your comment, be blessed...

I believe that God loves unconditionally, but I don't believe it's a pampering love, but instead a perfecting love. God wants to make us perfect like Christ, but if we make bad decisions, there will still be consequences to pay, and God will not withhold those consequences because He does love us. Kind of like when parents love their children unconditionally, but will not stand in the way of difficult and trying times because their children need to learn, and grow, and be able to make good choices.

I do agree that we make our choices, that we can be free, and that God's love is around us at all times.

Also, there are those out there who will continue to cause hurt even if treated with love and respect, however, God is not willing that any should perish.

Be blessed!


Tatjana-Mihaela profile image

Tatjana-Mihaela 7 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA Author

Yes, God? love is not always pampering, is perfecting as well. And yes, we need to live with consequences of our decisions, but improvement is always possible. We learn through our decisions, "good" or "wrong" ones.

When someone is too rotten and too evil, such person really destroy himself at the end... but just the physical body. Soul is immortal, and always connected with Divine...Soul is deeply connected with God, in the essence of soul is pure love of Creator. Soul /conscioussness can always develop, in this life, or after it.

Blessings to you as well.

Tatjana, you don't believe that a person could choose to be disconnected to God?


Tatjana-Mihaela profile image

Tatjana-Mihaela 7 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA Author

Yes I do believe, that person can choose to be disconnected to God...in fact, a lot of people DO LIVE on that way. The proofs are so many wars, hate and violence, intolerance to the others.. even religious intolerance to the beliefs of others. People live on that way because they are disconnected to love, disconnected to their souls, their hearts are closed.

But whenever any of them start to re-connect with love and Divine, conscioussness gradually changes. I have seen so many examples.

Some people cannot attain this change till the end of this life...but process of learning and changing never stops, in this case, re-connection with love gradualy occurs in "life-after-life". Since I was born, I brought in this life knowledge of soul immortality, and thanks to God, this knowledge helped me to survive my own life-path. 

The magnificent power of God is love which always help to any soul to progress and change in this life, or after it. Jesus said "Kingdom of God is within you" (in human heart and soul), God would never destroy his own Kingdom...Physical bodies die, our souls never.

Sometimes is neural system of person completely destroyed because of many traumas, so that person sees and feels only negativity, fears and hate. It is illness, and humanity as a whole needs to find the ways how to heal such people. This is our duty...our lesson to learn, in order to create decent lives for all on this gorgeous planet.

We're different, but alike.  I think by that I mean, we believe in very similar things, but in different ways, if that makes sense.

I know a lot of people don't believe that healing goes on in the way that you describe.  I believe God can heal and change hearts, but I also believe the same can be done through us.  Definitely something I think about occasionally.

I found this quite insightful. Being an atheist I am often turned off by the dogma and scripture that can only stunt true spiritual growth. This was a refreshing and welcome rehashing of the God concept. Not the first time I've encountered such an outlook but a good read nonetheless.

Though I'm curious, could not "God" be replaced with "Nature" or "Universe" or do you consider God to be a conscious, omnipotent creator being?


Tatjana-Mihaela profile image

Tatjana-Mihaela 7 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA Author

Dear EdG:

I do agree with you, I am using various expressions for the same thing: Nature, universal energy, conscious energy of Universe, universal love, God, Goddes, ... whatever. In this Hub I used expression "God", because I answered on specific request.

Conscious, omnipotent energy of the universe is just everything and everyone, whatever name we use for it... We can talk about the same thing on many ways: on scientific one, on religious one, on non-religious one...and yes, forces of the nature (universe) are these ones who can help us the most to achieve higher level of spirituality...because they created us and we are conscious creators as a part of them.

Many thanks for the visit!!!

God is love and if every one on this earth realizes god unconditional love, there wouldn't have any wars and hatred. Worst, people kill each other in the name of god and that's pathetic.

This is an interesting thought provoking hub!

You are right there are many misconceptions taught in religion. This is why it is so important to know what the Word says for yourself!

I Corinthians 13 describes GOD'S LOVE very well. It says Love suffers long and is kind,does not envy, does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in inquity, but rejoices in TRUTH, bears all things, believes all thigs, hopes all thingss, endures all things.

Beautiful pictures!

I love these words of St.Paul, they are so inspiring and hearth-opening...

Love is in the roots of every religion but above all of them because love creates all this amazing Universe, all its visible and so many invisible parts. Such beauty and diversity of life-forms can be created only by unconditional love.

Hi Tatjana, I joined your club. I love your hub. So you are human too? Nice to meet you. Thank God for his Love.

I was raised a Catholic girl too. I thought I might make it to purgatory and all the saints would pray for me. Anyway I can relate with your hub. Nice Job. For me the closer I walk with Christ the more I want to do for him. He gives us commands for our benefit, not his. We are all born sinners and Jesus went to the cross to take away our sin. No one would make it to heaven if it was based on our 'works' no one. We all fall short of the Glory. Christ can turn all things for good for those that love him. That is unconditional love. Your pictures are a very nice touch. I will return.

He an make good out of our messes. Thank You Jesus.

Thanks for sharing this, Tatjana. I was raised in a highly religious world and participated for many years in the ministry serving as Bible teacher, pastor, evangelist, missionary and sought-after speaker. One day I realized the religious world is just business, and my heart completely broke. I'm on a new path now, improved, deeply loved and growing in wisdom. God/Universe/Source/Energy is pure love always, at all times, and it is a very good love, drawing us deeper into enlightenment revealing our true nature of love through us, in us as this same love radiates out of us. Again, thank you for sharing. I appreciate the wisdom.

Thank you Tatjana,

I'm grateful for your writing such a beautiful article. I really needed to read it, it has comforted me when I needed it the most. I feel it is so beautiful to share one's truth and wisdom, with others, and your words resonate with me!! Just earlier today I was in a rather heated discussion with a family member over dogma and rituals, and how so many raised in religious backgrounds are afraid to open up to a higher truth that is calling for their attention. This left me feeling drained because I was trying to convince the other person that we aren't sinners who can do nothing but sin. This intuition that so many of us have lost connection with is sorely needed in our lives now. So, yes, I needed to read this. It confirms what I feel within, the light and peace that permeates my entire being! The key of knowledge is within and only we can unlock it and unleash our divine potential!

Thank you, and Blessings to you!! Keep up the great articles ;-)

Is there anything called unconditional love ? I doubt that. And god loves that is another mystery. To love unconditionally, he was absent while tsunami striking some villages and gave us excuse of free will so i can't buy this unconditional love theory. I mean we can't speak on behalf of god.

@Lady, Who's blaming him ? But asking him question hurts his image ? he can't even stop disasters,irrespective of who is the cause for it ? I mean he loves unconditionally to this universe,right?


Tatjana-Mihaela profile image

Tatjana-Mihaela 6 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA Author

Why would anybody stop disasters if he/she did not cause them? People caused them, so people should stop be stupid and start to behave responsibly, and then disasters will stop.

Up till the moment people start to understand that they should act wisely and stop their self-destruction, God will very politely fulfill their desire to be self-destructive. Because God loves unconditionally: if you want negativity, you will get negativity, if you want positivity, you will get it. But you cannot get what you do not give.

Unconditional love means that you get what you want, good or bad, according to your wishes, emotions, thoughts and beliefs.

So it is very childish to expect that God will solve problems that God did not cause, but people. One of the reasons why we are all here is to learn that lesson - not to blame others then solve the problems we caused.

When we stop polluting our environment, when we stop the wars etc. climate will improve again. So there will be no such horrible natural disasters any more.

Earthbeat 6 years ago

God is just so awesome - so BIG!!! - that in a sense we cannot even begin to describe God. Yet, the Christian scriptures and other scriptures of the world put forward the idea God's nature is love and compassion. The New Testament offers the most complete picture of God as love, and even says, "God is love." From a human perspective we see this love in Jesus. But for us to conceptualize the infinity that is unconditional love would be like being able to describe the Divine.

I like what you have written, and the powerful visual images.

I love your comments and beautiful photos. For those who respond that God says: "The wages of sin is death," I believe that life is eternal for all, but our attachments to fear, materialism, egotism (the sins of this physical life) will die. Our true nature is of God, Love, and Light - and that cannot die!

If one would only open the mind and heart to the devine, they would have no question of gods love and power for us. He uses all thing with in the earth and our being to show his love and and disapproval. Moments taken in silence are the closest we can get to this voice. Many question the truth to the unseeaable, yet god himself is invisable, he is everywhere aeound us if you look and feel, even with us. It's our choice to connect with his power and wisdom, beauty. Those who know god jnot just believe, here him.

Great Hub! Your are truly enlightened. God is Love, Joy and Truth. Each of this will lead to the other two. God's Truth has set you free. Along with his truth comes love and joy. That trinity is the God's signature

Many will find your message about God too Good, too Grand, and too Magnificent. But really God far better than anyone has ever imagined.

Another point, I believe it is the bad collective consciousness of man that causes natural calamities. God is not the cause of such disasters.

you are talking about what you think god is

you say the punishment is guilt n fear itself,but what the person who is doing bad things,which i can say that is not good or even you can and he dont have a bit of guilty feeling in him,then how you think he is getting punished? I just want is that person understand what he do is not good.. And he hurts me very badly by doing all this and he is one of my old friend and all i want is that he get some sense of good and bad and i can not see him being punished by your theory.

Please note that this is my perspective on this matter.

I agree with you that God is Love, God loves all, however there is something we have to do on our part and that is to be more like God, since we were created in His image and likeness. If we want to be with Him forever, we have to know the way and I believe Jesus is the way.

Jesus is the son of His Love. God is Love and The Holy Spirit is the spirit of His love which dwells in every person that makes Jesus the Lord of their life which helps us to be more like Him.

Yes I believe we are giving free will be that is so we can see that choosing God is better than not choosing Him. It's like choosing Heaven or Hell, Love or Hate, The Truth or Lies.

John 8:32

"And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Again I agree God is LOVE. I believe God loves us but hates the sin that we commit. God is in total opposition to sin, because God is Perfect and cannot sin. No one is perfect but God however that should always remind us that we'll always need Him. Always need love. Like a good parent loves their child but strongly dislike it when he or she tells lies over and over again. They will correct them if they love them. If not, they don't love them.

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

Fear has torment, which is the opposite of Love and God doesn't want anyone to experience torment I'm sure you know. God is Love and Love is God.

1 John 4:16

"So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him."

God wants us to be more like Him. He loves us either way but He hopes that we choose to be more like Him. If we choose not to be like Him, He still will love us but one day we will be eternally separated from Him, /ea/ hell. Hell is in total opposition of Heaven which is where God who is Love dwells. Heaven is in total opposition of hell.

Romans 5:8

"But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

God loves us so much that He gave us His only begotten son so that we could have an open relationship with God the father.

1 John 4:19

We love because HE first loved us.

It's a life lesson that we all are learning. I know I am nevertheless, no one has got it down to the T, but God is there to help us along the way. He loves us in an unconditional way however our time on earth is where we choose to be with Him forever or not. I pray that you see that. It's vitally important that we who were created in His image that we understand that we are here to make a choice. And I choose love. I choose heaven.

It is sin to have pre-marital sex-Period!The bible calls it fornication.Yes God is love but He is also a judging God-He is Holy and we must walk in Holiness too.

Good day to all, I know that there is much debate on living with someone before marriage. Now please understand, I am a Bible believing Child of God, but I do live with my boy friend. I still attend church weekly, but am not invited to sing on the worship team or other activities within the church. BUT I will say that your active participation in the lives of those who do not attend church may cultivate a seed to get to know Christ and possibly grow to attend a church. I work, as do a lot of people, the job and field and even the people around you see the light of Jesus within you. I know I am going to marry my boyfriend, but I have agreed to let him make the decision as to when.

My faith rests in the Holy Spirit inviting my boyfriend to make the decision on when. I listened to a message on getting off the wrong path, yet we are taught you are so far from God, that we don't think we can turn back.

That's what makes me sad, we have a God who loves us, sent himself to the cross to settle the debt, in the courts of God. Because God did not overlook the offenses He demanded Payment for those offenses and Jesus paid for ALL. He gave us the Holy Spirit that we may hear what God says to us directly. and yes the Holy Spirit is God as well. We have that relationship with Him, that we need to work on like every relationship in our lives. I love my boyfriend but because of other events in my life I had a hard time trusting him.

We know we love God and we have NO reason to not trust Him, but we have so many distractions that we fail to have a thoughtful relationship or allow our time and choices to reflect them. So when our issues come up and we hear a man tell us you are wrong, yes we need to refer to the living word of God, and we need to meditate, and we need to seek His guidance, and allow Him a place to speak intimately with you. And ultimately you make the decision but if you work with the Holy Spirit in those areas and when given the decision ,do decide. Remember He loves us and will lead you through it again until your decision reflects how you feel with your relationship. I am sorry, I want to explain more, but I feel this is sufficient for now.
