Obviously a religious person is going to say yes and a non religious person is going to say no, why do you even ask?
Many people feel they can't love somebody they had never seen, touched, heard or had a personal relationship. In truth if you look around you, God is in everything and everybody. They include parents, lovers, teachers, friends, enemies, criminals, illegal immigrants and the sick. You can love everybody differently. Yet all that love if you have, leads to love of God. I believe I do.
I grew up a rationalist, with no real belief in God. But direct mystical experience - not religion - has changed that. Yes, I love God. Or, rather, God is Love, and God is everyone and everything, including me. I like what Thesource said. And, to reply to DanteX460, for me. loving God has nothing to do with religion. And I know many people who are religious, and might say they love God, but do not act like they love him. For how could anyone love a Creator and harm His creation, or Love a Father or Mother, and harm His or Her children. The evidence of Love of God is harmlessness to all beings.
Even if your god was real I would hate him for all the horribleness and deaths he caused.
He doesn't cause that, we do. Good news: only Love conquers hate. Hate never conquers hate. (Buddha) May you learn the love that transforms hate into love. May you and all beings be happy, peaceful, & safe & wish harm to no one. That is Love.
I love myself, my husband, my children, my family, the planet, animals, my home, my life, being a mother and wife, the seasons changing, and many other things. However no God falls on that list. To each their own.
