When I asked about this topic on another Reformed forum, the question was posed, "If God hates the wicked, how can He also love everyone at the same time?" This is a new topic for me, it's an aspect of Reformed Baptist theology that I've never studied before and thought I'd bring it up. Quote: "...how is it that God can love men? He HATES the wicked. Yet He loves the Righteous. Well what about those saints before the cross of Christ? How was God able to demonstrate His love for them if they had not already been justified. The answer is He could not unless of course He already saw them as justified in Christ (righteous) from before the foundation of the world. God loves all of His people because He's always viewed them in Christ (timely speaking)." Well, what do you think? Is there much on the net about this topic? Peace and thank you.
