Chalke Talk 58: If God loves everyone, what is the point of Jesus’s life?

Since Steve first commented that “God is a God of love, and ultimately loves everyone” he’s received numerous questions online and in-person about how this reconciles with different parts of the bible.

One particular question he receives frequently is “If God loves everyone, what as the point of Jesus’s life?” In this week’s Chalke Talk Steve responds to this question with, “the cross isn’t about God’s anger, instead, it is about humanity’s anger, cruelty, violence, and longing for retribution – and God’s dogged love.”

In this week’s Chalke talk Steve responds to this question with, “the cross isn’t about God’s anger, instead, it is about humanity’s anger, cruelty, violence and longing for retribution – and God’s dogged love.” Steve goes on to reference the multiple examples of Jesus’s approach to non-violence and peace and how we can’t separate that from what his overall sacrifice means for us.

So what do you think? 

If God loves everyone, what was the point of Jesus life? Why bother remembering the crucifixion or getting others to believe?
