Is God Love? Is God Love? We have to acknowledge squarely that evil is part of our evolving universe. We should own up to the evil which we, as autonomous persons, inflict upon others. God, the creative energy, shares our suffering and the suffering of all creation. We may, paradoxically, experience that suffering has brought us great good, because it was transformed. Objection: “How can a good God allow innocent children to suffer?” Objection: “Only a cruel God could design a Hell!” Objection: “Prayer of petition is riddled with contradictions.” Because God is LOVE, God can fulfil our deepest aspirations God’s being Love reveals a structure of mutual dependence in our universe. God’s Love offers us forgiveness. God-is-Love means that we have been made capable of giving and receiving real happiness. God’s Love guarantees life beyond death.
