July 19, 2007, on this blog: ‘God hates divorce’
I don’t think God’s holiness and God’s love are as irreconcilable as the club-wielding “God hates divorce/you” crowd seems to think. I’ve had the privilege of knowing a few saints who devoted their lives to imitating and demonstrating the love of God. These people also became models of God’s holiness. I’ve also known many pious folk who devoted their lives to imitating and demonstrating the holiness of God. None of those people ever seemed to become a model of God’s love.
