Another entry into the annals of crappy things Christians failed to think all the way through, this image declares that “Jesus loves you” and that “conditions do not apply” (emphasis mine).
As an atheist, that’s very good news. It means that Jesus loves me, and i don’t have to do a thing to enjoy that love.
Now, most Christians (at least the ones that know the Bible) would point out that God only loves believers — that unbelievers are looked upon with wrath by God… not with love.
And it’s not really enough to believe. If you believe, you’re expected to bear fruits of that belief. (If you believe and do nothing, then the party line of Christendom is that you weren’t really a believer to begin with.)
So sure, Jesus loves you… on the condition that you believe in & devote your life to him.
And in light of that, i have good news for all of you parents out there: For most, if not all, of you reading this, there isn’t a thing in the world that would separate your children from your love, no matter what they do. Your love for them is truly without condition.
Requiring your children to love, honor, and obey you in order for them to enjoy your love? Well, that would be the godly method of parenting, now wouldn’t it?
