ANSWERS: 33
  • Because there are soooo many of us.
  • According to HQ 3:57 “God loveth not wrongdoers.” and, according to HQ 2:222, “Truly God loveth those who turn unto Him.” It would be safe to say that all His prophets, including Jesus, would take a similar view of the sinners and the repenters.
  • Because someone has to and his followers often won't.
  • Grace!
  • Jesus loves everyone, even sinners. For Christ's sake they tortured him to death. He doesn't need to prove anything to anyone about how he forgave his murderers and the forgiveness he bestowed upon these people.
  • God loves all people unconditionally. This means there are no conditions needed to be met to merit His love. God loves the worst sinner just as much as He loves the best saint. Being Love, God can do nothing else. This does not mean that He approves of all of our actions. There is a fundamental difference between love and approval. Some people call this "love the sinner, hate the sin." Anyone who states, "God hates these people or those people" does not understand basic Christianity. Here are a couple of quotes about God as Love from C. S. Lewis that I really like: "He [God] has paid us the intolerable compliment of loving us, in the deepest, most tragic, most inexorable sense. .... Love, in its own nature, demands the perfecting of the beloved; ... mere "kindness" which tolerates anything except suffering in its object is, in that respect, at the opposite pole from Love." "You ask for a loving God; you have one ... not a senile benevolence that drowsily wishes you to be happy in your own way, not the cold philanthropy of a conscientious magistrate, not the care of a host who feels responsible for the comfort of his guests, but the CONSUMING FIRE HIMSELF, the Love that made the worlds, persistent as the artist's love for a child, jealous, inexorable, exacting as love between the sexes..." "The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell." See also the fourth chapter of the first letter of John. With love in Christ.
  • Because God is love. and Jesus is God (fully man and fully God).
  • Because sinners have more fun. =)
  • He just does. He loves us just because He chooses to love us, even though we do not deserve it one bit. I know I don't, yet He loved me enough to shed His precious blood and die for me on the cross of Calvary. Hallelujah what a Savior we have! That He would die for you and me and that He is risen and has defeated death and will save all who call upon His Name! -In the service of the Master. Thank you and God bless you!
  • He loves all of God's creations, including those who have sinned. Jesus & the concept of Love are like twins. Jesus Is Love. He is Most Righteous... & therefore is a model of all that is right & best. He is our best role model! He is Everything that is Good.. & therefore extends his love even to sinners, in that it might heal them, & hopefully awaken them to know God, to be more perfect & to live far more blessed. but keep in mind, that sinners AREN'T promised access to Heaven. though they are loved, does not mean they will automatically go to Heaven. Only God decides who gets to go to Heaven, Not Mortal People!
  • It makes the character a bit better.
  • Because we're so much fun to hang out with!!
  • Why does anyone love anyone? You just do. Jesus hates the sin that keeps us away from God so much that he died to cover it, and enable anyone who turns to God to be accepted. The advice I would give is: don't ask why. We will never know. BUT thank God that He does and accept the forgiveness He holds out by virtue of the death of Jesus.
  • A few have already mentioned here that God is love. That is a good start, but by no means final. The essence (esse) of God is love, yet his essence is manifested via his existense (existere) by means of wisdom. Only a discerning love, a love that knows the difference between good and evil as well as truth and falsity is true love. Since we also know that God is good, God may only love the things of good and truth, and He must HATE anything in total opposition to these (evil and falsity and the things therefrom derived). All that said, we can say this. Why does Jesus love sinners? Well, I think we can clarify this now and say that He loves what is good in them and hates what is evil or false. What is good in a sinner? To make us human, God gave us the gift of reason and the ability to will according to that reason; thus, He gave us all a mind and a will, the two things that make us human (the image and likeness of God). Our minds have the ability to operate according to God's wisdom, and consequently, our wills, infused with a love for God and truth, are able to bring about the good things of wisdom. These good things, mind and will are in all people, including sinners. Though they derive from God, they are still appear to be our own because if they didn't, we could not think and act as individuals, and consequently, could not be rewarded or punished for our actions. (Salvation not being a reward but grace. Rewards are the good things of heaven given to those who have loved God. Punishment the opposite.) Thus, since sinners are instilled with a reason that may know truth and bring forth good from that knowledge, they may be loved for this since it is good. Hope this helps.
  • Because if He doesn't, He would not love anyone at all. =)
  • because he is the perfect father
  • BECAUSE HE'S NOT REAL! Made up people can do anything.
  • Jesus came as a savior, to save none other than sinners themselves. But in order to do this, his capacity to love must be great enough to hold the might of humanity's sin. To save calls forth one's greatness in love. Jesus love sinners because it is his mission, and it is in his heart to save them.
  • He created them and know them. He has mercy on them and gives everyone a chance to except him into their hearts. He is so good that he loves us even when we sin. That is the love that draws us even closer to his heart.
  • They sell the best weed.
  • Because *we're all* "sinners"! ;-)
  • Scarcity of options!
  • if you read luke 15 it will help with this question. Basically it says God is like a shepard and would leave his 99 sheep just to look for one that has strayed. Like us..everyone is a sinner..just some havent asked for forgivness of their sins. my favorite part of this chapter is verse 7. It says "there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over 99 rightous persons who do not need to repent." Also, there is a old quote/saying that says "God draws some of the most beautifully straight lines with the most crooked of sticks." I love this because many 'christains' today have the wrong attitude and have given christains a bad rep. so much so that non-beleivers RUN away becuase why would they want to be apart of a group of people who have always judged them. christains need to love 'sinners' just as jesus did. In the bible the pharisees even critizized him for socializing with sinners..which i beleive many christains today would do also. We just need to remember that.. many people God used in the bible were 'sinners' but god also used them to do some of his best work!!Some examples of 'unperfect christains'/sinners in the bible are--> Joseph(had been in prison).Jacob (had favorites with his kids). Job (lost everything he had worked for). Jeremiah (was depressed and suicidal). rehab (was a prostitute), david (lusted a married woman and then had her husband killed!!) Abraham (had a child with his concubine and then threw her out),peter (denied christ multiple times).Solomon (married wives with pagan gods).Jacob stole his brothers birth right...and this lists goes on and on. all the way to Adam and eve... basically..EVERYone is a sinner!! remember that. all sins are equal. so stop judging others!!
  • Because if he hated sinners noone would become Chrisian. The whole idea of Christianity was to set out rules to be followed. Ie what we are doing is abismal and we are all going to go to hell unless we turn to Christ and if we do and are truely sorry we will be forgiven.
  • He doesnt. he doesnt even exist ffs!
  • If he didn't...he'd be out of a job.
  • Because he himself was a sinner.http://www.666blacksun.com/2.html
  • the church needed people willing to lie to the flock , kill for their cause , and steal ideas , and holidays from the pagans and call them their own. so ,the more the sinner the better . ... and they needed the type of people that get mad at this answer and leave a nasty comment ;-)
  • I guess being a man himself, he was just loving his fellow man. I don't believe that Jesus was anything more than a man.
  • He wants to love somebody, and there are no sinless people floating around.
  • Because He has the greatest heart.
  • they are the most fun to be around
  • He's got to love SOMEONE.
