  • Can I Tell My Child That Jesus Loves Them?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Jul 23, 2011 Category: Articles

    Is it right to tell my child that Jesus loves them?  Yes, no, no and yes. First, we rightly affirm that there is a form of love that God has for each and every living human. We all bear His image and that is sufficient to elicit His love in a certain sense.  Sometimes called His love of benevolence, the Bible teaches that God has a general good will toward men, such as was announced to the shepherds at the birth of Jesus (Luke 2:14).
