I hope that I am the person of faith that can help others understand that God is cool. I am very sorry for the times people have seen God misrepresented by some of his children. We wonder why the church doesn’t have a good reputation. Some people have been put off by some of God’s children. It’s important for believers to ask forgiveness when we have not been the best we can be. God wants us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. I believe in being inclusive and I think God is there for people who believe in him and for those who don’t. Yes, I think Atheists are loved by God too. Friends, God is crazy for you and each of you is special, don’t let anyone tell you different.
Perhaps we should look at our beliefs in a modern context that is inclusive of those who have been on the fringes of life.
God loves human beings. God loves the world. Not an ideal human, but human beings as they are; not an ideal world, but the real world. What we find repulsive in their opposition to God, what we shrink back from with pain and hostility, namely, real human beings, the real world, this is for God the ground of unfathomable love.
