Some on the list have mentioned in the past that God does not love
sinners, and tried to use recent statements on "unconditional" love to
prove their point.
I'd like to quote Elder Neal Maxwell, perhaps the current scriptural
scholar among the apostles, and definitely the most eloquent and prolific
writer amongst them. In his book "These things shall give thee
experience", he states the following concerning God's "perfect love":
"God loves us all-- saint and sinner alike -- with a perfect and
everlasting love. We have His love, if not His approval. It is our love
for Him that remains to be developed. "
IOW, God loves all, but His approval is dependent upon our obedience and
