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 faithfulness.
